Nicole Kidman Reveals She Was Once Engaged to Lenny Kravitz
Here’s what the Big Little Lies star had to share with the mag:
On once being engaged to Lenny Kravitz and then working with Zoe on Big Little Lies: “Well, I knew Zoe because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family! I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.” FYI: Lenny and Nicole dated in the early 2000s after her divorce from Tom Cruise. She never revealed, until now, that they had been engaged.
On being raised a feminist: “My mother was part of the Women’s Electoral Lobby and she would take me to hand out pamphlets when there was voting on behalf of feminism. That’s how I was raised; we would sit in the back rooms of the WEL while they were all talking. I remember sitting there listening, sort of not understanding but understanding that there was a movement happening, that as women we were powerful together, that we needed to have equality. I was teased at school for my mum being a feminist. I just said, ‘OK, it doesn’t matter. I’ll stand up for what I believe in.’”
On not playing it safe with fashion: “I have no problem being divisive [with fashion].” [Talking about the sequined Gucci dress, adorned with a parrot on each shoulder, that she wore to the Screen Actors Guild Awards] “My eight-year-old daughter [Sunday Rose] said, ‘You’re wearing that?’ My six-year-old [Faith Margaret] was like, ‘What’s that on your shoulder?!’”
