They both met on the sets of Days of Thunder and they instantly became one of the most famous celebrity couples in the world.

But according to the actress it was never planned, reported CBS News. “It was pretty sudden. But, you know, when I fell in love, everything else was like, ehhh! I was distracted,” she said. Kidman revealed that she channelled her personal anguish over the break-up through her role of British author Virginia Woolf in 2002’s The Hours.

Talking about the movie, Kidman said, “Yeah. I mean, I was deeply sad at the time. So then I sort of… just kind of got lost in her. And it all sounds sort of mumbo-jumbo crazy stuff, but it kind of saved my life.” Kidman is now married to country singer Keith Urban, and they have two daughters together.

Earlier, Nicole Kidman said that she wanted to have children from very young age and always knew she would adopt. The 49-year-old actress had adopted Isabella, 23, and Connor, 20, with her former partner Tom Cruise, and has biological daughters Faith, five, and Sunday Rose, eight, with her husband Keith Urban.

“I always knew I’d adopt, I just always wanted a child. I think from a very early age, I wanted a child. I knew that I was going to have a child and that it didn’t matter [how], I actually didn’t know if I was ever going to give birth to a child. So that was the least of it for me. And what I did first was adopt,” Kidman said.
