Nicole Kidman Was Once Engaged to Lenny Kravitz

Nicole Kidman recently revealed that she was once engaged to singer Lenny Kravitz.

The 49-year-old actress dated the 52-year-old musician in 2004 after the pair met one year earlier and the blonde-haired beauty has confirmed over one decade later that the "Can't Get You Off my Mind" hitmaker did propose to her. "I love Lenny; he's a great guy", Kidman told Porter.

Although a reunion with Zoë was a perk of filming Big Little Lies, Kidman says the dark role distressed her. Lenny and Nicole's relationship apparently sparked shortly after her marriage ended to Tom Cruise in 2001 and before her 2006 nuptials to Urban.

Revealing how it pushed her to an outburst of her own, she said: "I couldn't sleep and the next morning I got up and went for a run to try and get some of (her character Celeste Wright's) energy out. I wasn't ready. We weren't ready". "After every take I wanted to just stop and say, 'Wow, '" Kravitz said.

According to the publication, Kravitz said, "She will always be someone in my life".

"I get engaged and I get married - that's my thing", she continued.

"As an actress, I don't clock in and out; it does bleed in and sometimes it's hard to process", she further explains. However, Entertainment Tonight weighed in, saying that Kidman has clearly stated that she is just not really the dating type. But neither Urban nor Kidman seem to hold any grudges or hard feelings toward Kravitz.

In fact, the former flames have remained friends after all these years, even posing together (with Nicole's country-singing husband) at the 2013 CMT Music Awards.
