Los Angeles: Actress Nicole Kidman says she has hosted parties with snakes in the past, but avoided them last Halloween since it would have scared her children.
The "Paddington" actress, who has children Sunday, six, and four-year-old Faith, finds it interesting to touch the slippery serpents, so much so that she enjoys hosting events and inviting plenty of the legless creatures along, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Kidman, who is married to Keith Urban, said: "I had a party once where I was gonna invite... well I've had snakes at parties before, but I had a Halloween party this year and we had to cancel the snake charmer because the kids would be too scared," she said speaking on the talk show "Conan".
"I've also had a party where I've had lots of different wild animals and yeah, I love animals," she added.
The 47-year-old actress used to have a pet funnel-web spider, which can cause death in humans, living in her family swimming pool during her younger years.
"We grew up with things like spiders in the pool. We have a spider called a funnel-web, which can exist in a bubble. It can exist in a bubble, in the pool. And you have to look in the pool before you swim to make sure of that...I mean this isn't frequent, but I know to check the pool," she said.
