Every big star wants to be on the cover of Vanity Fair – it’s the place to be for the Who’s Who of Hollywood.
But Vanity Fair has some high standards – if they put you on the cover, you better be ready to deliver some bombshells. Luckily, as the cover girl of the October issue, Nicole Kidman certainly didn’t disappoint.
While Nicole opens her blouse on the cover, it’s inside the pages where she truly gets revealing, telling the magazine she was engaged in between her marriages to Tom Cruise and Keith Urban.
So who was the lucky man?
“I couldn’t get it out of her,” Vanity Fair’s senior west coast editor Krista Smith told Access Hollywood.
Most notably, Nicole dated movie producer Steven Bing and rocker Lenny Kravitz during the five years between Tom and Keith.
In 2004, Kravitz was cryptic when Access asked him about his relationship with Nicole.
“We’re really great friends, you know, and um…have been and always will be. But you know, we keep the what, how and when and all that to ourselves,” a coy Kravitz said.
As for Keith, Nicole admitted to Vanity Fair it “wasn’t like the earth shook” when they first met.
For the magazine photo shoot, Nicole was happy and relaxed as she posed seaside in her native Australia. However, she revealed the past year was a difficult one.
Nicole stood by Keith’s side when he went to rehab, just four months after their wedding. However, Smith got the feeling quitting on the relationship was never an option.
“I don’t think it would ever occur to her to walk away from that,” Smith added.
Despite Nicole calling it a “very, very, very bad, painful place,” the couple is now in a much different place, as they prepare for a family.
“I’m yearning to have one,” Nicole told the magazine. “I think I would be very sad if I wasn’t able to have a baby.”
