The 45-year-old ex-wife of Tom Cruise said she is glad that they did not meet until 2005 because she thinks waiting until later in life to settle down again gave them a better chance of forging a deep bond, reported Contactmusic.
"My husband inspires me. We met later in life and I think when this is the case, you have a much better chance of going to a deep place. My parents met when they were 23, so sometimes meeting young works for people, but for us we know who we are and where we're at.
"Keith and I have a kind of shorthand in getting to know each other.
I want a very deep, monogamous relationship and I am very fortunate because because I adore him. I love him and it's that simple," she said.
The 'Paperboy' actress also said it is important to scare yourself in order to overcome fears in life.
"I think it's important to do things that scare you sometimes. I've been called fearless but that's not the case. I have an enormous amount of fear but I push through it.
"Sometimes it's other people who push me, sometimes I will feel terrified, but then I'll just say to myself, 'What is the worst that can happen? So people don't like it, so I fall flat on my face, I hurt myself - that's OK," she said.
