Australian actress Nicole Kidman and American actor Tom Cruise were once one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples. The pair met on the set of their film "Days of Thunder" and married in 1990. However, their highly publicized relationship ended in divorce in 2001, after over a decade together.
Kidman and Cruise were both successful actors in their own rights, with Kidman gaining critical acclaim for her performances in movies such as "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Moulin Rouge!" Cruise, on the other hand, was a major box office draw with films like "Top Gun" and "Mission: Impossible."
The reasons for their divorce have been the subject of much speculation, with rumors ranging from Cruise's devotion to the Church of Scientology to Kidman's alleged affair with actor Jude Law. However, both parties have remained tight-lipped about the specifics of their split.
Despite their separation, Kidman and Cruise have continued to have successful careers in Hollywood. Kidman has won numerous awards for her work, including an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in "The Hours." Cruise, on the other hand, has remained a bankable star, with the "Mission: Impossible" franchise becoming one of the most successful action series of all time.
In recent years, Kidman and Cruise have both moved on in their personal lives. Kidman married country singer Keith Urban in 2006, and the couple has two daughters together. Cruise, on the other hand, had high-profile relationships with actresses Penelope Cruz and Katie Holmes before marrying actress and model Katie Holmes in 2006.
