Nicole Kidman: Tom and I “Lived in a Romantic Bubble”
Nicole Kidman has opened up about her marriage to Tom Cruise, describing their intense relationship as “deeply romantic.”
Kidman, 46, revealed that being an A-list celebrity caused her and Cruise, 51, to feel like they were living in a “bubble.”
“There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you,” she tells Vanity Fair’s December issue.
“And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic.”
The Oscar-winning actress admits that not many people can understand the intensity of their 10-year marriage.
“I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that, because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
The Aussie actress was quick to point out that she’s much happier now with husband Keith Urban, 46. The couple have been married since 2006.
“With no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another … I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up,” she admits, alluding to the fact she married the Hollywood star when she was only 23.
Kidman might be busier than ever – she’ll next be seen on the big screen as Princess Grace of Monaco – but she loves living in Nashville with Urban and their two daughters, Sunday, five, and Faith, two, as she says, “because I can kind of have a very odd, idiosyncratic kind of path.”
