Nicole and Lenny in June 2013.
The 49-year-old actress was speaking with The EDIT about her new HBO miniseries, Big Little Lies, when she was asked how it was to work with young actress Zoë Kravitz.
“Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father. It’s all in the family!” Nicole confessed during the sit-down. Mind blown!
“I love Lenny. He’s a great guy,” she added.
In a new interview, Zoë laughed at Nicole’s confession. “I think she forgot that no one knew that,” she told The EDIT with a giggle. “I hadn’t seen her in a long time before Big Little Lies, but there was a point where we were all kind of living together. I was about 13, and she would take me to see movies; she was so nice to me.”

The Moulin Rouge star and the 53-year-old rocker previously met in 2003 and reportedly dated until 2004. In a 2007 interview, Nicole coyly revealed she was once secretly engaged to someone in the early 2000s, but never revealed the man’s identity.
“It just wasn’t right. I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready,” she told E! News at the time of her broken engagement.
Nicole was engaged to Lenny between her two marriages. The actress was hitched to Tom Cruise — with whom she has two adopted children, daughter sabella Jane Cruise, 24, and son Connor Anthony Cruise, 22 — from 1990 until 2001.
In 2006, she tied the knot with country star Keith Urban. The couple now have two daughters, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, 8, and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban, 6, together.
Prior to his relationship with Nicole, Lenny was married to The Cosby Show star Lisa Bonet from 1987 until 1993. The former couple welcomed daughter Zoë, 28, in December 1988.
In Big Little Lies — which recently finished up its first season — Nicole stars as suburban mom Celeste Wright who is best friends with Reese Witherspoon’s character, Madeline Mackenzie. Zoë portrays Bonnie Carlson, Madeline’s ex-husband’s second wife, in the comedy-drama. Here’s hoping for Season 2 of the show!
