Mumbai: Actress Nicole Kidman says she was in awe of Tom Cruise when they first came face to face.
The 49-year-old actress met Cruise, who she was later married to for 11 years, on the set of Days of Thunder in 1990, reported Female First.
"I remember walking in, I remember being so nervous and seeing Tom Cruise drive up in a Porsche, I think it was. He got out of the car and walked through and I was like, 'Ah.' My jaw dropped.
"Then I had to go in and audition in front of Tony Scott. Sweet Tony.(Producers) Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer, Robert Towne and Tom. I was like, 'No way, I'm not going to get this.' They called that afternoon and I had the job," Kidman said.
The actress said the movie changed her life completely.
"I was just like, 'Oh my god, Mom!' Yeah, that was huge. Huge. You know, obviously, changed my life extraordinarily. So grateful for the film, for everything that came with it. It was a big, important part of my life."
