Nicole to Katie: I have no regrets

Los Angeles - Nicole Kidman told Katie Holmes she has "no regrets" about divorcing Tom Cruise.

The actress has been supporting the former Dawson's Creek star over her decision to divorce Tom - who Nicole was wed to for 10 years before she separated from him in February 2001 - and in one heartfelt conversation she told Katie her life had been great since she'd parted from the Top Gun actor.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Nicole told Katie her life is great now and she has no regrets."

Katie, 33, ended her five-year marriage to Tom, 50, in June and moved to New York City with the couple's six-year-old daughter Suri.

In the weeks leading up to her decision, the brunette beauty had reportedly been confiding in Nicole, 45, about her plans and the Oscar winner offered her support and advice.


The pair became friends shortly after Katie's wedding to Tom in November 2006 and bonded over Nicole and Tom's adopted children, Isabella, 19, and Connor, 17, who lived with their father and Katie.

The source said: "They spoke when Nicole called the kids. She knows what it's like in that house."

Katie and Tom finalised a divorce settlement on July 9, less than two weeks after they split.

In the deal it is believed Katie will get primary custody of Suri and will continue to live with her daughter in New York City, with Tom allowed substantial visitation rights.

The Rock of Ages star is believed to have agreed to pay $10m in child support over the next 12 years.

After divorcing Tom, Nicole went on to marry country singer Keith Urban in 2006 and the couple have two daughters Sunday, four, and 17-month-old Faith Margaret. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
