Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise spent most of their decade-long marriage in the center of the celebrity spotlight.
Now, 12 years after their split, Kidman, 46, says she's relieved that much of that attention has dimmed – even if she looks back on that period with a hint of wistful fondness.
"There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you're in that bubble, it's very intoxicating, because it's just the two of you," she tells December's Vanity Fair. "And there is only one other person that's going through it. So it brings you very close, and it's deeply romantic."
She says few people are part of that exclusive club.

It's not easy to keep the romance alive when you're miles apart, but Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman work hard at making their relationship strong despite their hectic schedules.
The country star and American Idol judge, appearing on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, happily reveals just how he and his wife of seven years stay in touch.
"We just make it work," says Urban, 45, who is currently juggling touring with his Idol duties, while Kidman, 46, is shooting a movie in London. (The couple's two kids, Sunday, 5, and Faith, 2, are in the U.K. with Kidman.)
"We never text, we never email," he says. "Phone calls only, which I really love that."
He then owns up to DeGeneres that he and Kidman occasionally send other messages.

Her dad's a country superstar and her mom's sung in movie musicals like Moulin Rouge, so it's no surprise that Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman's oldest daughter, Sunday Rose, 5, is a fan of good music.
"Sometimes I'll just hear Sunny singing 'Kiss a Girl,'" Urban, 45, says of his 2009 hit. "It's just infectiously catchy pop and I have a side of me that loves that stuff."
