You know what they say, success is nothing if you don’t have someone to share it with. This is a quote that rings all too true for Nicole Kidman, who has opened up about the loneliness she felt when she took home her Best Actress Oscar in 2002.

Speaking at a Q&A session at the BFI London Film Festival, the now-49 year old confessed that what should have been one of the best nights of her life was overshadowed by her isolation.

‘Winning the Oscar was a turning point, but not in terms of my life as an actor, because it was incredibly validating, but it actually symbolised loneliness to me because I didn’t have anyone to share it with at that stage in my life,’ she revealed.

The win came just after her high-profile divorce from fellow actor Tom Cruise, and Nicole admits that she thought, ‘Wow, this means I need to get my act together and I want to fall in love.’

Luckily, the Aussie actress did find love and married country singer Keith Urban in 2006. The couple share two children together, Sunday Rose, eight, and Faith Margaret, five.
