Aussie star Nicole Kidman is now married to country singer Keith Urban.
Nicole Kidman who married Tom Cruise in 1990 revealed in an essay to New York Magazine’s latest issue on women and power how it felt exactaly marrying Mission Impossible star at the very young age of 22. For the very first time Nicole revealed inside details about her ex marriage to former husband Tom Cruise.
Nicole Kidman admitted that though she married Tom Cruise of course because she loved him, but it also provided her “protection” from sexual harassment in Hollywood.
“Being married to Tom Cruise at 22 is something I’m always reluctant to talk about, because I’m married now to the man who is my great love [Keith Urban], and it almost feels disrespectful,” the 51-year-old said.
“That said, I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”
As Kidman was married to Cruise who was already an established and powerful actor in Hollywood, she always felt safeguarded and protected while doing films. She continued, “I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of [the marriage] at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”
But it doesn’t mean Nicole Kidman don’t have own #MeToo stories.
“Of course I’ve had #MeToo moments – since I was little! But do I want to expose them in an article? No. Do they come out in my work? Absolutely,” she added.
