Throughout the past few years, Nicole Kidman has been more forthcoming about her personal life — particularly her fractured relationship with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise. That includes talking about her eldest children, Isabella (25) and Connor Cruise (23), whom she shares with the A-list celebrity. While Kidman has been fairly reserved about discussing her children in the past, the Boy Erased actress talked about her children in a new interview. She also discussed their devotion to Scientology, and how she supports her kids for making their own decisions — including in their religious beliefs.
Nicole Kidman’s recent comments about Isabella and Conner Cruise were found in her interview with the Australian publication WHO. Her movie Boy Erased sees Kidman plays the wife of a Baptist preacher, played by Russell Crowe, who discovers that her teenage son is gay. As such, the publication wanted to learn more about the actress’s relationship with her own children — including her two adult children that she often doesn’t talk about in public settings. While Kidman has been rather reluctant to talk about her kids in the past, she did offer a couple quotes this time around.
As a high-profile celebrity, Nicole Kidman knows how important it is to protect her children from the public spotlight– particularly if they would rather live private lives. That said, how that her children are fully-grown adults, she understands that they need to make decisions for themselves. When it relates to their religious beliefs, Kidman knows that it is ultimately their choice. If they believe in the principles taught by Scientology, that’s their own decision.
In addition to her recent comments about Conner and Isabella Cruise, Nicole Kidman also recently opened up about the miscarriages she had while she was married to Tom Cruise. While it is a difficult subject to relive, it continues the actress‘s new tradition of revealing more about her past struggles.
