Nicole Kidman on Tom Cruise vs Husband Keith Urban: “I’ve Met My Great Love Now”


Nicole Kidman is on the cover of Vanity Fair and gives them a great interview. The big pull quote: “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.”

No disrespect, but that’s Nicole: honest and forthright. Good for her. She and Keith Urban seem like an exceptionally happy couple to me, proud parents of two beautiful little girls. Urban is one of the good guys, as normal as a rock star can be, and incredibly talented. She tells writer Sam Kashner: “My husband and I are in uncharted territory because we’re trying to find artistic expression but also we’re incredibly connected as a family—we’re very, very tight, very, very close, and I have a very, very primal protection of my family.”

The Vanity Fair interview was timed to the release of “Grace of Monaco.” The movie has since been moved to 2014. These things happen. But frankly, Nicole for any reason is welcome!
