Kidman denies being embarrassed by her performance in AustraliaJanuary 13th, 2009 - 2:58 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Jan 13 (ANI): Hollywood actor Nicole Kidman has denied that she was embarrassed by her performance in Baz Luhrmann’’s epic Australia.
Last week Britain’’s Daily Mail quoted Kidman saying in a November 21 interview with a Sydney radio station that she “squirmed in her seat”, couldn”t “connect emotionally at all with it”, and “ran” from the expected bad reviews.
The interview damaged the film’’s reputation and turned into an Internet phenomenon over the weekend with Kidman portrayed as agreeing with her fiercest critics about her role in the WWII outback epic.
However, a spokeswoman for Kidman said that the Daily Mail report misrepresented what the 41-year-old actor had said.
“It’’s quite ridiculous for anyone to believe the reports if they listened to the actual interview. It’’s hard to believe some of the world’’s media have fallen for it,” the Daily Telegraph quoted her, as saying.
According to the rep, Kidman meant that she always gets embarrassed to see herself on screen.
Australia, a film four years in the making, has been panned by critics and had disappointing sales around the world. (ANI)
