  • Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise attend the 1991 Annual Academy Awards after party

The Boy Erased actress opened up about her decade-long marriage to Cruise in an essay for NY magazine, admitting that being married to the powerful actor kept her "cocooned" from the unsavory side of the business.

After starring opposite Cruise in 1990's "Days of Thunder", Kidman began a whirlwind romance with the star, tying the knot that same year and adopting two children together.

In a new essay for NY magazine's women and power series, the 51-year-old has written about her first marriage, as well as the #MeToo movement.

"I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed", she continued.

Describing herself as "very much cocooned" during her marriage, Kidman added, "So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it's nearly like I had to grow up". So when I came out of [the relationship] at 32, 33, it's nearly like I had to grow up'. "I want to have my well of experience and emotion tapped into, used - and I'm not just talking about sexual harassment", she said.

Fans blast Piers Morgan for mocking Daniel Craig's parenting
Morgan, who is known for his trolling on social media, set his sights on James Bond himself, actor Daniel Craig , on Sunday. The "Captain America" star joined in the criticism and tweeted a fierce rebuttal of Piers interpretation of masculinity.

She went on to marry country music singer Keith Urban in 2006, and the couple have two daughters, Sunday, 10, and Faith, seven.

The 51-year-old actor, who was married to Cruise for 11 years, said after their divorce in 2001, she had to start looking after herself.

In June, Kidman also opened up about the "massive grief" she felt after suffering miscarriages during her marriage to the "Mission Impossible" star. That revelation comes via an as-told-to essay in The Cut, in which Kidman admits her wariness about talking about her union with Cruise, especially because she's now married to her "great love", Keith Urban. In the 2017 HBO miniseries "Big Little Lies", Kidman starred as Celeste Wright, a wealthy woman experiencing domestic abuse. Later, they tried to conceive again, but she suffered another miscarriage. "I know the yearning", Kidman told Tatler magazine. "That's massive grief to women".

Hollywood has since been engulfed by claims of mass sexual harassment, with several high-profile actresses coming forward to say they had been attacked and the #MeToo movement rising to prominence. "And we lost a baby early on, so that was really very traumatic".
