Nicole Kidman Suffered Loneliness Before She Married Keith Urban

Nicole Kidman has fame, money and success in droves, but the Australian actress has revealed they did nothing to ease her loneliness before she married country singer Keith Urban.

Oscar winner Kidman found it hard to meet a potential partner after her decade-long marriage to Tom Cruise ended in 2001, she said in a candid interview published in Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

"When I was alone I became very isolated and felt very lonely and it was difficult to meet someone," Kidman was quoted as saying.

"I realised you can have so many beautiful things around you and if you don't have someone in your life to share it with, it doesn't mean that much."

Kidman, 40, spoke of her love for 39-year-old Urban, whom she married in June last year, less than four months before he entered rehab at the famous Betty Ford Clinic for alcohol abuse.

"We were two lonely people who met at a time when we could open up to each other," Kidman said.

"I'm just so grateful I have someone I can share the highs and also the lows with.

"I love him for his honesty and bravery. Simply put, he's a wonderful, wonderful man and I'm very lucky to have him."

Kidman even spoke about the prospect of having a baby, a matter which has continued to be the subject of intense media speculation for the usually private Australian star.

"It's in God's hands. If God wills it, it will happen," she said.

Kidman and Cruise have two adopted children, Isabella, 14, and Connor, 12.

When Isabella and Connor expressed an interest in having tattoos like their new stepfather, Kidman revealed she had to lay down the law.

"Call me old-fashioned, but I think that once you're 21 you can choose what you want to do, but up until then my kids aren't getting tattoos," she said.
