Marriage to Tom Cruise ‘protected’ Nicole Kidman from harassment
NICOLE KIDMAN says she was spared uncomfortable #MeToo experiences as a young actress, because her hubby at the time, Tom Cruise, was so protective of her.
Recalling life under the Top Gun actor’s wing, the Oscar winner, 50, said: ‘I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed.’
The Big Little Lies actress was 23 when she wed Cruise, now 56, in 1990 and they divorced 11 years later — an event Kidman says made her ‘grow up’.
Speaking about Hollywood’s harassment scandal, she told New York magazine: ‘Of course I’ve had #MeToo moments. But do I want to expose them in an article? No. Do they come out in my work? Absolutely.’
