NICOLE Kidman has revealed that husband Keith Urban took four months to call her after their first meeting.

Ellen DeGeneres shared a picture of Kidman and Urban at the G'Day USA event in 2005 where they met which prompted the Lion star to divulge that she didn't think her now husband was interested in her.

"Well, we met and that night - the craziest thing is to have a photo of when you first met. Someone just took that photo and sent it to us but I remember thinking I had such a crush on him, and he wasn't interested in me," she said.

"That's not true," DeGeneres protested. "How is that possible? And did he explain why he didn't? He must have just been shy, he must have been overwhelmed with emotion."

Kidman said she has never pressed Urban on why it took him so long to pick up the phone. "We're here now and it's all good," she said.

"There's certain things, and I think anyone in a marriage would agree with this, you just don't, just leave that," she said. "We're here now and it's all good. We don't need to hash up all that stuff right? So I should just shut my mouth."

"Really? I don't know. Seems like he didn't like you,' DeGeneres. "That you would stay with him is weird."
