Nicole Kidman Says Cruise Divorce “Damaged” Her

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on February 2, 2011 0 Comments

Nicole Kidman, 43, reports, “I was really damaged” after the devastating split from Tom Cruise. It’s ancient history now, isn’t it? Apparently, not quite. Kidman is busy these days, what with the new baby and all, and sources say she and hubby Keith Urban are closer than ever. But she’s not too busy or too married to remember, as she told Marie Claire in an interview, and WonderWall quotes what the bad time was like.

“I was really damaged and not sure whether [love and marriage] was ever going to happen again to me.” After eleven years of marriage, that’s a frequent hazard.

Nicole Kidman was silent at the time—10 years ago—but now she is speaking out about what really happened. At least, a little bit.

“That was a great relationship,” she says of her time with Cruise. And she admits she made some sacrifices. “I was never seeking to be a celebrity. But I was prepared to do that for love…It’s hardFile:Nicole kidman3cropped.jpg when you’re young. But I’m ready to give up anything for love, because ultimately, that is what you have.”

The differences must be striking. Tom Cruise was the ultimate celebrity during their marriage. Urban, on the other hand, likes to spend his time on their property in Tennessee.

And what split her and Tom? “I think [the relationship] ran its course.”

Not much info there.

Now, she tells interviewers, she is “crazy in love.” Two tiny kids (this is not counting the two teenagers living with Tom, whom the two of them adopted) an Oscar nomination, and a whole new life. The only thing lacking is the two older children. They live with Tom and Katie. And Suri.

According to sources, Nicole did not tell them about the new baby until it arrived. Sounds like two more casualties of that damaging divorce.
