In the December issue of Vogue, Nicole Kidman lets fans know about her up and down love life.
It’s one that’s included a nut case and a drunk – not that we don’t wish the best for them both. Let’s listen in to this beautiful actress …
On marrying young:
“You get the advice ‘Don’t get married when you’re 22,’ and you just think, They don’t know what they’re talking about! But now I look back and think, Oh, there’s probably some truth to that.”
“Not giving up who you are, I think that’s the big lesson.”
On her marriage to Tom Cruise:
“Honestly, I would have stayed married for the rest of my life. It’s not like I regret who I was in that marriage; I don’t at all. It was eleven years of my life. It wasn’t 50 years; it turned out to be 11.”
On meeting Keith Urban:
“I was very wary, and damaged…It wasn’t that I’d give up hope, I was just…asleep. But now I feel like I’ve woken up again. Rather than living through characters, I’ve learned to be myself.”
On life with her husband:
“We spend an enormous amount of time together, and we’re determined to do that. I’ve spent too much time away from my family, and I just have no desire to live like that.”
On settling in Nashville, TN:
“This is my home now. This is the most time I’ve spent anywhere in years. I wanted to be earthed, and I didn’t feel earthed for so long, maybe not since I was a child…I don’t feel like I’m floating around, which is how it had been for many years, probably because I wasn’t that happy.”
On having more children:
“I’d like to be a mother again. I always thought I’d eventually live on a Fijian island. I love the idea of being in a sarong, with hair down to my bum and kids following my around and hanging out.”
That sounds nice. Or as weird as Cruise’s new wife, Katie Holmes. Either way, Kidman is tall and talented.
