Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, Far and Away
The onscreen love story:
Though Shannon had been a wealthy aristocrat and Joseph a poor farm boy in Ireland, they find themselves equally hard up after they emigrated to America. Against the setting of the Industrial Revolution-era New York, they fall hard for each other and live happily ever after on their newly-claimed land.
The offscreen love story:
Cruise and Kidman had met on the set of an earlier movie (
Days of Thunder
) and were married for a couple of years already when they made this movie. But by 2001, they were done — and free to move on to their next spouses.
