Nicole Kidman has publicly thanked her father for helping her through her lowest days after her marriage with Tom Cruise ended.
Her split from Cruise in 2001 brought her closer to her father Anthony who is a devout Catholic. She pointed out that her father's faith was pivotal in helping her cope.
Contactmusic.com quoted her as saying: ""My father really stood by me at a tough time. He was strong and dignified, and I'm very grateful that I do have a good father, because, having him there with me at that time, put me in good stead for carrying on with my life and learning to trust again.
"My father has a very strong Catholic faith. He has a strong set of values, and he has passed his Catholicism on to my sister and me, but when he gives advice it's mostly based on being a good person, being tolerant, and doing unto others what you would wish them to do to you.
