Nicole Kidman Was 'Running' from Life After Tom Cruise Split

Nicole Kidman Was 'Running' from Life After Tom Cruise Split

Nicole Kidman is all smiles while heading into the Women in the World Summit held at Cadogan Hall on Friday (October 9) in London, England.

The 48-year-old actress opened up at the event about the years following her split from Tom Cruise in 2001, in which she got critical acclaim for her film work and an Oscar for her performance in The Hours.

“I was running from my life at that time,” Nicole said (via E! News). “I wasn’t able to handle the reality of my life and as an actor, you have this wonderful thing where you can go and get lost in somebody else’s life and become somebody else for a period of time. And when I look back on it, I really see that. Out of that came work that sort of was applauded and so that was an interesting thing for me.”

“I then sort of embraced my own life and I got myself together and it took me a number of years and during that time, I worked a lot,” she added. “The work was a great place for me to exist and then that culminated in winning an Oscar.”

Nicole also opened up about having an “epiphany” after the big win.

“I was sitting in the Beverly Hills Hotel and it was all extraordinary and I was the loneliest I’ve ever been,” Nicole concluded. “And that was a very strange thing to have happened and it was a fantastic thing to have happened because I was jolted out of this I suppose need or desire to say, ‘This is gonna heal me’ and it didn’t. And then I went, ‘I need to really hone in on what I want as a woman and for my life.’”

    Dear Lord, Cruise left her almost 15 years ago. It would be a better idea when asked anything about that marriage to simply laugh and answer ‘that’s past history’.

    She is amazing!!

  • Lacey Sheridan

    “Running from life?” Looked more like abandoning her kids to me. Every one of her sentences begins with ‘I;’ no wonder she wasn’t successful as a mother to Connor and Isabelle. It’s clear, too, why they opted to live with their father.

    The way i hear it, Isabella has never forgiven her mother for abandoning her, and, if true, she’s fully justified. I hope the new young couple are happy.

  • Lacey Sheridan

    She had a couple of miscarriages during her marriage to Cruise; one was an ectopic pregnancy.

    You should learn more about it and everything that surrounds them.

    In
    the same interview : At the Women In the World Summit, the actress was
    asked if there was any difference between mothering her daughters with
    Urban and mothering her son and daughter with Cruise.
    “There’s no
    difference, because you love…and the love is so profound and it’s once
    you have that child and you go, ‘Ah, I’m willing to die for this
    person,’” Kidman said. “And you see and you feel that, and that, that
    changes everything, doesn’t it?”
