All three films the pair co-starred in between 1990 and 1999 – Days of Thunder, Far and Away and Eyes Wide Shut – appeared on the highlight reel.

But none of the scenes Kidman shared with her then-husband made the cut in the montage, which was shown before a screening of Cruise’s latest film, Top Gun: Maverick, and later during a question-and-answer session with the American superstar.

The former couple, who married in 1990 when Kidman was 23, first appeared together in Days of Thunder, a romantic action film set in the world of motor racing.

Cruise and Kidman shared a romance both on and off screen during filming, but the Cannes montage only showed a clip of Cruise behind the wheel of a race car.
