Nicole Kidman says divorce from Tom Cruise was shock to system
Nicole Kidman was blindsided when her ex-husband Tom Cruise filed for divorce, because she thought their life together was "perfect."
Cruise moved to end their 10-year union in 2001, citing irreconcilable differences, but the Australian actress didn't see it coming.
"It took me a very long time to heal. It was a shock to my system," ABC News quoted Kidman as telling author Patricia Bosworth in the new issue of Du Jour magazine.
"I thought our life together was perfect," she said.
After the shock, Kidman bounced back from being "Mrs. Tom Cruise," both professionally and personally, winning the Best Actress Oscar for her work in 'The Hours' and going on to marry country music star and new 'American Idol' judge Keith Urban.
