Nicole Kidman covers Australia’s WHO Magazine for its 20th anniversary issue. Inside the magazine, Kidman, 45, says she never got to throw a proto-Katie Holmes divorce party upon the collapse of her marriage to Tom Cruise in which she says she got involved ‘really fast and really young.’ Which makes it sound like his religious escort service picked too young an age band from the dropdown menu when weeding out second wives back in the 1990s. Her interview is below.
- On whether she spoke to Katie Holmes after the recent Tom Cruise divorce filing: ‘I never spoke to her. I wish all of them well, but I was not involved in any of that.’
- On being married to Tom Cruise: ‘I got married really fast and really young. But I don’t regret that because it got me Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period… Then when it didn’t work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression. I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up.’
- On her emotional collapse after the divorce: ‘There were times following [the divorce] when I thought, ‘Wow, this is the loneliest, loneliest existence,’ But with Tom, it was a fantastic decade. I wish all of the people that have been involved in my life well, because it’s very important to me to be in a place of forgiveness and love.’
- On her children: ‘I’m amazed that I have been a mother for so much of my life now. It’s odd, but because of them I don’t feel 45. All my kids are highlights of my life. They are all of my biggest joys.’
- On her family now: ‘I had so much time thinking [babies weren't] going to happen in my life and trying to understand that. When it did happen, and for it to be a surprise, that was great. I had tried and failed and failed and failed. Not to be too detailed, but I’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages and I’ve had fertility treatments. I’ve done all the stuff you can possibly do to try to get pregnant. Every woman who has been through all those ups and downs knows the depression that comes with it. So the way it just happened with Sunday was like, ‘What?’ The percentages were so low. It is the miracle in my life.’
