Why was Nicole Kidman snubbed by Cruise’s Cannes tribute?

Cruise was surprised with an honorary Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

The award included a tribute to the Hollywood actor, including clips from many of his films, but one person was noticeably missing.

Cruise’s ex-wife Nicole Kidman, who the actor starred alongside in three films, was eliminated from the montage, including the films the couple starred in together, minus only his co-star.

The couple, who married after meeting on the set of Days of Thunder, later starred in Far and Away and Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

However, while clips of these films were shared during Cruise’s tribute, the scenes neither featured him nor Kidman.

Other Cruise co-stars starred including Dustin Hoffman (Rain Man), Kristen Dunst (Interview With The Vampire), Renée Zellweger (Jerry Maguire) and former flame Penelope Cruz (Vanilla Sky) making the cut.

The actor received a standing ovation when accepting his award.

Cruise and Kidman divorced in 2001 after he filed for divorce over irreconcilable differences. Tom Cruise: How old is the Top Gun actor – what is his net worth?
