Over a decade since she divorced Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman is finally revealing the truth behind the split.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, the 46-year-old opened up about how she “was a child” when she married the actor at the tender age of 23, and how it was just a lot to handle at such a young age.
The actress added, “You know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now [Keith Urban]. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”
Kidman went on to compare her relationship with Tom to that of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s, referring to the life she lived with the actor as 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 told Vanity Fair. ”And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad [Pitt] and Angelina [Jolie] have that — because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
