Nicole Kidman: My kids chose to live with Tom
Nicole Kidman stars as a mother dealing with the pain of losing a child in the movie “Rabbit Hole,” but in real life, she’s dealt with the difficulty of being separated from her kids.
She revealed in an interview with Hello! magazine that the two children she adopted with Tom Cruise, Isabella, now 18, and Connor, 15, spend most of their time with their dad.
The 48-year-old actor lives in Los Angeles with wife Katie Holmes and daughter Suri, 4, whereas Kidman has made her home in Nashville with husband Keith Urban and their two-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose.
“They live with Tom, which was their choice,” Kidman, 43, told the magazine. "I'd love [for] them to live with us, but what can you do?"
She explained to Marie Claire magazine in 2007 that the reason Isabella and Connor chose to live in L.A. after Kidman and Cruise separated was because, well, the California city is a "big draw" for kids.
"When children are teenagers, they have a say in where they want to be," Kidman said at the time. As for their upbringing? "Yes, they're being raised as Scientologists," she told Marie Claire. "I don't want to go there."
