Cannes: Nicole Kidman is snubbed in tribute to her ex-husband Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman is SNUBBED in tribute to ex-husband Tom Cruise: The Cannes Film Festival montage of the actor’s Hollywood career doesn’t include any image of his ex-wife – despite her starring in three movies during their wedding

Nicole Kidman’s contribution to ex-husband Tom Cruise’s glittering Hollywood career was glossed over at the world’s biggest film festival this week.

Cruise, 59, was honored by the Cannes Film Festival with a 10-minute montage of highlights from his four-decade career on camera.

But Kidman, 54, who made three movies with the Mission: Impossible star during the 12 years of their marriage, was nowhere in the clips, Variety reports.

The three films the couple co-starred in between 1990 and 1999 – Days of Thunder, Far and Away and Eyes Wide Shut – were all featured in the highlights reel.

But none of the scenes Kidman shared with her then-husband were cut from the edit, which was shown ahead of a screening of Cruise’s latest film, Top Gun: Maverick, and later at a seance. Q&A with the American superstar.

The former couple, who married in 1990 when Kidman was 23, first appeared together in Days of Thunder, a romantic action film set in the world of motor racing.

Cruise and Kidman shared a romance both on and off screen during filming, but the Cannes edit only showed a clip of Cruise driving a race car.

Even the duo’s high-profile collaboration with legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick on Eyes Wide Shut was little rewarded.

Kidman received excellent reviews for her role, with critics praising her emotionally murderous scenes with her husband.

But at Cannes, the only scene in the film was that of Cruise removing a mask.

Variety reported that many of Cruise’s notable co-stars were featured in the highlight reel, including Dustin Hoffman, Kristen Dunst and Penelope Cruz.

Daily Mail Australia does not suggest Cruise requested that his ex-wife be omitted from the edit, and there is no evidence that he was involved in the editing process.

Cruise and Kidman divorced in 2001 after 12 years of marriage amid rumors that his involvement with his Scientology drove a wedge between them.
