Kidman And Cruise Top Gossip In 2001

24 December 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The divorce of Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman has been rated as the top gossip-generating story of 2001. Benn Todd, showbiz editor for British tabloids the Daily Star and the Daily Express, says the best stories are always the most surprising ones - which was definitely the case with the February announcement of the screen stars' separation. He explains, "Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman dominated the press for most of 2001 and, for many magazine and newspaper show business editors, was by far the top story of the year. There hadn't been any whispers about it." Following the split, Kidman became one of the world's most photographed women in showbiz as watchers looked for some sign of distress in the actress. Kidman, however, prevailed and went on to win critical acclaim for her roles in the Baz Luhrmann musical Moulin Rouge and the suspense thriller The Others, produced in part by ex-hubby Cruise. Another break-up that made headlines was Titanic star Kate Winslet's divorce from director husband James Threapleton. Media interest grew when it was reported that Winslet was dating American Beauty director Sam Mendes. Liz Hurley also sparked media interest when she announced she was "thrilled" to be pregnant with millionaire boyfriend Stephen Bing's child. »

14 December 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicole Kidman has topped her spectacular year by claiming E!'s coveted Entertainer of The Year award. The sexy actress, 34 has been in two hit movies this year, Moulin Rouge and The Others, divorced Tom Cruise and become a role model for strong women everywhere - and now she has beaten the casts of Sex & The City and The Sopranos, Broadway stars Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and soul sensation Alicia Keys to claim this year's top entertainer prize. She says, "Entertainer? I really like that. It sounds better than actor. It was an interesting year, a strange year. Creatively it was very fulfilling, but there were some pretty dark times. Somebody was looking out for me." »

Nicole Kidman Vows To Keep Kids Out Of Movies

12 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicole Kidman is vowing to keep her adopted children with ex- husband Tom Cruise out of showbusiness until they are adults. The flame-haired beauty is determined Isabella, 8 and Connor, 6 will not become child movie stars and only pursue acting when they are old enough to deal with fame. She says, "My children asked me if I loved kids in The Others more than them. "They were so sad. They would quiz me as soon as I'd walk in the door: 'Mommy, how were those kids today? Did they do good? Did they remember their lines? And I would have to lie and say they weren't very good. If I hadn't lied to them they would have moped around all night." She continues, "Tom and I sat then down when they were younger and told them to go to school and college and study drama and do it right." »

Nicole Kidman Shocked By Success

5 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicole Kidman is stunned her role in The Others has been such a commercial success. The recently divorced mother of two is currently starring in the chilling tale of a dominating mother. Nicole says of her role, "The Others feels like forbidden fruit for me in a way. I was in Batman Forever, but I've never had my movie be a hit movie. It gives me the power now to do something else a little bit offbeat, and they'll finance it. I'm surprised at it's success. I thought I was making this strange atmospheric little thriller with dark undertones." »

Kidman Flies Home

1 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Australian Nicole Kidman returned to Sydney for the premiere of her latest film The Others - but is keeping tight-lipped about whether she plans to stay. Kidman, who is currently in a custody battle with ex-husband Tom Cruise over their two children Isabella and Connor, will not say if she plans to live in L.A. or Australia. Also at the charity premiere were Matrix star Laurence Fishburne, rocker Jimmy Barnes and ex-Savage Garden singer Darren Hayes. As Kidman arrived at the cinema, she was greeted by seven-year- old Nicholas Powell who was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor when he was just 16 months old. The Moulin Rouge star joked that Nicholas would be her date for the evening, in the wake of media reports linking her to stars such as Russell Crowe and Robbie Williams. Kidman told reporters, "Nicholas is my date. He's very brave and he's taking care of me and I'm taking care of him. I have done so many premieres, and I started thinking, 'Hold on, let's start raising money for something good instead of just showing up at these things'." »

Nicole Kidman Wanted To Pass On The Others To Another

3 October 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicole Kidman originally told the director of her new film The Others to find another actress. The Australian beauty - who is now tipped to get a Best Actress Oscar-nomination for her performance in the movie - didn't think she could handle the role. In The Others, Kidman plays a woman raising two children by herself in a creepy, haunted mansion just after the end of the Second World War. Kidman says of the demanding role, "At one stage I actually said to Alejandro, 'I think you should ask somebody else because I just don't feel that I am going to be able to do it.' I didn't really want to go into the places where I was going to have to go in order to play the character. For a week prior to the shooting I was really reluctant to delve into it. And then, once I took the leap. She was a woman who had lost her husband and was trying to take care of her children, and wanted to protect them. That was what was interesting to me." »

Judge Clears The Way For Cruise And Kidman's Divorce

Reuters reports Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lee Edmon granted a petition Monday to "bifurcate" the divorce proceedings between Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, clearing the way for their marriage to be officially ended next week. The bifurcation allows the divorce to proceed and be completed prior to the settlement of property and custody issues, which will be slugged out by the duo's lawyers in the coming months. Kidman and Cruise are supposed to be seen together in public, for first time since the divorce was announced, when they attend the premiere of Kidman's new film The Others (which was produced by Cruise) in Los Angeles next Tuesday. Barring any legal difficulties, they'll be together again the following morning... in a courtroom, ending their marriage. (This report was prepared by IMDb staff) »
