Nicole Kidman Covers DuJour Magazine Winter 2012

Nicole Kidman Covers DuJour Magazine Winter 2012

Nicole Kidman is triumphant on the cover of DuJour magazine‘s Winter 2012 issue.

Here is what the 45-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her marriage to Tom Cruise: “I was totally smitten—I fell madly, passionately in love. I was reeling with Tom. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him. I was so impulsive and naïve… We were in a bubble, just the two of us. We became very dependent on one another.”

On filming Eyes Wide Shut: “It was an exhausting project, but in the end everyone felt they accomplished something special. I know critics think the movie is dark, but I think there is hope. Stanley [Kubrick] was emphasizing the importance of loyalty and commitment in a marriage, that marriage is a relationship that has to transcend sexuality.”

On how Keith Urban changed her life: “My life changed. He is a wonderful, caring man and he makes me feel secure. We don’t ever like to be separated.”

On how motherhood healed her: “Having my baby has been a healing experience. It took me so long to have a child. I feel enormous gratitude. Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me. It’s a very private thing, but she just has.”

Gorgeous as usual

# 2

She looks fantastic!!! She has taken very good care of herself & she has a happy fullfilling life…Her man is a perfect husband & father…Too bad younger celebs like Angelina Jolie did not take care of herself & she is younger than Nicole…I guess being in an honest, happy, loving relationship is everything!!!

# 3

Dont compare angie to this frozen face boring woman with no personality douche.

# 4

uhm..such glowing loving words about an ex…sounds like she still loves Tom.

PS. @Me..how has Angie not taken care of herself. The woman is a mother of 6, she’s a great humanitarian, a director, ambassador to The UN…and she has a loving partner. Not for nothing NK left her two children with Cruise to pursue her acting career.

# 5

I don’t have anything against Nicole, but she has been divorced from Tom Cruise for over 10 years. There is no point in talking about her marriage or divorce to Tom Cruise anymore.

# 6

She is very attractive.

And it sounds like Tom was her first true, passionate love, and I think that’s cool. It may be the only real, deep honest love he ever has felt for someone. Who knows?

But it’s good that she can remember it fondly but still move on.

# 7

If the journalist ask about tom cruise she answer, it’s simple. STUNNING PHOTO by the way.

# 8

why must everyone be compared to AngelinaJolie? Why is she the standard bearer for everyone and everything….strange…and if by taking care of yourself, you mean freezing your face; you are correct, AJ hasn’t gotten there yet…

The whole article is available on line. It’s long and sort of summarizes her life. Of course, sites will excerpt the Tom parts to get more hits. She loved him, but I think he was pulled away by Miscavige and his religion. Since he is so closed-mouth about her, I think he’s the one regretting it now. She’s moved on with a wonderful man who does not live in a “bubble” and their two adorable little girls.

Why do interviewers still ask Nicole about her old life with Tom Cruise? It seems really disrespectful I mean she has a new family now.

interview aside Nicole dose look beautiful on that cover. :)

Question screening @ 11/13/2012 at 11:33 am

@ally: I find it hard to believe that NK doesn’t have her interview questions screened and can’t find a way to keep from being asked about TC.
If not, then a clear and professional answer like “I have answered that question a million times”, “it’s been more than 10 years and we have both moved on”.
She sounds like she is still in love with TC (person, image, package, etc). She wants to talk about him and their relationship— attention, regret, longing?
Otherwise, stop the question before it’s asked.

On how motherhood healed her….
She became a mother when she adopted. She should have corrected that. It is sad that she never treats in interviews like she was a mother until she gave birth. Nothing classy about that.

cruise control @ 11/13/2012 at 12:13 pm

say what you want about cruise, but it’s odd his wives can’t let go. he never throws out their names in interview to promote his career. especially this one…she’s got a great husband or let’s be honest a reformed druggie with a penchant for cheating. So she sees life with Tom was more exciting. the man never had control over her she was just ingrateful.

@kelly:

Why don’t people take the time to read the entire article before they judge based on web-site captions? She doesn’t say “motherhood” healed her.

“Having my baby has been a healing experience,” she says. “It took me so long to have a child. I feel enormous gratitude. Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me. It’s a very private thing, but she just has.”

Anyone who had tried so long and so unsuccessfully to have a child herself would have felt like that – grateful.

@Question screening:

Actually Nicole is one of the few A listers who does not give interviewers a list of topics they can’t discuss. When pushed she has said she doesn’t want to talk about “whatever” and lets go on to another topic.

@kelly:

Did you ever think it was painful for Nicole to lose Bella and Connor? The cult declared her a suppressive and Tom went right along with it.

Instead of criticizing Nicole taking the high road and not causing those kids untold grief with a custody battle, why not criticize Katie Holmes? Tom went out of his way to tell us all that Bella and Connor considered her mom. She basically dumped them when she dumped Tom. That is pretty cruel. And how about Tommy girl himself? He hasn’t seen his six year old daughter in over three months. I don’t care what excuse he gives, his lawyer gives, or his fans give–three months in a six year old’s life is huge. Kids change so quickly at that age. He has missed 25 percent of her life in a year’s span. Anti-fans like you constantly bring up Nicole not seeing Bella and Connor yet you give Tom and Katie a pass.

I think she’s ballsy for doing the interview without preconditions.

People want to know about her history with Tom, and she doesn’t avoid it. She just says “Hey, I was in love, I was happy and it was great, until it fell apart.”

Just that simple. I really respect her for that.

Tom and Nicole were great together, until they weren’t. Now she’s moved on and found happiness.

Good for her all the way around.

I like her and her family but she should remember that she has 2 older chidren, no matter if she didn’t give birth to them or now they live with their father. SHE IS the mother and natural children or adopted children are the same.

@danielle:
Wow, Nicole fans are so hypocritical. You defend Nicole for not being involved in Bella and Connor’s lives. You say that Tom kept them away from her, brainwashed them etc. And yet bash Katie for supposedly “dumping” them, as if she had a choice. I mean if Nicole who is their legal mother was pushed away. Do you honestly think that the kids who be allowed to maintain a relationship with Katie who is probably one of the biggest SP’s in the history of the church? And unlike Nicole, Katie has no legal right to the children.

I absolutely love Nicole and Keith together. It’s a perfect pairing of two talented and sweet people. Tom and Nicole were a nice couple but I think Nicole is much happier and more relaxed now that she’s with Keith. I’m sure Nicole is well aware of her 2 older children and speaks of them often but they had to be raised Scientologist so they were not allowed to see her much. It’s wonderful she was able to have a second family with Keith. He is an entirely new and better man since they’ve been married. She helped him through his addictions and he has a joyful life now with his 2 little girls. It’s nice to see a normal celeb marrage!

Beautiful picture of Nicole. Inside and out she seems a very nice person.
If they ask and she says nothing abt. Tom, then you throw that at her. If they ask and she trys to just stay professional, you throw that at her, and when she answers honestly ( and give always a nice thought abt. Tom) that is bad too. LOL

Have any of you ever heard of respect? She tries to be respectful of Tom BECAUSE OF HER CHILDREN.
What a concept. !
Too bad many of you can’t understand that word.

Give Keith and Nicole a break and take a look at a new life, a new love and a wonderful loving family. They should inspire you if that is something you need in your negative life or view of the world.

@DB:

Bravo. A sane poster!

What about Connor and Isabella? Since she divorced with Tom Cruise then she is not their mother anymore? How can anyone get divorced with one’s own children. It’s like she had never been connected to them never been their mother never says a word about them. Just cant get it…

What a stunning photo!!! Eyes Wide Shut is an excellent movie BTW.
