Despite the chilling accusations that Nicole Kidman's ex-husband, Tom Cruise, had her phone tapped, and basically divorced her because Scientology's head honcho told him to, Nicole Kidman is keeping her account of their marriage classy.
The 48-year-old actress has remained mum since she and Tom divorced in 2001, but she recently broke her silence, telling The Evening Standard that she has no regrets.
When she was asked what she learned from her 10 year marriage, she said, "I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don't regret any of it."
The former couple met on the set of Days of Thunder when she was 23 and he was 28, and the rest, as they say, is a very public history, mired in strange scientology rumors.
When the two split, Nicole, understandably went through a dark chapter. She's previously said that it was the "loneliest" she's ever be been, and she spent 2001 "running away from life" (luckily she ran towards an Oscar-winning role in The Hours).
Several years later, she met her current husband, Keith Urban and the two quickly stumbled into a relationship.
She adds in the interview, "Out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss [Tom] now," but she did say one of the biggest lessons she took away from time with Tom was, "Be the best you can be, not the worst, and think of the children."
Nicole and Tom, 53, share two adopted children, Isabella, 22 (who recently had a parent-less secret wedding) and Connor, 20.
"I got married really fast and really young," Kidman told Who magazine. "But I don't regret that because it got me Bella and Connor, and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period."
You can't help but appreciate her diplomacy.
