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 was looking more than fabulous at the Apple Store Soho in New York City on Friday (December 3).

The Oscar-winning actress was joined by her co-star Aaron Eckhart as she discussed their new film Rabbit Hole to a sold out audience.

In the upcoming flick, Nicole plays a mother suffering through the unimaginable loss of her young child and the big screen beauty says she found it difficult to let go of the characters at the end of each day.

“[It] deeply affects me,” she said. “There were times when I woke in the middle of the night and I was having nightmares and I was really shaken by it. And that’s when I know when something’s really seeped into my subconscious and is disturbing me.”

Nicole Kidman had support by her side as hubby Keith Urban joined her at the premiere of her new movie Rabbit Hole at the Paris Theatre in New York City today (December 2).

The 43-year-old Oscar-winning actress looked chic and stylish despite a very early start to her day where she spent the entire morning promoting her new much-buzzed about drama.

Meanwhile, Nicole says she is is still haunted by the devastation she witnessed first-hand when she travelled to Haiti to meet with women left homeless by January’s earthquake, admitting it was “just horrifying.”

The Aussie beauty star flew to the country in July as part of her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations’ Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and visited survivors living in temporary camps.

But Nicole admits seeing so many people in poverty in the tents was a difficult sight to deal with.

She told Good Morning America earlier today, “I couldn’t believe it, that it was so close to America and that it was literally rubble. The tent cities and stuff are just horrifying and it’s gonna take so long to rebuild.”

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.”
