Kidman mistaken for Cruise's ex-wife

NEW YORK: Wrinkle-free Nicole Kidman was left red-faced during a recent trip to a Starbucks in New York City — after being told she looked like Tom Cruise’s ex-wife!

The Aussie actress was, of course, married to the Top Gun star from 1990-2001.

But it seems Nicole, who was wearing jeans and T-shirt and had wet hair, is a shadow of her former self — because the young lady behind the counter at the Manhattan branch of the popular coffee shop failed to recognize the star, who is now married to country crooner Keith Urban.

“The woman behind the counter loudly proclaimed, ‘You look just like that lady who used to be married to Tom Cruse. Does anyone ever tell you that?’” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“Nicole ignored the question, placed her order, went bright red, and then quickly ran out the shop before anyone else recognized her.”

Kidman and Cruise — who is now married to Katie Holmes — have two adopted children together.

Kidman, 42, also has a daughter — Sunday Rose – with Urban.
