Nicole Kidman Doesn't Regret Marrying Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman Doesn't Regret Marrying Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman is opening up about her first marriage to Tom Cruise and why she doesn’t regret anything about it.

“Any time you have a chance at something again is good, but each combination of people is different,” the 48-year-old Oscar-winning actress told the Evening Standard. “I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don’t regret any of it. But out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss any of that now.”

“Be the best you can be, not the worst, and think of the children,” Nicole added, about what she learned from the marriage.

    In the original interview she said “out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss any of that now” then she proceeds to says “But I don’t regret that because it got me Bella and Connor, and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period.”. So she DOES discuss her previous marriage, and even calls it fantastic. hmm. I think she still loves Tom

    I’ve never been a big fan of Jennifer Aniston; however, she’s head and shoulders over Kidman in my book now because she doesn’t go on and on about Brad Pitt. For Kidman to say ‘Out of respect for Keith’ is a joke considering all of the sighing and reminiscing she constantly does over her first marriage. The only thing that’s probably keeping him from divorcing her are their two little girls. BTW, Faith didn’t even know who her mother was when Nicole was frolicking on the set of ‘Paperboy’ while also desperately trying to get Weinstein to fund ‘Grace of Monaco’. Nicole never flew to the states to see the girls, and for them to see their mother, Keith flew them wherever she happened to be. I’m plain disgusted with Nicole, and I used to be a fan.

    have you ever considered the possibility that she was asked a question about her marriage to Tom?

  • Reality Bites

    Would you love someone still after being blind sighted by a divorce when you had finally after years of trying become pregnant by him. Would you love someone who left you at the hospital while miscarrying to date his co star, Penelope. Who continuously threw you under the bus during the divorce and then turned your kids against you using his cult religion? I think she is being respectful for their douche father.. to a point.

    First of all, he did not leave her at hospital while miscarrying. I need a sources on that story. Second thing is that the interview says ” and still speaks of him with affection.”, if she is just being respectful, she can just stop at “I don’t regret the marriage because it got me Conner and Bella” why say the marriage was fantastic? Plus love is very complicated, so you can still have feelings for someone who hurt you. Tom was brainwashed by the cult to leave her, but before that they did have a happy marriage.

    I don’t think Nicole still loves Tom; but I do think she is terrified of getting older, and tries to stay young by reliving her 20′s. She’s turning into Norma Desmond.

  • Joy

    My God, did you even READ that 18 PARAGRAPH article from the ‘Evening Standard’? We certainly did not read or even see the same things, as there were only three short statements from Nicole basically blowing off the questions about her first marriage. SHE did NOT bring it up, the interviewer did. If she didn’t respond, she would be called ‘rude’ and demonized for that, too, no doubt!

    “Were there things she learned from her first marriage that she did differently in her second? ‘Any time you have a chance at something again is good, but each combination of people is different,’ she says. ‘I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don’t regret any of it. But out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss any of that now…’

    She has maintained a dignified silence over her split from Cruise and his influence on their adopted children — particularly the part played by his belief in Scientology — and still speaks of him with affection. ‘Be the best you can be, not the worst, and think of the children,’ she says.”

    She was polite and responded that way to the inquiry, which is a whole lot more than the silly ‘interpretations’ of gossip mongers do on here! Why would she berate Tom? She’s not that kind of person, but you witches would never believe the TRUTH about her, for sure! She mentions her pride in her older children but she did NOT “discuss her marriage,” NOR did she call it “fantastic”! Would you prefer that she respond “with hatred” instead of “affection” towards her first marriage? Probably you would, since you people don’t comprehend what kind of positive person that Nicole is! Not only do you people believe the tabloid, rag-mag crap, you fabricate your own!!

    As for Faith “not recognizing” her mother while she was filming ‘The Paperboy’, it was filmed during the summer of 2011 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Nicole FLEW HOME to Nashville as soon as her scenes were filmed, as she and Keith both told all about that at the time. They shot the film in a few weeks, not many months. Faith would’ve been ONE to TWO years old, and it’s very doubtful that Nicole was in full costume with her children! Did you find that “fact” in the ‘National Enquirer’ or ‘OK’- the infamous TABLOIDS?! Perhaps even on here, no doubt!

    As for ‘Grace of Monaco’- the “girls” were WITH Nicole in Monaco, and with sporadic filming schedules, actors don’t just “leave” their sets to ‘fly home’! KEITH has made the choice to fly back and forth, and he takes the girls on tour when he can, too. They family lives a gypsy life, as they have chosen to do- like ALL actors and musicians do who keep the FAMILY together. Get over it- it’s THEIR family, and their girls are seeing the world, learning new languages and cultures, and living with loving parents. As for the “funding,” it was Harvey Weinstein who wanted that film, and he planned to put it into Oscar contention. Too bad he and the French director couldn’t ‘speak the same language’ about anything, and it all fell apart. Like KEITH said, “Nicole was not the director, the writer, or the editor. She played her role as she was directed to do!”

    And please, people- Nicole is 48 years old–NOT 68, 78, or 88. She is aging beautifully, and I can say that from knowing her and seeing her up-close-and-personal many, many times. She protects her skin as a natural redhead, and her wrinkles DO ‘show’, just like anyone else’s. She does not ‘frown’ all the time, as you people must do, so her “forehead” does not show wrinkles when she smiles- but they are there! Why not pick on someone like Sandra Bullock who is 51 and has OBVIOUSLY changed her wrinkles and facial looks? Geez- is your jealousy of beautiful women ruining your personalities totally?

    If you want to read the TRUTH about what Keith REALLY FEELS about Nicole, try WATCHING or even reading his speech at the Country Music Hall of Fame Reception for his ‘So Far’ Exhibit on Dec. 2nd! Here’s the video, for those who even doubt what’s TRUTHFULLY written about Keith!

    “He did not get clean until 2006, shortly after he wed Nicole, who arranged an intervention and a rehab stint at the Betty Ford Center.

    ‘In so many ways, it was the most powerful act of love in reaching into the fire and pulling me out, because she believed in me, and she saw something in me in such a way that she risked everything, everything, to trust me and pull me out of the fire, and let me then do the right thing and move into the light,” he said of Nicole. “I didn’t know s**t about it until I met my wife. I didn’t know anything about love. I didn’t know anything about marriage. I didn’t know anything about self sacrifice. I didn’t know anything about taking care of a woman. Nothing. I took hostages. I didn’t have relationships. I took hostages.

    ‘Nicole, God bless you for coming in and seeing something in me, that I may never have seen, but certainly if I ever had, I had long lost sight of that person. And you saw that and you gave me a chance, and I thank you enormously for that.’”

    Keith concluded, “There’s a great Hemingway quote that says, ‘The world breaks everyone, and afterwards some are strong at the broken place,’ and I feel that that is what my wife brought to me. I’m strong in the broken places, because she saw something in me, and I love you for that.”

    Even though a week has passed since these messages were posted, would like to add something. Would the members of Nicole’s fan club please explain why Nicole couldn’t leave her latest filming to at least accompany Keith to Australia for his dad’s funeral. It sure makes her remarks about how much she loves Keith sound pretty shallow.

    You seem to be having a problem wit Nicole Kidman lately. Why don’t you try thinking about something else, Nicole and Keith will be just fine without your nasty opinions.

    You are such a mind reader. Get a life of your own and then you won’t have to worry about Nicole.

  • 1MzLiz

    I’ve had a lovely day, starting with church, and then luncheon with friends. My presents are wrapped and I’m pretty happy. I don’t worry about Nicole; however, I’m disappointed. I’ll even go further; I’ve not seen a smile on Sunday’s face since before Faith was born.

  • Joy

    Good GRIEF- do YOU stalk the family now, too?! You ARE as bad as ’27′- finding all the fault you can with Nicole! And to pull the children into your comments now is totally reprehensible! First of all, the photos that are on this and other gossip sites are all from any ‘public sighting’ possible, usually the airports when the kids are involved, but even from neighborhood birthday party locations! These gossip sites purposely post negative photos to draw the ire and attacks of people like you!

    Those are YOUNG CHILDREN who don’t comprehend the ‘attacks’ by paparazzi, and they’re frightened! The Urban children appear like the Pitt children, stunned by the flashing lights! Sunday and Faith both grab onto their parents in fear! In spite of that, Sunday OFTEN smiles now and moves through the chaos of black cameras snapping away! GEEZ! You’re not just rude with your comments, you’re MEAN!

    MANY photos exist of BOTH Urban children, albeit from photog’s long-lenses when they’re playing in public, and they’re giggling and laughing like any other kids! The Urbans travel extensively with their careers and take their children constantly with them. Young children should NOT be photographed at ALL! It’s illegal in most countries! Thankfully, LAX has provided a ‘private’ area for celebrities now, away from the masses of cameras propped up at the exits- so you and your like won’t be able to view frightened children being tormented by nasty paparazzi!

    You don’t know why she didn’t go, I don’t know why she didn’t go, it’s none of our business.

  • Eugene

    You are finally showing your true, ugly colors. What a nasty person you are,1MzLiz…
    Why are you so hateful and spiteful? Saying things like “The only thing that’s probably keeping him from divorcing her are their two little girls” or “Faith didn’t even know who her mother was” about people you don’t even know personally is utterly disgusting. You sound like a massive whackjob.

  • Eugene

    Don’t start using the kids to bash Nicole. Sicko.

    You are insane 1MzLiz. Get help.

  • 1urbanfan27

    DO NOT bring my name up in a conversation I haven’t contributed to…YOU are an apologist…But don’t bother…Some people don’t buy your stories…Because they know what they know…

  • 1urbanfan27

    lol…Looks like you and your multiple usernames is the one who needs help…

    And NEVER tell ME what I can and cannot say, #STUPIDGIRL! You’ve labeled yourself perfectly on Twitter, since you post hourly and more on Keith’s Twitter feed, denigrating him constantly! At least I don’t spread twisted stories, LIES, innuendos, and nasty implications about him and his marriage like YOU do! No one can read anything about Keith and his career or family without your TRASH blasting him on there. YOU are an EVIL, NASTY, lying backstabber of someone you ‘call’ a “friend”! What a JOKE you are!

    And don’t go crying about your “14th Amendment rights,” either! Those 1868 amendments were written to protect members of “groups” of religions, world-wide ethnicities, nationalities, slavery issues for “equal protection under the law”! They have NOTHING to do with members of PRIVATE fan clubs or even public GOSSIP sites! What a JOKE you are!

    And you saying that you “met” Keith in October 2003 is a joke, too. MILLIONS of women have “met” him in fanclub Meet & Greets. Many even go to where his buses are parked, too- though others don’t PRETEND that HE “followed” them there because he returned from a motorcycle ride to his own buses! Many see, take selfies, and even TALK to him in public, but so what? Those thousands, maybe millions, have enough SENSE to RESPECT and recognize his marriage and his family. Your disgusting tweets cause people to make fun of you daily, yet you think that ‘blocking’ them will make THEM go away. You seem to think that because you ‘saw’ him at a show, on a Red Carpet, or an event in Nashville that you have a “relationship” with him. What a JOKE you are, and a pathetic STALKER for 11 years!

    When someone posts a viewing of Keith & Nicole or pics of them in public, you INSULT both Keith and his marriage. In the words of Dr. Phil for another stalker just like YOU… “what are you, 12?!”
