    Kidman was married to the Mission Impossible actor from 1990 to 2001, and during that time, they welcomed their two kids, Connor and Isabella.

    “I was young. I think I offered it up?” Kidman said about whether she felt annoyed by all the media attention they got.

    “Maybe I’ve gotten a bit more trepidatious, but I’m always trying to be as open as possible,” Kidman laughed. “I just prefer to live in the world that way. … I’m wary at times, and I’ve been hurt.”

    “But at the same time, I much prefer a warm approach rather than a prickly shut-down approach,” she continued.

    “My husband, Keith, says that when he met me, he said, ‘How’s your heart?’ And I apparently responded, ‘Open.’”

    After Kidman and Cruise’s 2001 divorce, she moved on with “Stupid Boy” singer Keith Urban, whom she married in 2006. The couple later welcomed two kids, Faith and Sunday.

    “We really love parenting together,” Kidman said about her and Urban, and she also opened up about their romance behind the scenes.

    “We’re always working through stuff, but it’s very much love-based, so there’s an enormous amount of give and take,” she said.

    Kidman has finally found her Prince Charming, and everything seems to be working out for them! You can read the rest of her interview with Harper's Bazaar here.
