Nicole Kidman has broken her silence on the rift claims surrounding her children with Tom Cruise

The 51-year-old actress adopted the two after marrying Tom Cruise in 1990, but in the 17 years since she and the actor split in 2001, Kidman has reportedly had a rocky relationship with her older children.

As fans may remember, while they were still a couple, Kidman and Cruise adopted a daughter and a son named Isabella and Connor who are now 25 and 23 respectively! "I know 150 per cent that I would give up my life for my children because it's what my goal is", the actress said in comments Australia'sWHO magazine published on Thursday.

Kidman went on to describe herself as tolerant, explaining that she believes it's a parent's responsibility to love their child regardless of any differing personal beliefs.

When the actor pair made a decision to file for divorce after 11 years of marriage back in 2001, the children chose to live with their dad!

Despite being erased from her children's lives, the Big Little Lies star says she'll always support them - but she still believes it's "wrong" that the Church encourages the severing of their relationships with her.

"I'm very private about all that", she said in a new interview with celebrity magazine Who.

Former Scientologist Leah Remini suggested Nicole had been made a Supressive Person - a term reportedly given to former members of the church of Scientolog, generally indicating they've been "cut off" from their family - in her book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, though the claims were later denied. "I have to protect all those relationships", Kidman told the publication.

Surprisingly, she also addressed her children's decision to stay with the Church of Scientology, of which their father is the most famous member, news.com.au reports. So that is our job as a parent, to always offer them unconditional love'. "This movie is a love letter to my children". "She left and she's OK".

Last month, Kidman said her marriage to Cruise protected her from the rampant sexual harassment in Hollywood early on in her career.

Do you agree with Nicole Kidman that love for your kids is unconditional, no matter what they choose for their life? "I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed". "I would work, but I was still very much cocooned".
