Up until recently, the actress RARELY - if it all - mentioned her first husband, with whom she spent ten years, to the public!
However, in the past few months, she has started opening up about their marriage…and in her recent interview with DuJour magazine, gets more in-detail than EVER before!
"I fell madly, passionately in love. I was reeling with Tom. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him. We were in a bubble, just the two of us. We became very dependent on one another. [Before the divorce] our life together was perfect. It took me a very long time to heal. It was a shock to my system. [After marrying Keith Urban] My life changed. [He is] a wonderful, caring man. It took me so long to have a child. I feel enormous gratitude. Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me. It's a very private thing, but she just has."
You definitely get the sense from this that the end of her marriage was more difficult for her to cope with than any of us could have expected!
Which certainly makes sense as to why she STILL is hesitant to discuss the specifics of what went on - it must still be such a painful part of her past!
But hey! If she hadn't endured all of the shock and heartbreak with Tom, she would have never found her way to happiness - and a beautiful family - with Keith, so we're glad she appreciates the journey she had to take to achieve all that she has now!
Thanks for being so candid, gurl!
