Nicole told Interview magazine: “I yearned for it, and I imagined it, and I started playing roles where I was in love.”
The ‘Moulin Rouge!’ star – who has two adopted children, 14-year-old Isabella, and 12-year-old Connor, with ex-husband Tom Cruise – says she has finally found true love with her husband, country singer Keith Urban.
She said: “My husband and I are committed to each other and deeply in love.
That’s how I would put it. We’re working on staying in that place, and hopefully we will for the rest of our lives.”
However, the Australian beauty says she will never admit she is happy because marriage is “complicated and beautiful” and you never know what tomorrow will bring.
She added: “I don’t ever say I’m happy. Partly because interviews are done in advance and you never know where something’s going. People’s lives together are complicated and beautiful and that’s what they should stay.
They’re very quiet. Complicatedly quiet. They don’t need to be broadcast.”
Meanwhile, Nicole’s latest movie ‘The Golden Compass’ – based on the first book in Philip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials’ novel trilogy – is widely anticipated to be a box-office flop.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: “People working on the movie say it is just plain bad.”
Insiders claim the film – which is released in December – contains too much computer-generated imagery and problems have arisen over the talking polar bear.
A representative for New Line Cinema – which invested USD175 million into the project – said: “That’s bulls**t.”
