Theirs was a bitter divorce, but Nicole Kidman now looks back on her marriage to Tom Cruise and says it was ‘beautiful.’
Nicole says she and the superstar first fell in love on set, after she landed the role in action flick Days Of Thunder. The experience, she says, ‘changed my life dramatically.’
‘My jaw dropped,’ she says of their first meeting during her audition in 1990. Months later, they’d tied the knot.
‘A beautiful marriage came out of it and two beautiful children.. and the rest is history,’ she told journalist Jess Cagle.
“I was so young and I look back now, and I’m like, ‘what’’ she exclaims. “I had two kids by the time I was 27 and I’d been married for four years. But that’s what I wanted.’
The marriage lasted ten years, with adopted children Isabella and Connor becoming devout Scientologists like Tom and opting to live with him after the divorce. Nicole went on to marry Keith Urban in 2006, later having her two biological children, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.
