Nicole Kidman: I thought I’d be married to Tom Cruise forever
She married Tom in 1990 and the couple were married for just under 10 years before Tom ended the relationship for undisclosed reasons. Nicole is rumoured to have been pregnant at the time and the stress of the split caused her to miscarry the baby.
She told Vogue recently: “Honestly, I would have stayed married for the rest of my life. It’s not like I regret who I was in that marriage, I don’t at all. It was eleven years of my life. It wasn’t 50 years, it turned out to be 11.
“You get the advice, ‘Don’t get married when you’re 22′, and you just think, ‘They don’t know what they’re talking about!’ But now I look back and think, ‘Oh, there’s probably some truth to that.’”
She also spoke on how she was surprised to fall in love with now-husband Keith Urban because she closed down emotionally after her divorce from Tom: “I was very wary, and damaged. It wasn’t that I’d give up hope, I was, just, asleep. But now I feel like I’ve woken up again. Rather than living through characters, I’ve learned to be myself.”
