Despite being in the spotlight the majority of her adult life, Nicole Kidman has managed to keep several of her personal matters private— especially when it comes to her children.
In a recent interview with Australia’s Who Magazine, Kidman opened up about two of her children she adopted with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise: Isabella (25) and Connor (23)— specifically, she discussed her support of their belief in Scientology.
“I’m very private about all that. I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is,” she started.
Scientology is a religion based on self-knowledge and spiritual fulfillment through study and training. Ultimately, whether Kidman agrees with their beliefs or not, she chooses to love them regardless.
In her eyes, tolerance is the key to successful parenting.
“I am an example of that tolerance and that’s what I believe – that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I’m open here,” she said.
For her, it’s all about unconditional love.
“I think that’s so important because if that is taken away from a child, to sever that in any child, in any relationship, in any family – I believe it’s wrong. So that’s our job as a parent, to always offer unconditional love.”
