Nicole and Keith married in 2006, just a year after meeting at the G'Day LA gala celebrating the achievements of Australians in the US.

Nicole, who is currently filming the second season of Big Little Lies, said of their strange telephone habit: 'We've never texted.

'We talk all the time and we FaceTime but we just don't text because I feel like texting can be misrepresentative at times.

Glitter in Givenchy like Nicole wearing a sequin embellished dress

Nicole Kidman was hard to miss among the celebs arriving at The American Songbook Gala last month.

Wearing a Givenchy gown from their autumn/winter '18 collection, the actress literally looked glowing under the spotlights.

The dress was covered top-to-toe in sparkling sequins, making this pick one of our favourites of the night.

Those long sleeves and that high neck are so elegant. Why not give a similar dress a go at your next big event?

'And I've had the thing where I re-read texts and I'm like, "What does that mean?" and then read it to somebody and go, "Can you interpret that?"... I don't want that between my lover and I.'

The Oscar winner claimed that she and Keith always preferred calling each other, telling Parade: 'We just do voice to voice, or skin to skin, as we always say.' 

The couple married in the Sydney suburb of Manly in 2006.
