"They are adults", Kidman said about their choice to practise Scientology.

"I wouldn't classify myself as a Scientologist, but my husband is", she said at the time, and stressed she was an independent woman: "I am who I am and I don't credit anybody except my parents with helping me". "They have made choices to be Scientologists and, as a mother, it's my job to love them", she continued.

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.

And the 51-year-old doubled down on those claims on Thursday, telling Australia's World Health Organization magazine: 'I don't know why the culture is set up like that and we aren't just protected anyway, but it's interesting that the power of another man gives you respect'. "I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it's what my goal is", she started. But in the new interview Kidman reiterated her "unconditional love" for all four of her children, which Connor said was the case.

When Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman split up in 2001, the couple's adopted daughter Isabella and son Connor seemed to lose contact with their mother while remaining close to their high ranking Scientologist dad.

Nicole Kidman and her children Connor (L) and Isabella (R) attend a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat at the Staples Center in 2004.

Besides Bella and Connor, Kidman is also mom to 10-year-old Sunday Rose and 7-year-old Faith Margaret with husband and country music singer Keith Urban. According to Leah Remini's tell-all book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Isabella viewed her mother as a "Suppressive Person", since she's no longer a member of the Church, and would be told to disconnect from her. "She left and she's okay". "This movie is a love letter to my children". "I would work, but I was still very much cocooned".

She said: "Being married to Tom Cruise at 22 is something I'm always reluctant to talk about, because I'm married now to the man who is my great love [Keith Urban], and it nearly feels disrespectful. So when I came out of it at 32, 33, it's nearly like I had to grow up".
