Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise's daughter swaps Hollywood for Croydon
Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise‘s daughter Isabella Cruise has reportedly ditched her glamorous Hollywood upbringing to live her life in London’s Croydon, after she was spotted with her husband Max Parker hunting for a house there.
The 24-year-old make-up artist and IT consultant wandered around the rather grey South London borough looking for places to live, according to the Daily Mail.
Bella is said to feel more at home in the UK and she’s rarely seen around her famous mum and dad, though she previously blasted claims that she doesn’t speak to them.
However, the Hollywood A-listers were notably absent when she married Max at a secret Scientology wedding at the Dorchester Hotel in London last September.
Isabella – who is known as Bella – was adopted in 1992, followed by her younger brother Connor three years later, and lived with her dad when her parents split in 2001, following him into the Church of Scientology.
She said: “Of course [we talk], they’re my parents. Anyone who says otherwise is full of s**t.”
Tom claimed he couldn’t attend the wedding because of his busy schedule while it was rumoured Nicole – who was in London at the time – wasn’t invited because she is labelled a ‘suppressive person’ by Scientology leaders.
And Max – who isn’t a Scientologist but confirmed his wife still is – admits he was upset the ‘Mission: Impossible’ star wasn’t there to give his daughter away.
Asked if he was bothered, he said: “Yeah. It is what it is.”
While Bella thinks Max would make a great father, she isn’t keen to start a family yet.
She said: “I’m 23, so we’ll see. I’m still a baby myself.”
Despite Nicole and Tom’s combined wealth of around $600 million, Bella and Max have rejected financial support and live in a modest one-bedroom house.
IT specialist Max insisted: “I’m still a regular guy.”
Asked if Bella’s detached herself from the fame and fortune side of her life, he added: “Yeah, you could say that. It’s more [of a] weird [situation] for everyone else.”
Meanwhile, Max’s parents, Beverly and Lester Parker, also missed the wedding as they feared it would be a “media circus”.
Beverly said: “We didn’t go but we knew all about it. We stayed away, we didn’t want the media circus.
“The pair of them are lovely, I’m very pleased for them both and they’re very happy.”
And Beverly has no interest in meeting her daughter-in-law’s famous adoptive parents.
Asked if she wanted to meet them, she said: “No, no, there’s no need for that. At the end of the day they’re just people aren’t they?”
