Nicole Kidman still does not regret her past marriage to Tom Cruise.

The 48-year-old Oscar winner talked briefly about her past relationship with the actor with the U.K. newspaper The Evening Standard in comments posted on Thursday. Kidman, who is currently married to musician Keith Urban, recently ended her second London stage run in the play Photograph 51, which earned her the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.

When asked if there were things she learned from her first marriage that she did differently in her second, she told the newspaper, "Any time you have a chance at something again is good, but each combination of people is different. I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don't regret any of it. But out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss any of that now." 

"Be the best you can be, not the worst, and think of the children," she added.

Kidman and Cruise, 53, share two adopted kids, Isabella, 22, and Connor, 20. The couple met on the set of the movie Days of Thunder, which was released in 1990, and wed that Christmas, when she was 23 and he was 28. They divorced more than 10 years later. 

"I got married really fast and really young," Kidman had also told Who magazine in 2012. "But I don't regret that because it got me Bella and Connor, and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period."

The actress married Urban in June 2006. Cruise and Katie Holmes wed about five months later. They divorced in 2012.

Kidman lives in Nashville with Urban and their daughters, Sunday, 7, and Faith, who will turn 5 this month.

Kidman told DuJour magazine in an interview published in September how it is very important for her to keep in touch with all her kids. Neither she nor Cruise attended Isabella's low-key wedding, which took place that month.
