Nicole Kidman opens her home to Vogue for the mag's August 2015 issue, revealing that her Nashville digs are, well, just as stunning as she is.

The star fronts next month's cover in a sexy, backless sequin dress from Marc Jacobs' fall-winter 2015 collection (more on that later), and dishes about family life in Tennessee with Keith Urban and their two little ones, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret (Kidman also shares an adult son and daughter with Tom Cruise). In a candid interview with writer Jason Gay, the actress admits she wishes she had met and had more children with Urban sooner.

"I wish I could have met him much earlier and had way more children with him. But I didn't," she told the magazine. "I mean, if I could have had two more children with him, that would have been just glorious. But as Keith says, ‘The wanting mind, Nicole. Shut it down.'"

For now, she has her hands full with two daughters under age 10, and has been keeping them close even while abroad filming her latest starring feature, Queen of the Desert, in Morocco.

"They come and sit on the set and go, ‘Where are the snacks?'" Kidman quipped of her girls, who often visit her on set.

Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs has Kidman's back—for good reason!

The designer came to the actress' defense over Instagram shade being thrown over her Vogue issue, which he posted to his account this morning.

While some commenters were quick to note that Kidman pretty much crushes the cover (we agree with the user who simply wrote "Queen"), others went the, well, critical route—writing venomous comments about her face ("She doesn't even look human anymore," one user sniped) and demeanor.

"Amazing....she looks miserable though," one person wrote after Jacobs posted the cover, while another added, "Yes she does look miserable...and terribly uncomfortable."

Marc came to the rescue just in time, of course: "All you haters... When were you last given a cover of Vogue? Damn people have a lot of negative energy," he wrote. (Well put!)

Bottom line: Don't come for Nicole Kidman, especially when you don't have, oh, four or more Vogue covers under your belt.
