Nicole Kidman lands the December cover of Vanity Fair, and it has me wondering when this big Gwyneth Paltrow expose is coming! I can’t wait, VF! Hurry up already!
Anyway, Nicole lands the cover, and she’s obviously promoting her new movie ‘Grace of Monaco.’ The movie was originally supposed to be released this year, but apparently it’s been bumped to next year. It’s a bit early for Nicole to be promoting the movie, but maybe the issue was done before the movie got bumped?
In the interview, Nicole opens up about her marriage to Tom Cruise, and how the marriage made her a household name. I have LONG wondered about that marriage. She was married to him for SO LONG, she must know so much about Scientology. Wouldn’t you give anything for her to spill her secrets? I wonder why she hasn’t. Did Tom make her sign a confidentiality agreement? What’s the deal?
“I was so young,” Nicole Kidman tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kashner in the December-issue cover story, reflecting back on her marriage to Tom Cruise when she was just 23 years old. “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. 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, who was playing Virginia Woolf in The Hours at the time of her divorce from Cruise, recalls shooting Woolf’s suicide scene, walking into the River Ouse over and over again, as electric fans whipped up the river’s waves. “Walking into the river with those stones in my pockets—I chose life,” she says. “At the time, I was at a low point, and by playing her, it put me into a place of appreciating life.”
When asked about the unreal level of fame she endured during her marriage to Cruise, Kidman says, “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. 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 and Angelina have that—because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
There’s MUCH MORE after the jump! (more…)
