Nicole Kidman: Divorce From Tom Cruise Was A 'Shock To My System'

Nicole Kidman (photosNicole Kidman photos) says her marriage to Tom Cruise over ten years ago was happy but extremely isolated.

"I was totally smitten -- I fell madly, passionately in love," Kidman, who was 23 when she married Cruise in 1990, tells DuJour magazine. "I was reeling with Tom. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him."

But being married to Cruise also came with media attention that she wasn't used to: "We were in a bubble, just the two of us," she says. "We became very dependent on one another."

Kidman says she "was so impulsive and na´ve" and thought "our life together was perfect," until the surprise divorce.

"It took me a very long time to heal," she says. "It was a shock to my system."

Kidman is now married to country star Keith Urban, and the couple have two daughters together.

"He is a wonderful, caring man and he makes me feel secure," she says. "We don't ever like to be separated."

"It took me so long to have a child. I feel enormous gratitude. Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me," she adds. "It's a very private thing, but she just has."
