Nicole Kidman takes swing at Tom Cruise

May 1st, 2009 // 66 Comments

Nicole Kidman has taken a crack at her marriage with Tom Cruise and even dished out a surprising jab at Katie Holmes. Marie Claire reports:

‘I felt I became a star only by association,’ she complained to Easy Living magazine. ‘We would go to the Oscars and I would think, “I’m here to support him.” I felt it was my job to put on a beautiful dress and be seen and not heard.’
Meanwhile, Nic calls new husband Keith Urban her ‘greater love’, although it appears her greatest love is reserved for her daughter.
However, the Moulin Rouge actress hasn’t totally lose her sense of humour, speaking about her adopted children, she quips: ‘Bella is very maternal. Connor would like one of us to have a boy. [Pauses.] Katie…? [Laughs].’

Oh, SNAP! The Nicole Kidman burn, ladies and gentlemen. You never know when to expect it because nine times out of 10 in ends with her shattering into a million porcelain pieces while Keith Urban frantically whips out the Super Glue.

    I’d like to take a swing at Tom Cruise. With a bat. Katie takes a swing at him from time to time with the strap on…

    Man, she just gets gnarlier and gnarlier… Why can’t these assholes age gracefully? Or, you know, accept that they have no upper lip to speak of. Lisa Rinna is hardly a role model, Nicole.

    Wait – how exactly is that a jab at Cruise and a swing at Katie Holmes?

    Wait – how exactly is that a jab at Cruise and a swing at Katie Holmes? Seems pretty mild, to me…

  8. mairfly

    how is that a swing at katie holmes? she’s just telling her that she should have the boy.

    … I don’t get it.

  10. Fish,you got me all excited. I thought she hit cruise upside the head with and aluminum baseball bat while sing My Name is Mudd. fucking tease.

  11. Geez louise! She has so much botox, the bitch is gonna start to moo!

  12. nonane

    yeah…i totally didn’t get that….that wasn’t a burn at all!

  13. #12 – Agreed. Now fucking Paris Hilton without a condom? THAT’S a burn… Lindsey Lohan’s crotch? Burn. Brooke Hogan’s thighs? Burn. Tom Cruise’s asshole? Burn. This? Not so much…

    Why does she always sound like her adopted children are second class or not part of her family? Does Urban not want them around?

    Kidman is not only the worst actress ever but she is full of it. She went into the marriage to get fame by proxy. The only reason people paid attention to her was because of her husband. If she hadn’t married him, her lack of talent would have gotten her nowhere.

    FYI I worked for a magazine where her covers consistently sold the worst of anyone. Also her movies have been tanking for years.

    This is so so old. Is the Fish clawing through old newspapers for stories now?

    I believe that is a JAB at tom cruise, and a SWING at katie holmes. get your facts right.

  19. Lisa Rinna does have the best inflated lips, those extra tits on the lips can do wonders for a morning wood!

  20. Uh, add me to the “how is that a swing at Katie Holmes?” camp.

  21. Anna

    Is it really that slow a day? That was bit a jab. Maybe your next banner headline should read, “Superficial Writer Delusional”. Step it up, brother!

  22. Anna

    Is it really that slow a day? That wasn’t a jab. Maybe your next banner headline should read, “Superficial Writer Delusional”. Step it up, brother!

    To those who didn’t get the subtle swing and jab. Here it is.

    The swing at Tom Cruise was the implication that Tom likes for his wives to be arm candy in public supporting him and keeping quiet, but not much more than that. The jab at Katie was when asked about her adopted children she jokingly implied that Katie is young enough to be one of her adopted children.

    Fish, I thought it was funny.

  24. Danklin24

    That wasnt a jab at katie you idiot. you read it wrong. She wants katie to have more kids because she doesnt want to. She isnt calling katie a boy if thats what you’re thinking.

  25. meh

    lol i read it wrong at first, too, until someone on the comments said she meant for katie to have the next kid. i’m a moron, too. :D

  26. lioness

    This news is so OLD!! Why dig up stupid stuff like this?? I don’t see where she swings at TC, even though he deserves it, and no jab at Katie Holmes. She’s the one that probably knows how Nicole felt!! Must be a slow news day to post stale news!!

  27. post my post

    Exactly #24. She’s saying her son wants one of his mommies, Nicole or Katie, to have another boy and she’s like “Katie, I’ll throw that one to you, you’re young and I don’t want to have anymore kids”


  28. testington

    what retard posted this? that quote is YEARS old

  29. j

    The jab at Tom Cruise is her suggesting, slyly, that KATIE should have the boy.

  30. Kelley

    This poor chick cannot even smile properly anymore because of the botox over-use !!

  31. Oooh La La

    This has to be some of Madame Tussaud’s finest work.

    Who is it supposed to look like again?

  32. Dennis

    Be beard and not heard?

  33. jz

    Well, she IS younger, so it just makes sense for Holmes to have another kid. Also, it’s not new that men with big egos (and little, tiny pants) sometimes only want women as arm candy. Preferably younger women who can be easily led along by the nose. It’s not that deep, or that much of a jab.

  34. Victoria

    Kidman and her husband always have the most awkward, weird body language in photos. They don’t look as if they know each other well.

  35. post my post

    #33. NICE!

  36. ogal

    The jab is that Tom married a girl young enough to be one of their (nicole and tom’s ) adopted children!
    And the first part of the quote about her being his arm candy is very old.

  37. The Listener

    I totally misread the last part. I thought she was implying Katie was young enought to be one of her kids. But I see how she could be asking for Katie to have the next one.

  38. Not Convinced

    That was not a jab at Katie. I say that stuff all the time when people ask about kids. I look at my sister-in-law and say her name like…ASK HER!;)

  39. LizzieC

    I think she looks good for her age. Although I do think the lip filler was a bit much. She looked much better with thinner lips.

    I’ve always liked Nicole. Graceful and classically beautiful. Plus she seems like a nice person.

    My dermatologist said that Nicole Kidman is the textbook example of someone who uses way too much botox and her face looks about as natural as plastic wrap as a result of it.

  41. my comment

    I thought it was Carol Channing and was shocked to read it was Kidman. Wow.

  42. Heather

    I don’t see the swing at Tom or jab at Katie in there at all – in her comments about going to the Oscars with Tom and feeling like she should be ‘seen and not heard’ just shows how she was very insecure about her celeb status (which was huge then, too), and that she was overwhelmed by it…and as for the ‘Connor would like one of us to have a boy…Katie?’ just says that you should not expect another baby from the Kidman/Urban crew anytime soon, if ever, and if Connor wants a little brother, he should look to his Dad’s side of the family, because Nicole is done. Something out of nothing…

  43. You think it’s weird australia “dropped” this LUNATIC?

  44. emily

    she’s so scary and weird looking. why did she ever dye her hair blonde?!

  45. Fati

    I think the bigger issue here is that Nicole is starting to look old. Look at that grandma ear! It’s a shame, cause I always liked her looks.

  46. TotalNonsense

    You need to do more fact-finding before you regurgitate this nonsense. Marie Claire took some quotes out of context from an interview Nicole gave to Glamour magazine LAST YEAR!

  47. TotalNonsense

    #41 zesty –
    If I have a dermatologist like yours who would make comments about others based on just looking at photos, I would immediately switch to another doctor. Yours seemed so unprofessional!

  48. Nero

    Holy shit! How tall is she? 6′ 6″?

  49. Sauron

    Why are all these celebitches such a shorties? Aren’t there any chicks 9′ or taller?
