A happy moment can have its own dark history. Nicole Kidman opens up about the 2003 Oscars win when despite reaching a major milestone in her career her personal life was going through retardation. In 2003 the actress took home an Oscar for her role in The Hours not long before ending her 11-year marriage with Tom Cruise. As per People, the actress reflected on her complicated time with author Dave Karger in his new book 50 Oscar Nights. Let’s find out more details about this story.
Nicole said she was struggling with things in my personal life
The Big Little Lies star, “I was struggling with things in my personal life, yet my professional life was going so well, That’s what happens, right?”
“I’m not a big party girl, so I was going to skip the Vanity Fair party,” the 56-year-old added, “and everyone was like, ‘You’ve got to go. You’ve got to walk through the party carrying your Academy Award. I said, ‘That just feels like gloating, and it doesn’t feel humble.’ Like, what? You can’t walk through carrying the award! That feels really inappropriate. They’re like, ‘That’s what you do.’”
The actress also explained, “I literally walked in, carried it around, was completely overwhelmed, emotional, shaking, and I didn’t enjoy it. I was almost apologetic, which is so stupid. I wish I could have enjoyed it more.”
Moreover, Kidman who shares daughter Isabella, 30, and son Connor, 28, with Cruise explains how she celebrated her victory, “I went home and ended up ordering takeout and eating it on the floor of the Beverly Hills Hotel. I sat on the floor of the hotel eating French fries and a burger with my family and went to bed. That’s when it hit me. I went, I need to find my love; I need a love in my life.”
The Undoing star also revealed, “Because this is supposed to be when you go, ‘This is ours.’ I went to bed alone; I was in bed before midnight. If I ever won again, I’m telling you, I’d be out for 24 hours.”
However, Nicole finally got rid of these struggles after she wed Keith Urban in 2006. The couple who is going stronger than ever is also proud parents of daughters Sunday, 14, and Faith, 12.
Needless to say, her dark period is long gone now.
