Oscar-winning Australian actress Nicole Kidman has broken her silence around her 10-year marriage to Tom Cruise.
Nicole, 48, who has remained notoriously silent about her marriage to Scientology’s most famous devotee, has shed some light on her decade as Mrs. Cruise.
She told London’s The Evening Standard newspaper: “I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don’t regret any of it.”
Nicole and Tom, 53, met in 1989 on the set of their film Days of Thunder when Nicole was just 22-years-old and Tom was 28. The were married the next year and, soon after, adopted two children, Connor Cruise and Isabella Cruise.
The couple were married for 10 years but, in 2001, separated with Tom filing for divorce shortly after. Nicole, who has been married to Australian country singer Keith Urban since 2006, has been hesitant to discuss her first marriage publicly, however, in the interview with the Evening Standards, Nicole has explained that the biggest lesson she learned during her marriage to Tom was: “Be the best you can be, not the worst, and think of the children.”
The Moulin Rouge! actress further explained that her new husband was the main reason she rarely discuss her previous marriage,
“Out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss Tom now,” she said.
Nicole and Keith have two daughters together: Sunday Rose Kidman Urban was born in 2008, and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban was born via surrogate in 2010.
