Nicole Kidman Says Tom Cruise Has Control Issues

Nicole Kidman Says Tom Cruise Has Control Issues-photo

According to Nicole Kidman, being married to Tom Cruise isn't the idyllic situation it might at first seem to be.

Aussie actress Kidman—who was hitched to Cruise from 1990 to 2001—tells Easy Living magazine that Cruise expected her to be "seen and not heard" when they were together.

"I felt I became a star only by association," Kidman continues. "We would go to the Oscars and I would think, 'I'm here to support him.' I felt it was my job to put on a beautiful dress and be seen and not heard."

Presumably, Kidman's current husband, country singer Keith Urban, is more generous in sharing the spotlight with his lady-love.

Also presumably, Cruise's new spouse, Katie Holmes, is more willing to take a back seat to his star power.

Cruise might have a little trouble with their three-year-old daughter, though. If there's one thing that kid excels at, it's commanding attention.

    Get over it, ladies. Kidman has an Oscar. Tom has his couch. I think Nicole has moved on extremely well. Keith Urban makes Tom look like plastic, rather small plastic. Cruise is nuts in so many different ways.

    I couldn't agree more with Millie. Time to stop milking the divorce, Nicole. What a transparent grab for attention.

  • Millie

    She's getting on my nerves now. Is she ever going to shut up about Tom Cruise? World to Nicole Kidman: You've been divorced now for eight years... move your life on before you become as whiny as Jennifer Anniston. I don't know why she is so bitter about it. If Tom Cruise hadn't married her, she'd probably be starring in an Australian TV Soap today.

    Keith is very cute when you are with him you know :)

    That quote seems totally out of context too, it seems she is not directly attacking Tom Cruise, but the way she felt at that point in her life, because it's not easy to eclipse a star like Tom Cruise. He was hugely famous when she was still in Australia taking acting lessons, for example.

    Nice to see a recycle of a 6 month interview. If they want a new interview, they should ask her instead of rehashing what is old news

    Yes its from Glamour magazine inetview last year I hate "Tabloid Mags" I reckon it doesn't make it any less true. What Tom Cruise lacks in stature, he makes up for with control tactics. Dude seems to have a Napoleon complex.

    It looks like Easy Living magazine simple cut and pasted an interview Ms. Kidman gave Glamour magazine last year.
