Nicole Kidman opened up about Isabella and Connor Cruise, her two adopted children with Tom Cruise, in a new interview.
The 51-year-old actress’ two older kids are both members of the Church of Scientology, just like their father. Nicole hasn’t appeared publicly with Isabella, 25, or Connor, 23, in years.
People have long speculated that Scientology drove Nicole apart from the rest of the family, but she rarely speaks about it herself. This week, she finally gave an update, addressing the topic in an interview with Australia’s Who magazine.
“They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions,” Nicole said.
“They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them.”
Importantly, Nicole isn’t a member of the church herself. One source claims that the church deemed her an SP, or Suppressive Person, thus cutting her off from her family.
Nonetheless, she says she loves all of her children unconditionally. In addition to Isabella and Connor, Nicole has two younger daughters with her husband, Keith Urban.
