2 min


Nicole Kidman has showcased her survival skills – along with a healthy dose of daring – by catching a giant black spider by her family swimming pool.

The 51-year-old actress filmed her successful disposal of the unwanted pool guest, posting the video on Instagram.

The clip shows Kidman calmly approaching the spider, as it scuttles along the pool edge and heads down towards the water.

During the video Kidman’s two children, Sunday Rose, 10, and Faith Margaret, 7, can be heard screaming in the background.

One of the children then says: “Get back mom, step back! It’s going in the pool.”

Then one asks: “It’s a tarantula right mom?”

At the end of the video, Kidman holds up a glass to show she has safely trapped the creature inside using a blue biscuit tin lid.

Laughing, the actress says: “I’m having to take care of this spider. Help!”

Alongside her video, which has now been viewed more than 350,000 times, the animal loving actress wrote: “House guest! Catch and release…spider released unharmed and healthy”, followed by an emoji heart.

Kidman is currently filming the second series of TV drama Big Little Lies in Los Angeles, in which she plays abused wife Celeste.
