It's going to be hard for Nicole Kidman to lay low this summer. Us Weekly has learned that the Oscar-winning actress, 45, will be in London for most of the 2012 Summer Olympics, which kick off in the UK later this month.

Kidman is the spokeswoman for OMEGA Watches, the official timekeeper of the Olympics, and thus will be on hand in London for various promotional appearances. Husband Keith Urban -- and presumably their daughters Sunday, 3, and Faith, 19 months -- will be at her side.

Still, with hundreds of millions of TV viewers watching the games -- and hundreds and hundreds of reporters in town -- it may be difficult for Kidman to avoid at least a few questions about the Hollywood story of the summer: Her ex-husband Tom Cruise's still-developing divorce and custody battle with Katie Holmes, who filed papers last Thursday after nearly six years of marriage.

Kidman and Cruise, 50, divorced in 2001 after 11 years together, and share kids Isabella, 19, and Connor, 17.

Much has been made of Kidman's supposed estrangement from her older children, with whom she has not been photographed in years. Several former members of the Church of Scientology claimed to the Hollywood Reporter that members of the organization deliberately turned Bella and Connor against their mother -- a charge a rep for the church vehemently denied.
