MORE than 12 years after her divorce from hubby TOM CRUISE, NICOLE KIDMAN is still harping about how much it hurt – and a source says her current hubby KEITH URBAN is sick and tired of hearing about it.
Nicole and Keith met in 2005 and tied the knot in June 2006, six years after her split from Cruise. They have two daughters together, Sunday Rose, 5, and Faith, who turns 3 this month. Yet in the fall, Nicole told “DuJour” magazine about the shock she felt when the “Mission: Impossible” star walked out on her just two months after their 10th wedding anniversary.
“I was reeling with Tom” she said. “I was totally smitten. I fell madly and passionately in love. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him. I thought our life together was perfect, and it took me a very long time to heal.”
But when the 46-year-old actress recently spoke with Australian “Harper’s Bazaar,” it sounded as if the split was still an open wound.
Discussing her 2003 Oscar for “The Hours,” Nicole said her victory was overshadowed by the demise of her marriage to Tom – even though it had taken place three years earlier. “The award can show you the emptiness of your own life, which is what it showed me,” she revealed. “I was having professional success, and my personal life was struggling.”
And in “Vanity Fair’s” December issue, Nicole again waxes on about Cruise.
“There is something about that sort of existence (with Cruise) 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. It brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic.
“I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that because there is nobody else that understands except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
And even though Nicole assured the interviewer that 46-year-old Keith is “her great love” – all this reminiscing about Cruise has gotten on the country star’s nerves.
“Keith knows Nicole loved Tom and that she intended to be married to him for the rest of her life when he suddenly left her,” said a close source. “He gets all that – but Tom and Nicole’s divorce was finalized way back in 2001 and now it’s almost 2014. He’s fed up with hearing Tom’s name when they’re together and has told her it’s time she moved on.”
