Nicole Kidman Never Talked with Katie Holmes About Tom Cruise SplitWritten by People Magazine 03 October 2012
Nicole Kidman says that contrary to media reports she never counseled Katie Holmes in her recent split from Tom Cruise.
"I never spoke to her. I wish all of them well, but I was not involved in any of that," Kidman, who weathered her own emotional split from the star in 2001, tells PEOPLE's Australian sister publication, WHO magazine, for its 20th Anniversary issue, which asked the Oscar winner to look back on her own past 20 years.
Still Kidman, 45, looking resplendent in a five-page pictorial spread and back to her natural red tresses – says she's grateful for her 10-year marriage to Cruise, 50, because he helped to shape her family, now four kids strong.
"I got married really fast and really young. But I don't regret that because it got me [children] Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period," says Kidman, now happily married to country music star and fellow Aussie Keith Urban since 2006.
While her first marriage wasn't the forever-after she'd dreamed of, she looks back philosophically on that turbulent period of her life, saying the whole experience was "all a part of growing up."
