Cruise met Kidman while filming Days of Thunder in 1989 and tied the knot to the Aussie star in 1990, when he was 28. The pair adopted two children, daughter Isabella and son Connor, but separated in 2001. In a 2002 interview with Vanity Fair, she hinted that she sacrificed too much. "I realized I could be fulfilled creatively," she said. "I tried to deny it because it would have been so much easier for me to be by being a wife. I wish it could have been part of my trajectory, but it wasn't."
