Tom Cruise skipped the 2023 Oscars to avoid seeing Nicole Kidman.
His absence was due to schedule conflicts.
Top Gun: Maverick was nominated for six Academy Awards.
With his Sunday night absence from the 2023 Oscars, Tom Cruise ignited rumors. According to rumors, the Top Gun: Maverick actor skipped the ceremony to avoid seeing Nicole Kidman, his ex-wife.
Cruise, 60, skipped the 95th Academy Awards despite the fact that his big-budget film Maverick had six nominations.
In order to prevent a “awkward run-in” with Kidman, whom he divorced more than 20 years ago, the Mission Impossible actor apparently sought to avoid.
“Tom was not there because she was there, and he did not want a run-in,” a source told the media on Monday.
Yet according to people close to Cruise, his absence was “not personal” and was instead due to schedule conflicts.
