Nicole Kidman Reveals How Tom Cruise Broke Her Heart


Posted by Ericka Sóuter

dujour magazineIt's been over a decade since their divorce, but Nicole Kidman is still heartbroken over her divorce from Tom Cruise.

Yes, she's remarried to country crooner Keith Urban, with whom she has two beautiful daughters. But a new interview with DuJour magazine reveals the Aussie star may be still pining for her ex.

Though it's been over a decade since they were together, it's clear the memories of their romance are bittersweet. She first met Tom in 1989 after her arranged to meet her after seeing her performance in the thriller Dead Calm. Married a year later, "I was reeling with Tom," she told DuJour. "I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him...I was so impulsive and naive."

As the years past, she grew more enamoured with the star. "i was totally smitten -- I fell madly, passionately in love." With one of the most high profile marriages in Hollywood, they were constantly under the microscope. As Nicole tells it, it was them against the world. “We were in a bubble, just the two of us. We became very dependent on one another,” she said.

Then it all came to a shocking end. As the celebrated their 10 anniversary, "I thought our life together was perfect," she recalled. Then two months later, Tom left her. The only reason he gave for dumping her was a cryptic, "Nic knows why." She begged him to say, but Tom, it seemed, never looked back. "It took me a very long time to heal," she admitted. "It was a shock to my system."

After hearing so many rumors about Tom Cruise's many romances -- they are fake, arranged, contractual with and expiration date -- it's surprising to hear such an outpouring of emotion from Nicole. She seemed to be truly in love with the actor and absolutely devastated by his decision to leaver her. Well, what goes around comes around, as they say. Tom was reportedly equally blindsided when Katie Holmes took off. But my heart really goes out to Nicole. We have all been there.

Meeting Keith restored her faith in love. “My life changed. He is a wonderful, caring man and he makes me feel secure. We don’t ever like to be separated," she shared. Now married six years, "I'm happier than I've ever been in my life."

Are you surprised to learn Nicole was so in love with Tom?

    I feel badly for her. No one deserves to just be left with no explanation.

    I believe it. Celebrities fall madly in love the same as we mere mortals do.
