Nicole Kidman Recalls the First Time She Met Tom Cruise: 'My Jaw Dropped'

Nicole Kidman is telling the story of when she first met her ex husband Tom Cruise – during her audition for 1990s Days of Thunder.

“I remember walking in, I remember being so nervous and seeing Tom Cruise drive up in a Porsche, I think it was,” Nicole recalled to People. “He got out of the car and walked through and I was like, ‘Ah.’ My jaw dropped. Then I had to go in and audition in front of Tony Scott. Sweet Tony. [Producers] Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer, Robert Towne and Tom. I was like, ‘No way, I’m not going to get this.’ They called that afternoon and I had the job.”

“I was just like, ‘Oh my god, Mom!’ Yeah, that was huge. Huge,” Nicole continued. “You know, obviously, changed my life extraordinarily. So grateful for the film, for everything that came with it. It was a big, important part of my life.”

Tom and Nicole married in 1990 and divorced in 2001.

    Every promotional she talks Tom Cruise and/or Keith Urban. How about talking about you.

    Why don’t she and Keith end the misery and get a divorce. She can then dash to England and resume her fantasy life. The timing is perfect. She’s midlife and Tom’s never been particularly interested in sex if rumors are correct. Keith can then find himself someone a little younger, less controlling and more fun.

    Tom was very cruel to her yet she keeps taking good about him. I don’t get it.
