Nicole Kidman is one of the world’s most beloved and successful actors today. From her early roles in classic films such as To Die For, she has starred in some of the biggest productions in modern history, such as Moulin Rouge and The Hours.
The Oscar winner is also known for her high-profile marriage and divorce from Tom Cruise, which caused a huge public outcry.
Nicole Kidman was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on June 20, 1967.
Starting in 1989, she starred in the Hollywood movie “Dead Rest,” which put her firmly on the map of American show business, but it was in 1991, that Nicole Kidman got roles that got her noticed in the Australian film industry and around the world.
At this time, Kidman was noticed in both the Australian and Hollywood film industries, and movie executives and producers worldwide quickly fell in love with her.
However, one of them hugely fell for her – and she fell head over heels in love with him.
He was, of course, Tom Cruise.
And so the world rejoiced when the happy couple wed in December 1991, when Kidman was 23 years old and Cruise was 28.
And shortly after the wedding, they had two children – daughter Isabella and son Connor.
For over a decade, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were the kings and queens of Hollywood royalty.
However, in 2001, they announced they were divorcing after more than ten years of marriage.
During their 10+ year marriage, tabloids and fans always enjoyed teasing about how much Kidman was taller than her husband.
And while Kidman remained respectful of her divorce, it was clear that she was living her best life without Cruise.
She kept it quiet for a while that she was dating Australian country singer Keith Urban, and the world was thrilled when she announced their engagement in 2006.
And in 2008, she and Keith Urban had their firstborn child, daughter Sunday Rose.
Through a surrogate, Kidman and Urban had their second daughter in 2010, who was named Faith Margaret.
Undoubtedly, Nicole Kidman has had one of the most successful and enduring careers in Hollywood history. She is adored worldwide for her talent and skill as an actress but also for her openness and dignified demeanor – she willingly shares her feelings but never speaks ill of others.
