Nicole Kidman on Tom Cruise Marriage: Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Can Understand

Nicole Kidman on Tom Cruise Marriage: Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Can Understand

Nicole Kidman graces the cover of Vanity Fair‘s December 2013 issue!

Here’s what the 46-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her marriage to Tom Cruise becoming intoxicating: “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. 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.”

On the beginning of her marriage to Tom: “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 [to Cruise]. And I needed to grow up.”

On having a family:
“There’s an enormous amount you have to give up if you want to have a family. You can have a certain career, but you can’t be living in Hollywood, [where] absolutely everything, everything revolves around it. That wasn’t my choice. I’d rather revolve around somebody else’s career and then still find my own.”

Please why in every interview does she mention Tom Cruise. How long have they been divorced? It makes no sense..when a person keeps digging up past marriages and relationships. This woman is still using Cruise to get empathy. Or to make her more interesting in interviews.

she should start with her story saying, “long long long time ago,”

# 3

They ask her questions about Tom and she answers them. Simple as that.

@@LOL:

She can decline..many stars can do that. It’s not like she is being deposed in a court of law….she’s an A List star and it’s very strange. I almost get the impression she is NOT over Cruise..and that all eyes on her and Tom and that feeling of reigning in Hollywood is something she misses. Urban is a nice guy but it’s not like she’s walking arm and arm as a powerhouse A List actor. That commands the paps attention when they appear together.

I respect Nicole in this interview. She’s being very open and honest. I see her as a smart, savvy women. She now knows what she’s doing.

@LOL: sorry but she looks way happier with urban, she doesn’t need to be with an a-list hollywood actor for her to feel fulfilled. she took a chance and gave tom a fair and long try and he wasn’t her cup of tea and she never looked happy or relaxed around him, who can blame her anyways. now she’s a happy wife and mother of two, you can tell she’s in a much better place in her life. plus, urban is a-list in the country music world, he has millions just like she does, there’s nothing to complain about. if anything its a good thing to have a husband working in a different industry than you, even shakira said that herself because each of you have your space to do your own work, and your primary focus is geared towards your marriage and family life which is what matters the most. people like kim-k care about status, if nicole cared so much about status, she would’ve stayed with tom yet be miserable the whole time through. she knew it wasn’t worth it.

“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. ”

Love her! She’s classy and talented and funny and sweet. That’s why she’ll always be my favorite actress working today.

I think this woman is so smug. She better talks just about her husband and her family. She has enough talked about Tom Cruise in the past. I dearly don´t like him but he deserves peace from her already. She seems to be even worse than him and now I´m sure she damaged their marriage and not him. She better opens up about her sick botox addiction.

@#6: maybe she is, maybe she isn’t, who knows? There are all happy until there aren’t anymore and then you get the divorce announcement..don’t be too surprise when it happens; it almost always does…

JJ has really done a hatchet job this time. They’ve taken an article where Nicole has said she was very young when she married Tom Cruise and they lived an exciting life (it’s the same thing she said to another reporter a few years back verbatim). She further stated that when she married Keith, she found her great love. That’s it, just another misleading article.

yeah right @ 10/29/2013 at 1:23 pm

@guest: Go back to your cuckoo board skeptic. “Guest”? Bahahahaha!

egotistical @ 10/29/2013 at 1:24 pm

It´s like Tom Cruise is her favourite theme to talk about, I wonder how long her husband will tolerate that and not just bc is getting boring for us but not for her I guess. He should start talking about his ex- girlfriends too.
I rather would like to know how she thinks to continue her acting career with that damaged face??

Tom is a controller. Nicole is free and happy with Keith. It is a lovely cover shot.

At that time, didn’t she get preg with Ewan McGregor’s baby and that was the main cause of their divorce?

my point is no one talks about their ex husband, ex anything bf /gf continuously unless there is still a spark left for that person.The greatest love of her life sounds like a movie cliche and way too much effort into trying to convince “the media and public” she loves Keith more…if she loves Keith why keep dredging up your ex? because by mentioning Cruise’s name it attracts interest in people tuning into her. If she just said nothing about Cruise, this thread would be 5 comments only. Because she’s dull.

@Rouge: That was the story and I’m inclined to believe it but apparently Nicole was able to “prove” that Tom was the father of the baby she miscarried.

@CF98: LOL. I’m glad. At least there are things some people never forget.

She never brings up Tom @ 10/29/2013 at 2:11 pm

No as long as she has Interviews she will have the whole thing aBout
Tom . Just like Ben and Jlo.. To this day Nicole is sacrificed to answering questions about Tom . if not she is considered to be rude and
Other bad words..why not ask her about Keith Urban her HUSBAND NOW! How their marriage is? And her children with Keith, how she
Likes living in Nashville….

yeah right @ 10/29/2013 at 2:17 pm

@egotistical: @LOL No comments about Cruise would make this a skeptic-free thread? You’re so stupid to try to pull that one out of your a$$.

yeah right @ 10/29/2013 at 2:20 pm

@Rouge: She was never pregnant with Ewan’s baby but you and your other names go on thinking that it did while you also think she’s a lesbian and a child predator.

There she goes discussing Tom again. She is still riding that PR marriage. Why doesn’t she discuss her children from that marriage? This picture is photoshopped from head to toe. Lives in Nashville? When?

@@LOL:

So true! They cut and paste where the story will be most interesting. I worked for a magazine and let me tell you, the crap they invent is something else!!

@dan:

Another good post. Thanks. LOVE NICKY!!

@dan: You seemed to have forgotten that Tom filed for divorce. She didn’t want out of the marriage as she renewed her wedding vows a month prior to Tom filing. Nic know.

@CF98:

This “pregnancy” was invention was the divorce agreement, Nicole make more $ $ $ $ $ $ if it was along the lie. Cruise, Kidman, Holmes, Cruz, are opportunists who only think in career and fame. Innocent, only the children. The adoptive were rejected by three mothers: biological, adoptive and step-mother. How sad.
