The Rabbit Hole star was married previously to Tom Cruise for 11 years and shares two adopted adult children with the actor. 

Nicole spoke about the 'juggling act' in an interview which aired on theToday Show Wednesday, revealing she and her musician husband put family first when thinking of their next moves.  

'There are times when it gets put out into a family meeting and we all decide whether we can move here for a period of time and mummy can make a film or daddy can go do this,' she explained

The Oscar winner then went on to recount one such recent event when Keith and the girls both vetoed something she was thinking of doing.

'It was just whether I was going to do Photograph 51, which was a play I did in London, whether I could take that to New York and do it. Both my kids said "no" and my husband said "I hope not". So, there it is,' she said with a smile.

Clearly not bitter or unhappy about the situation, the actress gushed: 'That's the life of an actress who also ultimately priorities family, because that's what's going to happen at times' 

'I would have loved to have done that on Broadway, but I love my kids and my husband far more,' she concluded.

The film is scheduled to be released in the U.S on November 25, 2016, in Australia on January 19, 2017 and in the U.K. on January 20, 2017.
