Have you ever been in love? Really in love? Well it doesn’t matter how many sunrises you’ve seen over the Eiffel Tower, because there is no romance like A-list romance, according to Nicole Kidman, who says being an A-lister in love is something so completely different from what normal people experience that the only people who could possibly understand what she’s talking about are Brad and Angelina.

While she describes husband Keith Urban as her “great love,” she says her marriage to Tom Cruise had an unreal intensity brought about by their high level of mutual fame.

It doesn’t matter if half of a couple is famous, like Matt Damon and the nice lady Matt Damon married, or even if both members of a couple are famous unless both people are the most famous people in the entire world. (Sit down, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Your children are adorable and we love you, but Nicole Kidman is talking.) Because the most romantic thing in the world is being the most famous woman in the world and in love with the most famous man. She told Vanity Fair:

“There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you. And there is only one other person that’s going through it. So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that—because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”

We admittedly do not get what she’s talking about, but then we are not any part of Brangelina or even Kimye. Fame is a weird thing, and the closest I’ve ever come is that time someone on the street mistook my boyfriend for a VJ.
