Nicole Kidman Can't Have It All

In a Talk magazine interview, movie star Nicole Kidman, divorced from superstar Tom Cruise, talks about the sacrifices a mother and wife must make:

It's tough being a woman and having kids and working, definitely. I see people who say, "Oh yeah, I'm doing it all"—forget it. Something is going to give—usually when you are just really, really tired. I only work now if I really feel it's worth it. And I have to say no to things I really love because it's just not the right time. Sure, you could try to do it all and try to take all the roles you want, but you wouldn't know your kids and you wouldn't know your marriage. I think that's a big thing. Distance destroys relationships. It just does.
