Nicole Kidman’s Marriage To Tom Cruise Protected Her From Sexual Harassment

Nicole, Too... After Tom

Kidman Says Being Married To Cruise Came With 'Protection'

Being married to Tom Cruise had its perks. 

For Nicole Kidman, it was apparently a level of protection against sexual harassment during her younger years in Hollywood.

The Boy Erased actress opened up about her decade-long marriage to Cruise in an essay for New York magazine, admitting that being married to the powerful actor kept her “cocooned” from the unsavory side of the business.

But before she got to the juicy stuff, Kidman felt the need to remind readers that she’s very much in love with current husband Keith Urban, writing:

“Being married to Tom Cruise at 22 is something I’m always reluctant to talk about, because I’m married now to the man who is my great love [Keith Urban], and it almost feels disrespectful.”

Yeah, yeah. After getting that disclaimer out of the way, she continued:

“That said, I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection.I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”

Inneresting… we wonder if Katie Holmes feels the same way?

After splitting up with the actor in 2001, the 51-year-old said she went on to experience her “share of #MeToo moments” — as well as other types of trauma not even Cruise could protect her from:

“But do I want to expose them in an article? No. Do they come out in my work? Absolutely. I’m open and raw. I want to have my well of experience and emotion tapped into — used, and I’m not just talking about sexual harassment. I’m talking about loss, death, the full array of life. But it has to be by the right people so it’s not abused again.”

Kidman suffered multiple miscarriages during her marriage to Cruise. She was just 23 when she had an ectopic pregnancy, and suffered another miscarriage around the time he filed for divorce.

They ended up adopting two kids, 25-year-old Isabella and 23-year-old Connor, both of whom reportedly have an estranged relationship with the actress.

Tom Cruise Reportedly Has Not Seen Suri In 5 YEARS!

5 Years?!?

Source Says Tom Cruise Refuses To Visit Suri

Wait, it’s been HOW LONG since we’ve seen Tom Cruise and Suri together??

According to a source speaking to UsWeekly, the Mission Impossible: Fallout star has not even seen his daughter in years, which, frankly, sounds impossible

Until we realized the last time the two were photographed together was way back in 2013!

The insider says Tom is allowed to see her 10 days out of every month but:

“He chooses not to because she is not a Scientologist.”

Wow. That’s some claim, but it fits with what we’ve heard before about their nonexistent relationship.

If Katie Holmes has a problem with that, she sure ain’t speaking up about it!

Of course, if Leah Remini is to be believed, that’s because she could LOSE her little girl if she does.

What do YOU think??

Leah Remini Claims If Former Friend Katie Holmes Talks To Her, She Could Lose Custody Of Suri

'It's Quite Sick'

Leah Remini Says Scientology Is Keeping Her & Katie Holmes Apart

Leah Remini continues to speak out against Scientology.

The actress covers LaPalme magazine’s Fall 2018 issue and readily answers some questions, bringing up Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, and their odd reluctance to say anything bad about their ex-husband Tom Cruise‘s religion.

“I don’t consider myself a champion. The people who speak on the show are champions. But I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents.”

That wouldn’t be at all surprising, considering how fiercely Scientology guards its secrets. Leah added:

“Trust me, Katie‘s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.”

Wow. If Katie really is facing such a dilemma, of course she would keep mum about Scientology. She also probably just doesn’t want to rock the boat at all. Since her divorce from Tom in 2012, Katie has kept a low profile, not even publicly acknowledging her longtime relationship with Jamie Foxx.

Seems like the actress is content with staying out of the spotlight as much as possible, and we can’t quite picture her coming out guns blazing against Scientology when it could upend her calm, organized life.

Thoughts? Would U want Katie or Nicole to say something?

The ALMOST Casts Of ‘A Star Is Born’ Will Blow Your Mind!

BEYONCE & JOHNNY DEPP?!?

The ALMOST Casts Of 'A Star Is Born' Will Blow Your Mind!

A Star Is Born is one of the most remade movies of all time, first made in 1937, then in 1954, then 1976, and now 2018.

This time around the aging star is being played by first-time director Bradley Cooper with the ingenue played by real life pop icon Lady GaGa.

Video: 73 Questions With GaGa

But this remake has been trying to get off the ground for 16 YEARS, and the casts that almost played the lead pair are… hard to imagine.

2002

Jennifer Lopez Will Smith A Star Is Born 2002

Will Smith was attached to star for a long time. Director Joel Schumacher announced he was planning to make the movie with the Fresh Prince and huge star Jennifer Lopez — whom Smith said at the time could put the movie in a Latin environment.

It’s unclear why this didn’t take off, but Smith and Lopez did appear in a movie shortly after: Jersey Girl. Huh.

Moving on…

2010

A Star Is Born Beyonce Russell Crowe 2010

Years later, Alpha Dog director Nick Cassavetes was announced to direct with stars Beyoncé and… Russell Crowe.

Luckily this would have been more the acoustic rock crooning Crowe does with his band and less the theatrical musical cantering of Les Miserables, so it may have worked.

But we’ll never have to find out.

2011-2012

A Star Is Born Possible Costars

Clint Eastwood becomes attached as director and loves Beyoncé. But her male counterpart proves more difficult.

First Clint wants his J. Edgar star Leonardo DiCaprio, but that didn’t work out — he decided to go make Django Unchained instead.

Then they actually discussed Tom Cruise, who would have been hot off critical acclaim for his singing in Rock Of Ages — if there had been any, which there was not.

At one point Clint even called Johnny Depp!

That script was calling for an aging grunge rocker the writer referred to as Kurt Cobain-but-in-his-50s, but still. Johnny Depp and Beyoncé??

2015

Finally BCoop, who starred in Clint’s American Sniper, got his chance behind the director’s chair and did not let it go to waste.

Whew.

Would YOU have watched any of those other versions??

Scarlett Johansson has had ENOUGH!

On Wednesday’s episode of Megyn Kelly Today, Brendan Tighe — who says he used to work on Tom Cruise‘s Scientology security team — claims he saw a report of women auditioning to date the actor after his split from Nicole Kidman in the early 2000s.
