Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman are some of the most famous stars in the world, so fans might be surprised to know their daughter lives a more normal life in Croydon. Isabella Kidman Cruise, 29, has been living in South London in recent years with her British husband Max Parker and their pet reptile.
According to The Mirror, in 2020 low-profile daughter Bella refused to live at her father’s £ 342,000-a-month penthouse in London. Tom and Nicole’s adopted daughter turned her back on the spotlight, preferring life in south London over Hollywood.
Her Top Gun star dad apparently has a place at the historic Corinthia Residences in the city with four-bedrooms, an indoor pool and amazing views of the cityscape, the Mirror reports. Located just down the road from 10 Downing Street, it’s in the heart of the city.
Bella and her husband Max made the move to Croydon in October 2017 to be closer to Max’s parents, reports the publication. The couple had married two years earlier in 2015, a year after meeting through mutual friends. According to The Sun, neighbor, Emma, said of Bella: “I wouldn’t have known her if she’d come up and smacked me in the face. I don’t keep up with celebrity culture.
“They have a reptile of some kind – we can see the red light of the tank. That’s all anyone seems to know. She’s very mysterious. I suppose she’s decided to live out of the spotlight. I don’t know why she’s chosen Croydon, poor child! ”
Tom and Nicole adopted Bella in 1992, and then three years later they adopted her biological younger brother, Connor Cruise.
