Actress NICOLE KIDMAN has invited her estranged husband TOM CRUISE and their children to join her at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL next month (MAY01).
The Australian beauty and her Mission Impossible 2 (2000) star husband separated in February (01) and Tom has since filed for divorcing after a 10-year marriage. The pair have split parenting duties to look after their two adopted children, ISABELLA and CONNOR.
Nicole's hotly-tipped new film MOULIN ROUGE (2001), also starring EWAN McGREGOR, will open the French festival and Nicole is keen for the premiere to be a family day out.
A friend of Nicole says, "She isn't talking about a reconciliation but merely a get-together. But she thinks they can both be adult about the situation and it would also be great for their kids." (ES/WNWCAN)
