Nicole Kidman: "My Kids Don't Call Me Mom"

Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman says Isabella, 14, and Connor, 12, - her two adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise - are reluctant to use the traditional parental moniker and instead call her Nicole, much to her annoyance. She told UK TV show 'GMTV': "My kids don't call me mommy, they don't even call me mom. They call me Nicole, which I hate and tell them off for it."

The Golden Compass (new movie out Demember 7) star recently revealed she is unhappy Isabella and Connor are being raised as Scientologists in Los Angeles. Catholic Nicole lives in Nashville with her second husband Keith Urban, while her children live with Scientologist Tom and his new wife Katie Holmes. She said: "Yes, they're being raised as Scientologists. I don't want to go there. My daughter and son, their life is moulded by the way I live. If I wasn't willing to take on that responsibility, I shouldn't have adopted them."

Nicole then went on to say, "Then it can be argued that I should never have divorced, and that's true, too, but sometimes you don't have a decision in that. People fall out of love, they do. When children are teenagers, they have a say in where they want to be. Los Angeles is a big draw, and I'm looking to get a place there so we can share more."
