From Virginia Woolf to Grace Kelly, Nicole Kidman has embodied a truly eclectic group of women in her film career. But there’s one role she’d like to revisit.
"I loved playing Satine in Moulin Rouge," the actress admitted at the Women in Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards on Tuesday. "It was terribly nerve-wracking for me because of the singing, which does not come naturally to me, but being pushed out of my comfort zone was fantastic."
Kidman was honored at the awards ceremony with the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film, and admitted onstage that early in her career, she was hesitant about taking roles out of her comfort zone and even turned down a role in a Jane Campion film because it involved "wearing a shower cap and kissing another girl."
"I wanted to be the kind of actress who had long flowing hair and kissed boys," Kidman admitted to the crowd. "Today I know better. Jane, if you’re out there, I’m ready to don a shower cap and kiss any woman in the room." The actress made good on the promise later, donning and shower cap and locking lips with fellow Aussie, Naomi Watts!
Stepping out of her comfort zone for Moulin Rouge paid off, as Kidman scored a best actress Oscar nomination in 2001. She’ll soon be taking another career risk, shifting from the big screen to the stage.
"I'm about to go do a play in London, which is once again pushing me out of my comfort zone," Kidman told ET. "Which, everyone's like, 'why are you doing that?' I suppose I like the 'jumping off the cliff' feeling."
