Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise have surely been a very famous couple. The formerly married pair separated and both Nicole and Tom have moved on. Their divorce was highly debated in the media and now Nicole decided to open up about how her life has been after the separation from Tom.

"I was running from my life at that time. I wasn't able to handle the reality of my life," Nicole said during an interview at the Women of the World Summit, in London. Nicole and Tom divorced back in 2001. The actress went on to add that things had been so difficult for her that she actually tried to get lost in her movie characters, to be able to cope with everything that was changing after the divorce.

And Nicole must be telling the truth, as the actress's performances following the divorce from Tom have surely been amazing. These performances include the role in Moulin Rouge and the one in The Hours. "As an actor, you have this wonderful thing where you can go and get lost in somebody else's life and become somebody else for a period of time," Nicole explained.

So, Nicole put a lot of effort and a lot of focus in her roles, because of the struggle in her personal life. "Out of that came work that sort of was applauded and so that was an interesting thing for me," the star said. Nicole went on to add that she worked a lot during the coming years and that work was helping her.

"I then sort of embraced my own life and I got myself together and it took me a number of years and during that time, I worked a lot," the actress said. "The work was a great place for me to exist and then that culminated in winning an Oscar." However, Nicole said that despite the amazing success and the fantastic thing that winning an Oscar surely is, the award could not heal her wounded heart. "I was holding a gold statue and I was the loneliest I'd ever been," she said.

Currently, Nicole Kidman is happily married to Keith Urban. The two have been married for no less than 9 years.
