Nicole Kidman's daughters are her 'hardest critics'
Nicole Kidman’s young daughters have no interest in watching their mother on the big screen.
The Aussie actress admitted that 13-year old Sunday and 10-year-old Faith haven’t seen her highly anticipated Amazon film, “Being the Ricardos.”
“They actually have no interest right now,” Kidman — who plays Lucille Ball in the film — told Page Six at the Jazz at Lincoln Center premiere on Thursday.
“I’m like, ‘You wanna come watch it’ And they’re like, ‘No,'” the 54-year-old said, adding that the pair were her “hardest critics.”
Kidman, who stars opposite Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz in the Aaron Sorkin-penned script, revealed that initially she was eager to take on the role but then she became, “really terrified” and thought, “Oh God, what have I said yes to?”
And it appears that the “Moulin Rouge” star was smart to overcome those initial jitters. Her performance is winning raves and is expected to net her a fifth Oscar nomination.
Kidman told us the toughest part of playing the comedy icon was nailing her deep voice.
“It was hard,” she explained. “It was out of reach, I mean there were times when I was like, ‘I don’t think I’m going to get there, this is going to be like egg on my face.'”
And the “Big Little Lies” star who’s used to starring in difficult dramas is finding it a novel experience doing pratfalls.
“There’s nothing like making people laugh,” she exclaimed. “That’s not a normal thing for me, I want more of that!”
