Once Kidman was single again, tabloids were back to pinning romance rumors involving her and any possible celebrity in her vicinity. One such rumor said that she had an affair with her “Cold Mountain” co-star Jude Law and that it ultimately broke his marriage.
Kidman wasn’t going to let such baseless allegations fly. She and Law denied the story and Kidman even won some substantial cash from the British tabloids that printed the article.
No Hard Feelings
While they were no longer together, it seems that Kidman and Cruise didn't hold any unnecessary grudge toward each other. Not according to her, at least.
In fact, in a 2006 interview she gave to "Ladies' Home Journal", she only said she will always have a love for him: "To me, he was just Tom, but to everybody else, he is huge [...] he was lovely to me and I loved him. I still love him."
After ending her relationship with Cruise, Kidman turned her focus to her job. She was back to being applauded for herself and her talent, and she could once again nurture her career full time.
Some of her best work was done over the few years after her divorce, including her participation in "Moulin Rouge!", "The Hours", and "The Others." This newfound focus could be the very thing that won her the Best Actress Academy Award for her 2003 portrayal of Virginia Woolf in "The Hours".
Playing the Field
When Kidman was ready to jump back on the dating wagon, she did it with style. She's had relationships with several Hollywood superstars such as the rapper Q-Tip and musician Lenny Kravitz.
She dated the latter between 2003 and 2004. After that, she had a brief romantic involvement with British singer Robby Williams. While she had the finest men in showbusiness as a dating catalog to choose from, none of them were her one true love. Speaking of which, now seems like the right time to take a closer look at Keith Urban's life.
Welcome to the World, Keith!
October 26th, 1967 was a big day for Marianne and Bob (Robert) Urban. This was the day when they had their youngest son, Keith, who didn't know it yet but would become a world-famous musician.
Before any bit of this career even became feasible, the New Zealand Born Keith didn't have much. He lived with his family of four on a farm and they all slept in a single, shed-like house with no individual bedrooms.
