Nicole Kidman Talks About Her Kids With Tom Cruise, Quitting Career For Family

May 29, 2014 12:30 PM


We can't believe she acknowledged them!

Nicole Kidman is busy promoting her film Grace of Monaco, and the actress gave an usually candid interview to Women's Weekly where she discussed her children Connor and Isabella with ex Tom Cruise, as well as how family has changed her career aspirations.

"They are generous, kind and hard working. And these are the traits that I love to see in my children," she told the mag.

The former couple adopted the two children in 1990, but after the A-list pair split in 2001, both son and daughter opted to live with their action star father in Los Angeles. The Australian beauty went on to marry Keith Urban, have two biological daughters, and move to Tennessee.

The mother-of-four would give it all up in a second for her home life, too!

    "If it were the choice between my family and Keith, and my career, I wouldn’t even bat an eyelid. The most important things to me are the love of our relationship and my children. At this stage of my life, and with time being so precious, the joy I get from us as a family outweighs any joy in any other area of my life, by far," she gushed.

This is the least icy we've heard her sound in a while!

Nicole Kidman's Frozen Face Takes Center Stage At Cannes Film Festival

Freeze! ... Nicole, you can unfreeze now! Nicole?! Uh oh -- we think she's stuck that way!

Nicole Kidman's frozen face is drawing more attention at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival than the controversy surrounding her film Grace of Monaco. Maybe it's a good thing people are talking about the 46-year-old's creepy countenance and attention is being diverted from this tanker of a movie!

Hey remember when Nicole Kidman's face actually moved? Yeah, we barely do either.

The film tells the tale of Grace Kelly, the legendary film actress who eventually became Princess of Monaco after marrying Prince Rainier III in 1956. Interestingly enough, the duo met at the Cannes film festival the year prior.

Grace of Monaco has been universally panned by the press after opening the Cannes Film Festival today. “I’m neither a biographer nor a historian,” defended the film's director, Olivier Dahan. “It’s never been a biopic in my mind from the very beginning.”

Well whatever it is -- the people aren't liking it.

Monaco's Royal Family is also not pleased with the film, none of the royals journeyed the short distance the 34-mile trip from Monaco to Cannes for the premiere. In addition to the royal controversy, the film's producer Harvey Weinstein publicly taken issue with Dahan over the final cut.

Despite the film being critically slammed, the Aussie, who wore a white dress and held her head high, joined Tim Roth and her Grace of Monaco co-stars for the movie's photocall during the French film fest. In true Hollywood form, the stars appeared to be unshaken by the criticism, smiling and looking as happy as can be while photogs took their pics.

Umm now can we talk about Nicole's face again?

Nicole Kidman Has Her Hands Full WIth Mom Duty As She Jets Out Of LAX With Her Two Daughters

The families that travel together -- stay together!

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban jetted out of LAX with their little girls in tow on Wednesday. And it certainly looks like the on-the-go mom has her hands full!

All eyes were on the Aussie duo as they traveled through the airport with daughters Sunday Rose, 6, and Faith Margaret, 3, by their side, as the family was most likely en route to their home in Nashville.

Outfitted in a leopard-print coat, jeans, and black boots, Sunday Rose is shaping up to be as stylish as her head-turning mama!

Nicole had been in town to attend the funeral of L'Wren Scott, and also make promotional appearances for her latest film, The Railway Man.

It was during one of these appearances that Nicole ignited some controversy. During her stop at Jimmy Kimmel Live, Nicole inadvertently snubbed her adopted daughter, Isabella, from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise.

When asked about her family, The Railway Man said, "My oldest daughter is interested in acting and my youngest daughter is interested in music."

She hit the point home several times during the interview, as she continually referred to Sunday Rose as her "oldest daughter."

"My oldest daughter says 'I so don't want to go and watch daddy play,'" said Nicole when explaining what Sunday thinks of her dad's country music career.


Tom and Nicole adopted two children together, Isabella, now 21-years-old, and Connor, now 19. Rumors of a rift between Nicole and the children have swirled for years. In 2012, Vanity Fair magazine claimed tension was a result of Bella and Connor's allegiance to the Church of Scientology.

Despite the controversy, Connor recently told Woman's Day last month that he has a "solid" relationship with her mother.

"I don’t care what people say. I know that me and mum are solid. I love her a lot. My family means everything," he said.

In 2012, Isabella told New Idea magazine that despite reports to the contrary she is close with actress.

"I love mom. She's my mom. She's great. I see her sometimes and I speak to her," she said.

Hmm ... doesn't sound like that to us!

Connor Cruise Says Relationship With Mom Nicole Kidman Is "Solid"

Mar 17, 2014 10:55 AM


That clears it up!

It has long been speculated that Nicole Kidman became estranged from adopted children Connor and Isabella after her divorce from their father Tom Cruise, but the actress' son put those rumors to rest recently in a magazine interview.

"I love my mum," the aspiring DJ told Woman's Day Australia before adding, "I don't care what people say, I know that me and Mum are solid."

According to the 19-year-old, his feelings for his mother have never wavered.

"I love her a lot. My family means everything. Yeah, I love my music, but the family comes before everything else," he explained.

The A-list actress previously divulged her regret that Connor and Isabella chose not to reside with her in Nashville, and it seems her relocation to Tennessee was one of the contributing factors to the abandonment rumors in the first place.

"Isabella does still speak to Nicole, as does Connor, just not as much as they used to when they were younger and Tom and Nicole were together. Nicole is far away and doesn't visit L.A. often so there's naturally going to be that distance," a source told Us Weekly back in 2012.

We're happy to hear this!

Nicole Kidman On Her Marriage To Tom Cruise: We Were Like Brangelina, But He Was Not My "Great Love"

Oct 29, 2013 08:30 AM


Nicole Kidman covers the December issue of Vanity Fair, and the 46-year-old actress compares her marriage to Tom Cruise to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's highly-publicized relationship.

Kidman tells the mag:

    "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."

Kidman and Cruise got married in 1990 when she was just 23, and they split in 2001. Despite the fact that they made it work for over a decade, Kidman confesses that she was "so young," and added, "with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I've met my great love now," referencing Keith Urban, whom 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. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married [to Cruise]. And I needed to grow up."

Following her split from Cruise, Kidman says she was able to relate to suicidal author Virginia Woolf, whom she played in The Hours. "At the time, I was at a low point, and by playing her, it put me into a place of appreciating life," she said.

Kidman and Urban now live in Tennessee with their daughters Sunday and Faith, and she says life is now "very, very peaceful," adding, "There’s an enormous amount you have to give up if you want to have a family. You can have a certain career, but you can’t be living in Hollywood, [where] absolutely everything, everything revolves around it," she reveals. "That wasn’t my choice. I’d rather revolve around somebody else’s career and then still find my own."

Nicole Kidman Knocked To The Ground By Photographer On A Bike, Actress Pressing Charges

Sep 12, 2013 02:40 PM


Poor Nic!

Nicole Kidman was knocked down by a photographer on a bike just moments after leaving the Calvin Klein fashion show in N.Y.C. today.

The photographer, Carl Wu, was aggressively biking toward the actress and attempted to slam on the breaks when he got too close, but didn't stop in time and collided with the Australian beauty.

Needless to say, Mrs. Keith Urban was pissed!

In fact, the Paperboy star plans on pressing charges against Wu, who is notorious in the celebrity world for being overly invasive and reckless. The mother-of-two is said to be OK with no major injuries from the incident, but she still called the cops.

He better hope Tom Cruise's ex finds it in her heart to forgive, or else this could be a pricey mistake!
