Nicole Kidman's revelation on marriage to Tom Cruise, #MeToo experiences, and her impactful Hollywood journey.
Nicole Kidman, a prominent figure in Hollywood, acknowledges her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, for shielding her from the perils of the casting couch. The actress, known for her powerful roles, shared insights into her early marriage and the protective role Cruise played in her life.
Having entered the acting industry in her teens, Kidman achieved remarkable success, even purchasing her first house at the age of 19 with a cash payment. Her marriage to Tom Cruise at the age of 22, a high-profile union with the star of "Mission: Impossible," proved to be a pivotal point in her life.
In a candid confession, Kidman revealed that her marriage to Cruise, a man of significant influence in the industry, served as a shield against sexual harassment. While she married for love, the marriage also provided protection, preventing her from experiencing the darker aspects of Hollywood's casting dynamics. Kidman stated, "I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned.
