The “Being The Ricardos” star recently snapped during an interview when she was asked about the “Mission Impossible” star.
While promoting her new movie, in which she plays the role of Lucille Ball, Nicole went into detail about the relationship depicted in the movie between Ball and Desi Arnaz.
Nicole Has No Time For Tom Cruise
Speaking to The Guardian she said, “It’s about a creative and romantic relationship that doesn’t work out. But from it come some extraordinary things. And I love that. I love that it’s not a happy ending.”
“You can’t make people behave how you want them to, and sometimes you’re going to fall in love with someone who isn’t going to be the person you spend the rest of your life with. And I think that’s all very relatable,” Kidman continued. “You may have kids with them. You may not, but they were very much in love.”
A female journalist for the outlet then asked, as politely as possible, if the award-winning actress was referring to her marriage with Cruise.
Cruise & Kidman Were Married For 11 Years
This question did NOT sit well with Kidman, who has been married to country star, Keith Urban, for the last 15 years.
“Oh, my God, no, no. Absolutely not. No,” she responded. “I mean, that’s, honestly, so long ago that that isn’t in this equation. So no.”
Kidman and Cruise were married from 1990 to 2001. They adopted two children, Connor and Isabella.
The “Big Little Lies” actress laid into the journalist saying, “And I would ask not to be pigeonholed that way, either. It feels to me almost sexist, because I’m not sure anyone would say that to a man. And at some point, you go, ‘Give me my life. In its own right.’”
Nicole Calls Out Interviewer For ‘Sexist’ Question
During their marriage, Kidman and Cruise were the “Hollywood IT Couple.”
Wherever they went, paparazzi were sure to go. Everyone wanted a piece of the pie.
This is something Kidman went into detail about during an interview with People.
She explained that she was “young” and “offered it up” to the media.
“Maybe I’ve gotten a bit more trepidatious, but I’m always trying to be as open as possible. I just prefer to live in the world that way,” she told the outlet.
“Being The Ricardos” is an Aaron Sorkin about Hollywood power couple Ball and Arnaz in 1952. The film, released on December 10, shows the trials and tribulations between the “I Love Lucy” stars in their personal and professional careers.
