Nicole Kidman is speaking out about her marriage of 11 years to Tom Cruise.
“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,” the 46-year-old said in a new interview with Vanity Fair of her relationship with Tom, which ended in 2001.
There are two others that Nicole thinks might be able to relate to her high-profile relationship.
“And there is only one other person that’s going through it,” she told the mag. “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.”
Looking back, Nicole said the big screen star was not her “great love.”
“With no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now,” she said of country star Keith Urban, who she married in 2006.
“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,” she explained. “I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married [to Tom]. And I needed to grow up.”
