Nicole Kidman is opening up about her divorce from Tom Cruise saying that she was blindsided by their split. She said that she felt their life together was perfect and that she was devastated when they went their separate ways.
The duo tied the knot in 1990, but were divorced in 2001 after adopting two children together. Nicole said that she didn’t see the divorce coming and was completely in love with Tom.
In a new interview with “DuJour” magazine, she said, “I was totally smitten. I fell madly, passionately in love. I was reeling with Tom. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him. We were in a bubble, just the two of us. We became very dependent on one another. Our life together was perfect. It took me a very long time to heal. It was a shock to my system.”
She went on to say, “I realized I didn’t want to be alone. I wanted to fall in love again, but I wasn’t sure I could.”
Since her divorce from Tom, she married country singer Keith Urban in 2006. Now she says, “My life changed. He is a wonderful, caring man and he makes me feel secure. We don’t ever like to be separated.”
