Nicole Kidman
is opening up about her divorce from Tom Cruise, and she's getting personal!

The 46-year-old covers the December issue of Vanity Fair where she talks about her relationship with the "Vanilla Sky" star, their divorce and her family life with country rocker Keith Urban.

Kidman also compares her relationship with Tom to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's high-profile love life.

"There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you're in that bubble, it's very intoxicating, because it's just the two of you," she tells the mag. "And there is only one other person that's going through it." 

"So it brings you very close, and it's deeply romantic. I'm sure Brad and Angelina have that -- because there's nobody else that understands it except that person who's sleeping right next to you," she adds.

But unlike Brad and Angie, Kidman admits that Tom wasn't her "great love." Cruise infamously filed for divorce from the actress in 2001 after 11 years of marriage, which she admits was devastating.

"With no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I've met my great love now," she says of Urban. "And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn't want it for a while, because I didn't want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married [to Tom]. And I needed to grow up."

Nicole and the country crooner tied the knot in 2006, and today they have two adorable little girls together, Sunday and Faith. "The Paperboy" star also lives in Nashville, which she admits has been the best decision for her family.

"There's an enormous amount you have to give up if you want to have a family. You can have a certain career, but you can’t be living in Hollywood, [where] absolutely everything, everything revolves around it," she confesses. "That wasn't my choice. I'd rather revolve around somebody else's career and then still find my own."
