Kid­man sup­port­ive of Scien­tol­o­gist kids

The Province - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ni­cole Kid­man is sup­port­ive of her chil­dren’s de­ci­sions to fol­low their dad Tom Cruise into the Church of Scientology.

The Big Lit­tle Lies star’s two adopted chil­dren, Is­abella and Con­nor, opted to live with her ex-hus­band af­ter their di­vorce in 2001, and started be­com­ing reg­u­lars at his church.

Ni­cole, who is not a Scien­tol­o­gist, has been pri­vate about her re­la­tion­ship with her kids over the years, but in a new in­ter­view with Aus­tralia’s Who mag­a­zine she in­sists she has noth­ing but love for them.

“I’m very pri­vate about all that,” she says. “I have to pro­tect all those re­la­tion­ships. I know 150% that I would give up my life for my chil­dren be­cause it’s what my pur­pose is.”

And al­though she may not agree with all their life de­ci­sions, she stands by her kids. “They are adults (now),” she adds. “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. 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.” Ni­cole also has two young daugh­ters with coun­try singer Keith Ur­ban, whom she wed in 2006.
