Kidman and Cruise adopted daughter Isabella (now 25) and son Connor (now 23) during their marriage in the 1990s. Since their split in 2001, Kidman has had little public contact with her two adopted children — but as she tells Who magazine in a new interview, it doesn’t mean she’s not still extremely close to her kids.
“I’m very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is,” she said.
Surprisingly, she also addressed her children’s decision to stay with the Church of Scientology, of which their father is the most famous member.
“They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them,” she said.
“And I am an example of that tolerance and that’s what I believe — that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I’m open here.”
Multiple reports then suggested that when a Scientologist leaves, they are often cut off from their families and labeled a “suppressive person” or “SP”.
