"If I wasn't too old, I'd have four more (kids). I like noise." Nicole Kidman loves her role as a mother to four children, including adult kids Isabella, 21, Connor,18, who were adopted with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, and toddlers Sunday, five, and Faith, three, with her current partner Keith Urban.
Nicole Kidman's adopted son Connor Cruise has dismissed rumours suggesting he has became estranged from his actress mother in recent years. The 19 year old was adopted by Kidman and her now ex-husband Tom Cruise in 1995, along with his sister Isabella, who was taken in by the Hollywood couple two years earlier.
Kidman now lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband Keith Urban and their two daughters, and Connor has rarely been seen with his mother over the last few years, prompting rumours of an estrangement, but the teenager is adamant he has a good relationship with the Oscar winner.
He tells Australia's Woman's Day magazine, "I love my mum. I don't care what people say. I know that me and mum are solid. I love her a lot. My family means everything... Family comes before everything else."
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's adopted daughter Bella has a new look for the New Year - she has shaved her hair into a crew cut and dyed it red. She showed off her latest style during a trip to Disney World in Florida last weekend (21-22Dec13) as she celebrated her 21st birthday with brother Connor and their friends.
Nicole Kidman has described the attention surrounding her marriage to Tom Cruise as "intoxicating", but insists he wasn't the love of her life. The pair shocked Hollywood by splitting in 2001 after 11 years of marriage, a union which was the subject of huge press scrutiny.
The Hours actress has now explained how being at the centre of the storm with her former partner was exhilarating, likening their situation to the current interest in superstars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's relationship.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, she says, "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. I'm sure Brad and Angelina have that - because there's nobody else that understands it except that person who's sleeping right next to you."
Kidman also admits that while she found times in her marriage to Cruise thrilling, her current partner Keith Urban is the one for her.
She adds, "With no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I've met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn't want it for a while, because I didn't want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married (to Cruise). And I needed to grow up."
The actress wed country music star Urban in 2006 and they have two daughters, Sunday and Faith. Kidman is also mum to her adopted children Isabella and Connor Cruise.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are getting a lot of Hollywood support in their bid for a World Series baseball berth - Tom Cruise and his son Connor and Bryan Cranston were spotted at the team's play-off series with the St. Louis Cardinals earlier this week (beg14Oct13) and Will Ferrell read out the Dodgers' starting line-up at Wednesday's (16Oct13) game. Tinseltown's favourite baseball team is currently 3-2 down in the best-of-seven series, which resumes in St. Louis on Friday (18Oct13).
Actress Nicole Kidman will not pressurise her children to follow her footsteps into the acting industry. The Moulin Rouge! star, who has two adopted children - Connor, 18 and Isabella Jane, 20 - from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise and two daughters - Sunday Rose, five, and Faith Margaret, two - with husband Keith Urban, is adamant her offspring should be left to find their own career path.
She tells Australia's ABC radio, "I loved acting... my heart was truly affected by stories and characters; it was innate... Keith was never pushed into (music); he just sort of started teaching himself at about five or six years old."
The Oscar-winning actress is currently promoting her film Stoker in Australia, in which she plays widowed mother Evelyn Stoker.
Tom Cruise and his 19-year-old son Connor hit the water in San Francisco Bay, California on Sunday (28Jul13) to experience a little high-speed sailing with Emirates Team New Zealand's crew as they prepared for the upcoming America's Cup race. The daredevil father and son were more than just passengers on the huge catamaran - they worked the sails and took turns at the helm.
After his water adventure, the Top Gun star said, "It was really extraordinary... We got to work with the crew. It's remarkable.
"We thought we were just gonna get on and we were gonna be just cruising... and the next thing we know, it was like, 'You're on this one, you're on that one. Go, go, go... Stop. Faster. Faster. Stop...' It was a real privilege. We wish the team great success."
The team is already flying in the standings after beating Italy's Luna Rossa crew by more than three minutes in their final meeting in the America's Cup challenger just before their famous visitor and his son stepped aboard.
The New Zealanders now advance straight to the Louis Vuitton Cup finals, which begin on 17 August (13). The winner will then face Oracle Team USA in the 34th America's Cup in September (13).
"I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology. I have two children who are Scientologists... and I utterly respect their beliefs." Nicole Kidman refuses to speak out against the controversial faith that boasts her ex-husband Tom Cruise among its leading members. The former couple's adopted kids, Isabella and Connor, follow their father's religion.
Thanksgiving: a time for families and friends to gather and remember all the things that are going right in the world. No matter how bad things get, they could be worse.
Example: theoretically, America could be invaded by enemy troops, we could be forced to form ragtag militias, and we could have to blast our way to safety. See? Much worse.
