Aug 09, 2005 | 6:43am EDT

Nicole Kidman hopes ex-husband Tom Cruise and new love Katie Holmes find happiness for the sakes of their children.

Kidman insists she has remained single since her high-profile split from Cruise in Feb. 2001, while she's seen the actor embark on a series of unsuccessful relationships with Penelope Cruz and Sofia Vergara, before proposing to Holmes in June after a whirlwind three-month relationship.

The couple have two adopted children together, 12-year-old Isabella and 10-year-old Connor, and Kidman is desperate for the situation to be more normal.

She says, "I hope he's happy, it's that simple. If he's happy our kids are happy. He's had a few girlfriends now, and it's been years - we've moved on."

Kidman is also urging more women to check their breasts for tumors after hearing about fellow Australian star Kylie Minogue's ongoing cancer battle.

The actress personally experienced the horror of the potentially fatal illness during her teenage years when she supported her mother Janelle through her battle with breast cancer.

And she insists the disease can be beaten if more women are educated about cancer and how to detect it.

She says, "I think it's important that breast cancer is demystified and we all tell our friends to get their mammograms. And that even if you do get breast cancer, it's not necessarily a death sentence."

She wishes Minogue a speedy recovery out of the public eye saying, "I just hope they leave her alone and allow her to recover from this in the way she's meant to."
