Nicole Kidman speaks about adopted kids' Scientology beliefs in rare interview

Nicole Kidman

"They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions", she told Who magazine. They've made choices to be Scientologists, and as a mother, it is my job to love them'.

Kidman went on to describe herself as tolerant, explaining that she believes it's a parent's responsibility to love their child regardless of any differing personal beliefs. I have to protect all of those relationships. She recently revealed they, as well as Isabella and Connor, motivate everything she does telling Entertainment Tonight: "I think everything is motivated by wanting to take care of your children and carve a path for them and leave them with a sense of morality, dignity and accountability". "So that's our job as a parent, to always offer unconditional love", she added.

Kidman and Cruise adopted daughter Isabella (now 25) and son Connor (now 23) during their marriage in the 1990s.

Now, Kidman is breaking her silence on their two adopted children, Connor and Isabella Cruise, of whom she rarely speaks publicly.

Any bad blood that appeared to be between Kidman and Bella, however, seemed to be squashed by February 2018 when Bella named her clothing line "Bella Kidman Cruise", honoring both her mother and father.

It comes after former Scientologist Leah Remini published a controversial book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, claiming Nicole may have been made an "SP" by the church.

Kidman, Keith Urban and their daughters Sunday and Faith at Sydney Airport a year ago.

Over the years, there has been speculation that the siblings have become estranged from their mother, and more so when she married Keith Urban in 2006 and had two biological children, Sunday, 10, and Faith, 7. Her career is still going, and she has a husband and family ...

"That said, I got married very young, but it definitely wasn't power for me - it was protection", Kidman continued. "She left and she's OK". However, neither Kidman or Cruise attended Bella's wedding in 2015. "I would work, but I was still very much cocooned".

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

'When I say "protection", there is nearly like a barrier.
