"I love Lenny", she said.

Nicole Kidman has been happily married to country music star Keith Urban since 2006, but she once had a quite serious relationship with musician Lenny Kravitz.

Meanwhile, Nicole previously admitted their relationship didn't last because the couple weren't "ready". She said, "Well, I knew Zoe because I was engaged to her father".

"[Nicole] can be quiet and shy, which is interesting because the beast of an actress that she is, is so loud and clear". I'd come back and I'd need Keith to hold me, just to feel soothed.

The Lion actress added that she and Kravitz were still on good terms. "I wasn't ready. We weren't ready", she told the publication.

Kidman didn't provide many details about her broken engagement in the Vanity Fair story from 2007.

Revealing how it pushed her to an outburst of her own, she said: "I couldn't sleep and the next morning I got up and went for a run to try and get some of (her character Celeste Wright's) energy out". Instead, she offered some illumination on her attitude towards commitment and matrimony.

According to a People report, Kidman and Lenny Kravitz met "when she rented his Manhattan apartment in the summer of 2003". The story does not mention their engagement.

And as for Zoë Kravitz's opinion of her could-have-been step-mom?

There were a number of former flames who could have been the mystery fiance: Kidman is thought to have dated rapper Q-Tip, actor Adrien Brody and singer Robbie Williams in between her marriages to Cruise and Urban.
