''This film says you can make an extraordinary relationship thrive and leave remnants of it that exist forever. Yeah, that's really gorgeous. You can't make people behave how you want them to, and sometimes you're going to fall in love with someone who isn't going to be the person you spend the rest of your life with. And I think that's all very relatable.''

The journalist, a woman, then asked Kidman 'with exquisite care' if she was referring to her marriage to the Cruise, disappointed Nicole was upset that her ex was brought up.

''Oh, my God, no, no. Absolutely not. No. I mean, that's, honestly, so long ago that that isn't in this equation. So no,'' she responded.

''And I would ask not to be pigeonholed that way, either. It feels to me almost sexist, because I'm not sure anyone would say that to a man. And at some point, you go, "Give me my life. In its own right."'
