Nicole Kidman Squirmed When She Saw Australia

It’s not every day that you hear about an actor publicly criticizing their own work! But Nicole Kidman has come forward and agreed with the many critics who didn’t love her performance in her recent movie Australia.

In an interview with Sydney’s radio station 2day FM, she said, "I can't look at this movie and be proud of what I've done.” She went on to say that she felt uncomfortable at Sunday’s premiere in Sydney. She told them, "I sat there, and I looked at Keith and went, 'Am I any good in this movie?’”

But Nicole’s not dragging her co-stars down with her. She was quick to add, "But I thought Brandon Walters and Hugh Jackman were wonderful. It's just impossible for me to connect to it emotionally at all."

But this harsh self-assessment could be because Nicole isn’t used to seeing herself on the big screen. She says, "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."

It sounds like Nicole suffers from the same self-consciousness everyone has and it’s nice to hear that she’s actually human, and can admit to having faults! Did you see the movie? Is Nicole as bad as she thinks in it?
