They say artists can be their own worst critics, and that’s definitely the case with Nicole Kidman. In a recent interview she spoke candidly about her disappointment with her performance in “Australia.”
The “Moulin Rouge” actress says it was hard for her to even watch the movie, and only attended the premiere in order to support her director/friend Baz Luhrman.
She told press, "I don't usually see my films, but because of Baz I had to see it. I saw Moulin Rouge. I've really only seen that and this in my whole career. It gets worse as I get older."
And at the Sydney premiere she says she squirmed in her seat. "I sat there, and I looked at Keith [Urban] and went, 'Am I any good in this movie?' I can't look at this movie and be proud of what I've done."
Following the premiere, "We ran because I didn't want to read anything. I didn't want to know. I saw my sister and my family and we saw Keith's family and then we were straight on a plane."
A critical and commercial flop, “Australia” has only brought in $47 million in America since its premiere back in November.
