Keith Urban’s wife tells Vogue playing “Celeste,” whose husband is physically and emotionally abusive, has left her black and blue.

“I didn’t realize how much of it penetrated me,” Nicole says. “I would go home at night sometimes and be in a lot of pain, and I had to take things like Advil because I was being thrown around physically. I was really bruised.”

Always a supportive husband, Keith couldn’t help but feel “devastated” after seeing the actual abuse Nicole endured for the role.

“At one point Keith was like, ‘I’m going to take a photo of your back because it’s covered in deep, massive bruises.’ ... But then he would say, ‘But I have an artist wife!’ He knows that’s how I work,” she says. “I don’t even notice it half the time.”

The series finale of Big Little Lies airs Sunday (4/2) on HBO.
