Remember when Nicole Kidman was married to Tom Cruise? No? Fair enough, because (breaking out best gif ever in 3, 2, 1)....

The couple were married from 1990 to 2001, and Nicole was just 23 when they exchanged vows. Oh, and she was only 27 when she became a mother of two kids—a fact that completely astounds her circa right now.

"I was so young when I got married. I look back now and I'm like, 'What?'" Kidman recently told Red Magazine (via People). "You look at Taylor Swift, I mean how old is she? She's 26. I had two kids by the time I was 27 and I'd been married for four years. But that's what I wanted."
