Nicole Kidman Talks Katie Holmes And The ‘N’ Word [PHOTOS]
Kidman spoke candidly about her relationship with Tom Cruise and how she came to find peace in her life.
“I married [Tom] really fast and really young, but I don’t regret that because it got me Bella and Connor, and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period,” Kidman said. “Then when it didn’t work out, I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression, but I have no regrets about all of it.”
Kidman is now married to Keith urban and has two biological daughters in addition to her teenage children, whom she adopted with Cruise. “It was all a part of growing up,” she added.
“I never spoke to her,” Kidman said. “I wish all of them well, but I was not involved in any of that.”
Last night (October 3rd), Kidman and Urban attended The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s “Gala Tribute to Nicole Kidman” in New York City. On Wednesday, The Paperboy director Lee Daniels recalled how Kidman refused to use the controversial “n” word.
“I asked her to use the ‘N’ word,” Daniels explained, according to Us Weekly. “I could feel the racial tension there in the town. She said, ‘I won’t do it.’ I told my producer, ‘She won’t do it!’ Then he mapped it out — ‘Lee, day one she is on a washing machine, day two she is urinating on Zac Efron, day three she’s having telepathic sex . . . I think you can forgive her.”
Kidman defended her decision: “I have a son [Connor Cruise] who is African American. I just didn’t feel like it was right. What I try to do as an actor is fulfill a directors vision. I have opinions, but at the same time I’m not there to stop him from anything. I’ve really tried to do that in every film. I never want to pull them off their vision.”
