Nicole Kidman Talks About Her Broken Marriage with Tom Cruise
Hollywood star Nicole Kidman talked about how good her marriage was with the famous actor and how it left her damaged when it ended.
Kidman, 43, made the revelations to the March 2011 issue of Marie Claire UK.
“I was really damaged and not sure whether that was ever going to happen again to me,” she said with regards to their highly publicized separation.
Their marriage lasted from 1990 to 2001 with irreconcilable differences cited as reason for the split. Other reasons for the dissolution of the marriage were never made public.
However, the Academy Award winning actress has good words for the marriage. “That was a great relationship. I think it ran its course.”
She also said that becoming a superstar was something she did not want but learned to accept. “I was never seeking to be a celebrity. But I was prepared to do that for love. And that is something that is hard to do,” she said. “It’s hard when you’re young. But I’m ready to give up anything for love, because ultimately, that is what you have.”
Cruise and Kidman have two adopted children, Isabella Jane, 18, and Connor Anthony, 15. Kidman has two daughters with current husband Keith Urban while Cruise has a daughter with wife Katie Holmes.
