In that precocious little decade the aughts (2000–2010, RIP), the culture found itself in a bit of turmoil: George W. Bush was in the midst of a tumultuous presidency, rock was entering a decidedly sad-guy phase, and one-time Hollywood dream couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were divorced. Considering it was such a strange time, you’d be forgiven if you had forgotten the fact that Kidman dated handsome rock star and needer of reinforced leather pants Lenny Kravitz before settling down with fellow Australian Keith Urban in the place all Australians eventually go: Nashville.
However, it wasn’t as casual as it seemed. As Jezebel reports, Kidman has admitted that she and Kravitz were more than just an Über-gorgeous item; rather, they were engaged. It didn’t take (as your grandmother might say), but Kidman was very cool about it all, revealing that she knows Kravitz’s daughter Zoë, her co-star in the new HBO series Big Little Lies “because I was engaged to her father,” to Net-A-Porter magazine. Way to drop that big little revelation in there, Nicole. And remember: If two super-attractive people can’t make it work, neither can any of us.
