Wow. Nicole Kidman just threw a grenade and burned some serious bridges. It isn't like she was getting a lot of work anyway. With her outrageous fee for a film and her history of turning any project into a glorious bust, the last thing she needs to do is tick the people off who might give her a job in the future.
Nicole was on a radio program in Sydney talking about the movie Australia. She told the station, “I can't look at this movie and be proud of what I've done.” She then went on to say that she never has seen herself in any movie except Australia and Moulin Rouge which is a lie because I guarantee you Tom made her watch Far And Away with her. Guarantee it.
“I don't usually see my films, but because of Baz I had to see it,” she said. “I saw Moulin Rouge. I've really only seen that and this in my whole career. It gets worse as I get older.”
It gets worse for all of us Nicole. She did praise Hugh Jackman and Brandon Walters but said she could not connect to the film at all. When an actress says something like that, they are blaming the director. Baz is the guy who has actually given her work when no one else seems to want to. He probably fought for her and paid her outrageous fee when everyone else probably laughed and now she is throwing him under a bus.
Good luck ever working with him again or anyone else. It isn't like she isn't used to movies tanking, but I guess someone finally explained to her that maybe she was the reason they were tanking and so she needed to blame someone else so the money train would keep rolling. So, she decided to blame Baz. Nice. If the movie had made Titanic money she would have been thrilled with her performance and wondered where in the hell her Oscar nomination was. The best thing that could happen is Baz goes and makes another movie that does Titanic money with a different leading lady and Nicole is forced to do Days Of Thunder 2.
