She spends more time with him than her husband and describes him as 'her rock', but who is the handsome man that Nicole Kidman has kept hidden from the world?
The dashing hunk is often seen enjoying secret dinner dates with Nicole, 48, where the pair spend hours locked in deep conversation and huddled close to one another, gazing into each other's eyes.
But while the Oscar-winning actress has gone to great lengths to keep her close relationship with businessman Per Saari, 40, a secret, friends reveal he's a constant presence in Nicole's life.
‘They spend a lot of time together off-set, over dinners, going to the movies or taking hikes', says a close pal.
‘When they’re working, they’re joined at the hip – these two have such a bond, it's unshakable and impossible to miss'.
Nicole and Per met more than a decade ago when they set up the productions company Blossom Films, with their relationship going from professional to personal. Now Per is her closest confidant on all matters - including her recent divorce talks and marriage woes with husband Keith.
Keith's crazy with jealousy, there's no doubt about it', says a source close to the 48-year-old singer. 'There're always out for dinner and she is forever texting him. Per's always by her side whenever Keith's away and Keith hates it.'
