Tom Cruise was absent from the 2023 Academy Awards.
According to a report Cruise skipped the ceremony to avoid an encounter with his ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
It’s also been alleged that Cruise was actually busy filming a new “Mission Impossible” movie.
Cruise and Kidman first met on the set of “Days of Thunder.”
Their romance blossomed and they got married.
Kidman and Cruise split up after 12 years.
Reports allege their marriage ended because Kidman refused to join the Church of Scientology.
Kidman revealed after their divorce that she was deeply in love with Cruise.
She said she would have done anything for the actor.
