“There is something about that sort of existence 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. And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic.”

– Nicole Kidman on how extreme fame impacted her marriage to Tom Cruise, whom she married at age 23. The actress, on the cover of Vanity Fair’s December issue, told the magazine that people like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie go through the same experience: “There’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.” Kidman, who divorced Cruise in 2001, raves about living in Nashville with her daughters and husband, country singer Keith Urban, and away from the Hollywood spotlight. “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now,” she says.
