Nicole Kidman Confirms She Almost Married Lenny Kravitz

Nicole Kidman Confirms She Almost Married Lenny Kravitz

The 49-year-old actress dated the 52-year-old musician in 2004 after the pair met one year earlier and the blonde-haired beauty has confirmed over one decade later that the "Can't Get You Off my Mind" hitmaker did propose to her.

Kidman, who's producing and starring in the upcoming HBO series Big Little Lies about complicated relationships in a group of women, recently discussed relationships of her own. "Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father", she told Net-a-Porter's magazine.

"I love Lenny", Kidman went on to add. "I wasn't ready. We weren't ready", she told the publication. For starters, both are single parents: "Kidman to Isabella, 10, and Connor, 8, from her 10-year marriage to Tom Cruise that ended in 2001; Kravitz to daughter Zoë, 14, with ex-wife and former Cosby star Lisa Bonet, 36".

"I get engaged and I get married - that's my thing", she continued. However, Kidman insisted, "I didn't really want a relationship".

Speaking previously, she said: "It just wasn't right. I'm interested in a very, very deep connection".

Launching on Sunday, the HBO series tells the dark tales behind the seemingly ideal lives of three mothers, played by Kidman, Reece Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley. She said, "I was quite traumatized after [filming] because we would shoot [the violent scenes] repeatedly". It's a glass door, so I got a rock and I threw the rock through the door. "And then I realized, 'Oh my gosh, that's how much I'm holding all this in, the anger, the pain'".
