Nicole Kidman Slams Her ‘Australia’ Performance

    Nicole Kidman is not a fan of her own work, at least when it comes to watching herself in her recent movie “Australia.”

    The Aussie star recently told Sydney radio station 2dayFM, “I can’t look at this movie and be proud of what I’ve done. I sat there, and I looked at Keith and went, ‘Am I any good in this movie?’” as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald.

    “But I thought Brandon Walters and Hugh Jackman were wonderful. It’s just impossible for me to connect to it emotionally at all,” she continued.

    “I don’t usually see my films, but because of [director] Baz [Luhrmann] I had to see it. I saw ‘Moulin Rouge,’” she explained. “I’ve really only seen that and this in my whole career. It gets worse as I get older.”

    Nicole was so unsure about her performance, that she fled her home country following production of the film.

    “We ran because I didn’t want to read anything. I didn’t want to know,” Nicole added. “I saw my sister and my family and we saw Keith’s family and then we were straight on a plane.”

    “Australia” has grossed $47 million domestically since opening in November.
