The early noughties are remembered as much for their on-trend velour tracksuits and trucker hats as they are the demise of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s marriage.
It was all anyone could talk about! Until 2003, when Nicole Kidman was romantically linked to Lenny Kravitz. And despite the increasingly loud engagement whispers that followed the somewhat-unlikely duo, nothing was ever confirmed...
But in the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s online magazine The Edit, the 49-year-old actress finally admits that she really was engaged to the iconic rocker.
While talking about her highly-anticipated new HBO series Big Little Lies, Nic mentions she and costar Zoë Kravtiz already share a lengthy history. ““Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family!”
She added: “I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”
Finally! An answer!
The Lion actress previously admitted to being engaged between Tom and her current husband Keith Urban, in a 2007 interview with Vanity Fair.
“I didn’t really want a relationship. I just wanted my kids to have me, and I didn’t feel comfortable having some person in that small hubbub. And then I got engaged to somebody . . . but it just wasn’t right,” she said.
“I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready.”
A report from People explains that Nic and Lenny met when she rented his Manhattan apartment in the summer of 2003.
But their whirlwind romance quickly met its demise (luckily for Keith!) in December of the same year, after they spent Thanksgiving together at his Miami home.
According to the publication, Kravitz said, “She will always be someone in my life.”
