If there's anyone who would understand Nicole Kidman's marriage to Tom Cruise, it's Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Or so says the Oscar-winning actress to Vanity Fair magazine in its December issue. According to Kidman, the intense attention her 11-year union with Cruise received - not unlike the scrutiny Pitt and Jolie are under - actually cranked up the romance.
“There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you," Kidman, 46, says. "And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that—because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
After her divorce from Cruise in 2001, Kidman moved on to country singer Keith Urban and retreated from the spotlight to Nashville, where the couple are raising two kids.
Reflecting on her first marriage, Kidman remarks that at 23, she was still "so young."
"And you know," she continues, "with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”
The bottom line is this.. Although Miami Beach seems to be a very highly populated area, it's really a small town. Plus the gay community is a close knit group of people. With that said, it said to hear about Tom's past marriages etc. The frustration he has built inside of him is not all about anger management. It's about that he's having a rough time fighting that he's gay. Oh yeah, he's been running around while married to Kidman during those years. Let's put it like this, "only time will tell" because at that time, he won't need to make anymore movies. LOL
We in Nashville are happy to have her and Keith even part-time. She is always gracious. Of course, in Nashville we have a lot of high profile people and usually give them some space.
Why would anyone in their proper mind live in Nashville? Tornados and red-necks... YEEEEE HAAAAA! Let's get some more beer! NO ONE OF ANY CONSEQUENCE LIVES IN NASHVILLE.
She was pregnant with George Clooney's child, and Tom Cruise knew it, which is why he–sterile he is, as well as gay–divorced her. The miscarriage was fortunate in that it avoided a big old DNA mess coming out. If you think that kid he "had" with Katie Holmes is actually his, I have a bridge in NYC I will sell you at a discount.
That's why he had a kid with Katie holmes... Or are you implying that is Chris Klein's kid? No Wait, maybe it's Dawson's from that TV show.
I am surprised most people are blind to Cruise's sterility. Anyone who knows Cruise's past know he couldn't give Mimi Rogers children so she divorced him. Then Cruise marries Nicole thinking since she young she may not want to have children rightaway but Nicole must have wanted children and Cruise talked her into adoption; hence, adopting a couple of children. Then he goes and finds another young one whom somehow talked into artificial insemination just so he have the world know he wasn't shooting blanks, which is what Katie held over his head; hence, the quickie divorce without him contesting it.
Tom Cruise is sterile? I just thought he had no dick. Both? Oh... That explains Keith Urban. She like fem guys.
Tom wasn't her great love. I'm sure that is due in part to the fact that he is gay, but I'm sure what she said has some truth to it as well.
Travolta and Cruise... forever.
The real Tom Cruise does not have an emotional past...his parents divorced when he was very young they had problems but the family was strong enough to hold it together......he has 4 sisters and his mother who all had too pitch in. They were ok financially but not rich. His mom and sisters took a backseat on their careers to manage their brother's acting career. His sisters are his managers. This is a family unit that works together and created a family business for Tom Cruise.
So you've established the fact that you know how to use Wikipedia, and little else.
Scientology kept the children. She was not allowed to have them. Scientology is best explained in the new book, Inside Scientology. It's quite an eye opener. It is brutal and mind controlling. Those attracted to it, think it can always make them better. Snaring Cruise was calculated. He had an emotional past, so he was an easy target. These people are crazy. They wanted to use Cruise to snare other celebrities. The top guys are really "fat cats". The book will let you see how manipulative they are. A must read.
I read the book and totally agree...
Fat cats are at the top of just about every religious organization.
Why does the common response to this seem to think she is dissing Tom?? She was responding to her Marriage with Keith.The no disrespect comment was gracious on her part but it is clearly her love of Keith she is talking about. People do move on after a bad marriage and make amends. This is at least how I read it.
has too follow Tom (Cruise's) way or she will never see her children again....Tom (Cruise) is a controller and this is why his next marriage will not survive either. If he does not pull back on the Scientology which he has, he is not talking about as much as before he will never find love, his career has lost steam because of his Scientology control ...he is 52 years old not 25 years old....he needs too get back too basics.....he is still handsome, , he needs to remember why he became famous...his mother and sisters help and taking a backseat for him so he would become famous....acting, blockbuster sales, came from a wonderful family and he has a wonderful personality but he is a controller which is not going to work in his favor much longer.
She is beautiful, I liked that couple with Tom.
Nicole is such a class act, she deserves so mcuh better than Tom, so gald she has found true love.
Unlke the wanna be stars ( trashy Kim K.) she has real talent and deserves a star on the walk of fame!
but there you are.
More weddings..... More divorces
At least she no longer touch that cult loving hobbit....
She just can't seem to shut up about Tom! Enough, already.
Vanity Fair magazine asked her. This is a blurb from that article. Some people seem to think celebrities run outside and call for the CNN Marquee Blog to ranble.
So she is raising her 2 children with Keith. What happened to the two she adopted, where are they?
When Tom Cruise blindsided Nicole Kidman with divorce papers in 2001—just three days shy of the couple’s 10th wedding anniversary and while she was unknowingly pregnant with his child—the movie icon didn’t simply throw one of Hollywood’s most superficially idyllic marriages under the bus. With his citation of “irreconcilable differences” and calculating sangfroid, Cruise also effectively terminated another union: between his adopted children, Isabella and Connor, and the only source of maternal love they had ever known.
Although Kidman and Cruise’s custody arrangement was never made public, their split effectively tore bonds between mother and young apart; the kids remained in Los Angeles to live in Cruise’s mansion, and the actress returned to her native Australia and there they stayed. Isabella said in a recent interview that she and Connor see Kidman, at best, “sometimes.” According to Kidman, the children continued to keep their distance from her into their late teens, even after the Hemingway & GellHorn star remarried country music hitmaker Keith Urban in 2006 and relocated part-time to Nashville. “They live with Tom, which was their choice,” Kidman told Hello! magazine in 2010. “I’d love them to live with us, but what can you do?”
Isabella (commonly known as Bella) and Connor grew up heavily indoctrinated in the Church of Scientology, were home-schooled with a scholastic emphasis on the tenets of the religion, and grew up socializing with other high-profile Scientologists. Whether by coercion or choice, the two ended up siding with their father rather than Kidman, who never converted to the controversial faith. “My kids don’t call me mommy, they don’t even call me mom,” Kidman said in 2007. “They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it.”
If "she was unknowingly pregnant with his child," what happened to the child?
It was abducted by aliens, in following with Scientology prophesy.
aand like what here...
Sorry...I don't get the tude...do you?
"with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now".... the guy has been married 3 times divorced 3 times. I think disrespect is alright....!!
I wish she'd spill the beans already
too much with the scientology..
Is funny ! she still can't say nothing about him why? because they sign a paper that the motives of divorce will be never reveled otherwise she will be sue big time !
Right, the whintoligists are lawyer-heavy and litigation-happy so she's better off with less said.
Bubba, You only wish you had a woman that looked half as good as Nicole!!
Very diplomatic comments. I was hoping she'd shine some light on that Scientology business. For a six foot woman married to a five foot guy, eleven years wasn't a bad run. I'd like to hear what she has to say when she's drunk.
I bet she's really dying to speak about the effect scientology had on their relationship since it DID ruin it and stop her children (with Tom) speaking to her ever again. That must be painful – to have children you raised for 11 years reject you like that. If she ever wants to hear from them again she knows she can't speak publicly about scientology due to their strict rules about no contact with people who speak badly of the church. Such a disgust-ing "religion".
The "off the record" comments must be priceless
Who cares? Let this relationship DIE already. They have been divorced for years now. Shut up and find writers that have something to say not hag on the same old thing over and over.
Nobody is forcing those who whine "enough enough" to read this story.
her hair is thinning badly in the front. she tries to hide it with bangs but it's getting more noticeable. she'll be wearing a wig soon and working for the Hallmark channel.
Bubba, you must be one of the those Scientologists, sticking up for a fellow cult member by disparaging his ex-wife. Amiright?
She is almost 50. Still beautiful but can't expect her to look 20-30s forever!
Oh my, you must REALLY think you are a catch!!
She's 45 so is she almost 50 or almost 40?
Oh I think she gets it really well.
She looks 62 with all that bad plastic surgery. Honestly. She needs to work BEHIND the camera now. Please. For humanity.
