We’ve all been caught short by a sudden downpour just as we’re about to step outside.
Including Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban who were heading home from a morning out when the heavens opened.
But there was no waiting for the shower to stop for the actress as she shunned an umbrella and dashed through the raindrops to her car.
And putting her endlessly long legs to good use, she sprinted past Urban, who trailed behind with their daughter Sunday Rose, two, in his arms.
Clutching a big bag and Sunday’s pink spotty Wellington boots, Nicole got to the car first as Keith electronically opened the locks from his keys.
Both laughed as they dashed through the downpour, one of many to have hit a very wet Los Angeles this weekend.
Nicole was last month nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Rabbit Hole.
But she won’t be on a film set again until later this year after she announced recently that she is taking a six-month sabbatical from Hollywood to devote time to her growing brood.
Nicole and Urban, both 43, welcomed a second daughter to their family, Faith Margaret, to their family in December, who was born via a surrogate over Christmas.
Nicole also has two adopted children – Isabella, 18, and 16-year-old Connor – from her marriage to Tom Cruise, 48.
They live with their father and third wife Katie Holmes, 32, and their four-year-old stepsister Suri.
