She was a relatively unknown talent who married a Hollywood heartthrob. For ten years they were a staple power couple who drove Hollywood tabloids and the box office’s credibility.

Nicole Kidman‘s Sydney to Hollywood story is the stuff that Hollywood movies will be made of. Nicole finally opens up about the Tom Cruise break up.
MSN News reports: Nicole Kidman has spoken candidly about battling depression in the wake of her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2001 via Who Magazine.
Kidman, 45, says she did struggle after the breakdown of her 10-year marriage to the Hollywood star.
“I got married really fast and really young,” Nicole revealed. But I don’t regret that because it got me [adopted children] Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period.
“Then when it didn’t work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression. I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up.”
Nicole elaborated on her personal turmoil following the highly public split. “There were times following [the divorce] when I thought, ‘Wow, this is the loneliest, loneliest existence,’” she told Who.
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake it.

The Mid-West of the USA is suffering from severe drought at the time of writing. Other nations in the world are too.
People Water is one of the top twenty topics being obsessed about in the USA right now. When I lived in Los Angeles, Nicole Richie was doing a lot of awareness about water’s importance in the world. Fast forward three years and reality TV stars of the USA are doing something similar with the People Water project. To find out more, click on pic above.
Reality TV – Charity Work pairings USA: The Huffington Post reports: The Bachelorette winner Jef Holm (see Newsday) isn’t your typical skinny-jeans-wearing-overly-idealistic skateboarding hipster — he’s actually making things happen to create. After announcing an engagement to Emily Maynard and a relocation too, Jef’s too much. He’s off to dig wells in Africa.
Although I think, why doesn’t Jef just stay put in the USA and dig water wells in the Mid-West instead; if Africa is where Jef wants to help find water too, good on him.

On Tuesday, Tom Cruise turns 50. Saddening timing was his divorce news with Katie Holmes. Katie, 33, is the one to watch as the stars’ divorce is the tabloid generator mid-year, feeding USA’s lucrative media and entertainment markets.
So far, Katie’s PR team’s spin is all ’independant woman,’ ‘child is top priority,’ ‘parents happy she’s happy,’ ’will wrestle boxes and unpack too’ - while ‘moving charming daughter into Manhattan apartment’ etc. Action, action. action. Women all over the world (including the Mid-East) have their eyes glued to Katie Holmes right now. Katie is definitely on Independence Day duties in the USA this year.
What about Tom?
He’s already got good early Oscars buzz this year, however for Tom Cruise - most journalists have reported the surprise of a ’wife gone in a jiffy angle,’ noting: ”His wife’s filing appeared to come as a shock to Cruise” as Tom is filming Oblivion in Iceland with the mantis, Morgan Freeman.
Incidentally Katie Holmes was raised Catholic, but converted to Scientology when she wedded Tom as a demure child bride of the American pie favorite drama series, Dawson’s Creek. Anyway, more Sushi Samba expedition news here.
When you watch the news clip: it just goes to show how big a deal Katie and Tom both are, worldwide. In New Zealand, like our local Hollywood actor Cliff Curtis, we know Tom Cruise as… well, a samurai.
Pays to watch the news aye?!

Tom Cruise is to star in a sci-fi epic due for release in July of 2013 entitled Horizons. The $100 million movie is to be directed by TRON: Legacy helmer, Joseph Kosinski, adapted from his forthcoming graphic novel, Oblivion. William Monahan (The Departed, Body of Lies) has penned the script.
|Artwork from the forthcoming graphic novel Oblivion, on which the movie Horizons is to be based.|
According to Variety:
“Cruise is set to star as Jack, a man who lives in the clouds above Earth and heads to its surface to repair drones that essentially keep the planet safe from an alien race that has all but wiped out humanity.
There are two key female characters — Victoria, Jack’s right-hand woman and lover who serves as his eyes and ears while he’s on repair missions, and Julia, his fiancee on Earth before the alien invasion.”
Horizons will be only the second alien/UFO movie in Cruise’s thirty-year acting career after his 2005 collaboration with Steven Spielberg on War of the Worlds.”
We’re in an election campaign here in NZ. Last night round 2 occurred between opposition leader Phil Goff and the PM, John Key.
Phil reportedly said: “For heavens sake, stop making promises you don’t deliver on.”
John Key borrowed from a Tom Cruise movie saying, “Show me the money!” responding to Goff’s delayed budget news.
Then Wayne the Landlord said, “You know what. I want to get me a tee shirt made in blue, that says LIAR on it.”
Yeah, I want to get one made that says “Liar 2″. Cos that’s what friends are for! :)
