Nicole Kidman hates looking in the mirror.
The 41-year-old actress attempts to steer clear of reflective surfaces because she is not obsessed with her appearance.
She said: "I'm not enamoured with youth. There isn't wisdom in youth. My own sense of vanity is not that strong. I get ready in five minutes. I'm not a mirror person. But I like to look healthy - the youthfulness is in health. It's very important.
"Maybe that comes from my mom having breast cancer. I've seen people suffer. So my desire to stay agile - I want that! I want to be able to run and walk and hike, and get out there. I love being outdoors and I feel caged if I can't get out. To see the sun come up - it puts me in a place to go, 'What a great day.' "
Nicole - who has a three-month-old daughter Sunday Rose with husband Keith Urban - also revealed she has never felt like she fits in.
She added to Parade magazine: "I grew up as a fair-skinned, sort of Irish-descent girl. I was always on the outside, on the periphery of things. As much as I wanted to be a surfer chick, the girl down on the beach who was the sporty girl, I had to be the bookish girl because I was put in dark rooms and protected. I always felt like a bit of an outsider."
