Nicole Kidman: ‘Tom Cruise was never my true love’

Nicole Kidman: ‘Tom Cruise was never my true love’

We can’t imagine life with Tom Cruise is much fun. “I’m hungry!” he shouts, bouncing on the sofa. “I want to buy this spice rack out of the Lakeland catalogue!” he says, while jumping on it. Basically he communicates by jumping up and down on things. Lord help you if he starts hopping in place on the end of your bed.

Anyway, in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Tom Cruise’s second wife Nicole Kidman has admitted that she was never truly, truly in love with the tiny sofa hopper – and said only Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are in a position to understand their Hollywood marriage.

Young love. Not 'great love', but. Good.
 

“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,” she added. “Because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”

And the Australian actress also revealed Tom was not her ‘great love’ – saving that honour for country singer Keith Urban.

“With no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now,” she said, dusting shoe prints off of the cat. “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,” she added. “Which was really, really good – because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.” [INSERT GAG ABOUT TOM CRUISE BEING ‘SHORT’ AND ALSO NEEDING TO LITERALLY ‘GROW UP’ BECAUSE HE IS ‘SHORT’]

Poor old Tom. His next wife Katie Holmes towered over him too.

In fairness Sophie Dahl was a supermodel, so her little fella Jamie Cullum knew what he was getting into...

Even with the extra inches from his blow dry, Rod Stewart is still a fair bit shorter than wife Penny Lancaster.

Brigitte Nielsen is much taller than her husband Mattia Dessi. But we're guessing that's the least of his worries...

Tiny herself, it would have been almost impossible for Rhea Perlman to be shorter than her 5ft nothing ex-husband Danny DeVito.

Does Jason Stratham care that his supermodel girlfriend Rosie Huntington-White is taller than him? We're guessing... No.

When you're married to someone as rich as Bernie Ecclestone, it's hard to care that they're much shorter than you. Just ask Slavica Ecclestone.

We get the feeling Mick Jagger likes all girls. He likes them tall girls, he likes them short girls. He likes them brown haired girls, he likes them blonde haired girls. He likes them big girls, he likes them skinny girls. He likes them carrying a little-bitty weight girls.

But best of all he likes L'Wren Scott.

We used to have a huge crush on Seth Green. We soon got over it though, unlike statuesque Clare Green.
