Nicole Kidman Recalls Media Frenzy Surrounding Marriage to Tom Cruise

by Megan Molseed

For decades, Hollywood star Nicole Kidman as long made her name one of the world’s most sought-after leading ladies. Both on film, and on a variety of television series such as Big Little Lies, and The Undoing.

Additionally, Nine Perfect Strangers star’s romantic life has been another source of interest for the star’s fans. Primarily because of the oscar-winning actress’s famous marriages. The first being her eleven-year union with actor Tom Cruise from 1990 until 2001.

And, says Kidman, one of the things that affected her most about this marriage to Tom Cruise, was the intense media frenzy that surrounded the romance from the beginning.

“I was young,” the star said recently about the romance.

“I think I offered it up? Maybe I’ve gotten a bit more trepidatious,” Kidman continued, adding that while her marriage to Cruise did lead her to be a little more closed-off once it ended, she tries hard to remain open to the world.

“I’m always trying to be as open as possible,” the actress explained. “I just prefer to live in the world that way.”

The fifty-four-year-old Moulin Rouge star and Cruise met while filming the iconic racing flick Days of Thunder.

Together, the former couple has two kids together, twenty-eight-year-old Bella and twenty-six-year-old Connor.

Nicole Kidman Keeps an Open Heart

Since then, Nicole Kidman has gone on to fall completely in love with her country star husband of fifteen years, Keith Urban. A relationship that the star says has helped her open up to what the world has to offer her and her family.

“I’m wary at times, and I’ve been hurt,” Nicole Kidman explained.“But at the same time, I much prefer a warm approach rather than a prickly shutdown approach.”

Kidman adds that this was something her husband, Keith Urban sensed in her early on.

“My husband, Keith, says that when he met me, he said, ‘How’s your heart?'” the actress explained “And I apparently responded, ‘Open.'”

One of our favorite Hollywood couples to follow these days is the “coupledom” between superstar Nicole Kidman and her husband since 2006, country music icon Keith Urban.

A Hollywood Love Story

The iconic and extremely elegant Hollywood power couple has a way of just making us feel happy.

The love the two have for each other is clear through the screen, and even on social media.

From the couple’s regular fun…and loving…Instagram posts, to their awe-inspiring red carpet moments, where both Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban shine as one of Hollywood’s most glamourous couples, the two seem to be the perfect pair.

Since their 2006 wedding, Kidman and the multiple award-winning country singer have welcomed two daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.

“We’re always working through stuff, but it’s very much love-based,” Kidman said of her family. “There’s an enormous amount of give and take.”

Kidman added that this give-and-take has been a big part of what has made their marriage work over the years.

“I want him to have the best life he can have, and he responds the same way,” the actress said. “We really love parenting together.”
