1. “They made choices to be Scientologists.” Nicole Kidman has spoken about her two adopted children.
Out of Nicole Kidman’s four children, it’s her two younger daughters – Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret – that she shares with her current-husband Keith Urban who are the most well known. However, the Big Little Lies and Boy Erased actress also has two adopted children with her first husband Tom Cruise.
There’s not too much we know about her 25-year-old daughter Isabella Cruise and 23-year-old son Connor Cruise, other than their relationship with the Church of Scientology, which is widely believed to have played a role in her divorce from Cruise in 2001.
The 51-year-old has also been criticised for snubbing her eldest children in her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes earlier this year.
“Sunny, Faith, I love you. I’m bringing this home to you babies,” she said.
However, in a recent interview with Who Magazine, the actress says rumours around an alleged rift with Isabella and Connor are completely false.
"I’m very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 per cent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is," she said.
When probed about their relationship with Scientology, she continued to remain diplomatic in her response.
"They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them," she said.
"And I am an example of that tolerance and that’s what I believe – that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I’m open here."
"I think that’s so important because if that is taken away from a child, to sever that in any child, in any relationship, in any family – I believe it’s wrong. So that’s our job as a parent, to always offer unconditional love.”
