During a chat with WSJ Magazine Editor in Chief Kristina O’Neill to promote her show The Undoing, Nicole admitted that she and Antonia have their own ‘secret language.’
The topic came up after Kidman was asked about her connection to co-star Hugh Grant.
Recalling how they first met over two decades ago, the Big Little Lies talent said: ‘I’ve known him since we were in our early 20s.
‘We went to dinner at a place in London called The Ivy with his then girlfriend Liz Hurley and my sister and just a huge bunch of people and we just kind of clicked.’
That night Hugh became fascinated with Nicole and her sister’s special style of communicating.

Nicole explained: ‘My sister and I were speaking our secret language and Hugh was fascinated, because my sister and I have this language that we can speak so we can be understood in a crowd and nobody can understand us.’
O’Neill prodded for a bit more information but the Moulin Rouge star only laughed saying: ‘If I end up telling you then you’ll be able to decode it.’
Nicole called the secret language ‘silly’ but said it’s always come in handy.
‘It is helpful, let me tell you. It was really helpful when we were like at parties and they were and we had our boyfriends and stuff we would be able to use our language and they’d all be like “What?”‘
‘It’s a really good tip all the sisters out there,’ she went on.
