Nicole Kidman opens up about controversial role request
HollywoodNews.com: Nicole Kidman took on a racy and complicated role in the upcoming film ‘The Paperboy,’ but there was one thing about it that she had to say no to.
Kidman was reportedly asked to use the ‘N’ word in the film, but she refused to go there, states UsMagazine.com. “I just didn’t feel it was right for the character. I have a son [Connor Cruise] who is African American. I just didn’t feel like it was right. What I try to do as an actor is fulfill a director’s vision. I have opinions, but at the same time I’m not there to stop him from anything. I’ve really tried to do that in every film. I never want to pull them off their vision,” Kidman said about her struggle to refuse to say the word.
However, considering some of the other things she does for the role, including having telepathic sex, it seems it was all enough.
Do you think she’ll be good in the role?
