Breaking up is never easy. Breaking up and having your dirty laundry out there for the world to see is even more difficult.

When Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman announced their divorce in 2001 after 11 years of marriage, many fans were completely shocked, some even devastated. Well, you were the only ones devastated by the split, because Kidman was also pretty upset about the end of her marriage.

The 43-year-old actress told Marie Claire UK:

"That was a great relationship. I think it ran its course. I was really damaged and not sure whether [love and marriage] was ever going to happen again to me."

During their very high-profile relationship, the Oscar nominated actress made some sacrifices for the 46-year-old actor.

She said:

"I was never seeking to be a celebrity. But I was prepared to do that for love...It's hard when you're young. But I'm ready to give up anything for love, because ultimately, that is what you have."

Kidman has since moved on and married country superstar Keith Urban and has two young daughters with the singer, Sunday, 2, and Faith Margaret, born in late December via surrogate.

She added:

"I certainly never thought I'd have a baby at 41. We never know what's around the corner."

Now she’s living on a remote 36-acre home in Tennessee, which she is more than happy about.

She said:

These days, the Kidman-Urban brood live on a remote 36-acre in rural Tennessee. No problem, she says.

"I'm crazy in love. I think you can live anywhere and do anything when you're crazy in love."
