Christmas Eve

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman- 24/12/1990

Cruise met Kidman on the set of their 1990 Days of Thunder in 1989. They have since starred in Eyes Wide Shut (1999) and Far And Away (1992) together.

They subsequently married on 24 th December 1990 in Tellurise, Colorado. The newlyweds adopted two children Isabella Jane (born December 1992) and Connor Antony (born January 1995).

As Kidman is 5'11'', she was 4 inches higher than Cruise so rarely wore heals when she was seen publicly with him to match his height- now she is rarely seen without a pair of heels.
