He said, “It was everything you dreamed of. She was such a lovely person. I pinched myself every day, especially after doing love scenes with Nicole Kidman. Nicole is so gorgeous!”
The actor – who is 20 years younger than the actress – added that he was impressed by her acting skills.
“Nicole was something else and was always in character. She didn’t get weird method, like some actors do, but I have never seen anyone so centered.”
The former High School Musical star also said he hopes he finds a woman like Kidman one day.
He shared, “[I hope my wife will have] a sense of ambition and a sense of freedom, which is a careful mix. You have to balance those two. I haven’t exactly found it yet.”
The Lucky One gets released in the U.K. on May 3.
