Oprah wrapped up filming her two special Australian shows at the Opera House in Sydney on Tuesday (December 14).

Her special show featured appearances by Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Russell Crowe and Terri and Bindi Irwin, and a special performance by rockers Bon Jovi.

And her famous giveaways were definitely present, with those in attendance receiving pearl necklaces.

Oprah gave $250 000 to cancer sufferer Kristian Anderson and his wife, telling them to take a year off and enjoy their lives.

And the students at Canterbury Boys School had a surprise visit from Jay-Z, with Oprah giving the school $1 million worth of laptops and an upgrade to their music facilities.

But this wasn’t all Oprah had in store — she had a second show to film!

And it wasn’t off to the best of starts, with Hugh Jackman injuring himself when he entered Oprah’s stage via a flying fox. The big screen hunk hurt his eye in the incident, but was well enough to chat to Oprah not long after.

Hugh later managed to get Oprah to try some Vegemite, and Oprah declared, “I like it!”

U2 frontman Bono also made an appearance, and Oprah continued her trend of massive giveaways by giving the crowd diamond necklaces.

Nicole Kidman did a bit of early Christmas shopping with her husband Keith Urban and his parents, Bob and Marienne, while in Nashville, Tennessee this morning (November 30).

First stopping off at Whole Foods followed by a couple retail stores, Nicole and Keith looked more than happy together.

Meanwhile, Nicole reportedly gave up the glamorous trappings of Hollywood to star in low-budget drama Rabbit Hole as she slept on a blow-up bed in a house where the movie was shot.

The Oscar-winning actress scaled back her luxury lifestyle so film bosses could create the emotional movie on a $10 million budget.

Nicole, who also serves as a producer on the drama, reveals, “We lived in the house the movie was shot in, shared the bathroom and had blow-up beds to sleep on. When filming on location in a school, I got changed behind a curtain in the headmistress’ office.”

The film, which sees Nicole play a bereaved mother, is set for release next month.

Keith Urban got candid about his torrid past during his appearance on Oprah today (November 29).

The 43-year-old country crooner revealed that his October 2006 stint in rehab was the third in eight years, and came just four months after he married Nicole Kidman.

Keith says he “went off the rails” and realized “I cannot do this anymore.”

He went on to give praise to Nicole for saving him. “She really should’ve just walked,” he said emotionally. “I’m just glad she didn’t.”

Joined by his family and friends, Nicole staged an intervention and Keith says he canceled a show that night to go into rehab. “I was like, ‘Put the cuffs on. Let’s go!”

He added that the intervention went as well as can be expected. “To see love in action to that degree … I’d never experienced anything like that.”

For her part, when Nicole sat down with Oprah, she said: “Marriage is about every day trying to make it better and working through things. We met at a time in our lives when we were both ready for it.”

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban could barely keep their hands off each other as they arrived at the 44th annual CMA Awards in Nashville, TN tonight (November 10).

“This is one of the most vital times in Nashville in a long, long time,” Keith told CMT during the pre-show, speaking about the state of country music today. “Such diversity – it’s great.”

When asked if baby Sunday Rose is recording yet, Keith said no, but she does have a bit of a Southern accent.

“She says, ‘Y’all’ and ‘G’day, mate,” explained doting mom Nicole. “She’s a mix.”

Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban were spotted picking up their daughter Sunday Rose from what looked to be a children’s day care on Monday (October 4) while spending time in Nashville, Tennessee.

From the looks of Nicole’s outfit consisting of riding boots and khakis, it appears the Oscar-winning actress has become an equestrian rider while she is back home. Or, of course, she just likes the style!

Meanwhile, CLICK HERE to check out an exclusive pic from Nicole’s upcoming flick Trespass.

Directed by Joel Schumacher, the plot centers on a married couple (Nicole and Nicolas Cage), who are being held captive in their home when startling revelations of deception and betrayal arise.

Rising stars Jordana Spiro and Cam Gigandet also make appearances. The script is from Eli Richbourg (executive producer of Blood Creek) and Karl Gajdusek (writer of Taken).

Behind the glamour and glitz offered by their celebrity status, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban look completely content living simply as a happy family in their quiet Nashville community, watching their 2 year old daughter Sunday Rose blossom into a beautiful young girl.

The family enjoyed a sunny fall day on Sunday (October 1) as Keith and Nicole went shopping for pumpkins in the morning before Nicole visited a local Target store to buy a Halloween costume for little Sunday.

Photographed for the first time walking with mommy, little Sunday Rose showed how grown up she’s gotten and how much she resembles her famous parents.

Then just yesterday, Nicole took time out of her busy schedule with a morning jog in Nashville that revealed a bit too much of her anatomy in ill-fitting exercise pants.

While the 43-year-old star stikes an elegant pose on red carpets around the world, her sense of fashion while exercising at home is more old maid than fashion maven.

When Nicole’s assistant pulled up to offer her some water, the actress hiked up her pants well past her waist, suffocating her nether regions and creating a cringeworthy fashion disaster — the dreaded camel toe!
