Nicole Kidman has been at the top of Hollywood A-list actresses for a couple of decades now, but the next award season could be her biggest yet, thanks to “Big Little Lies.”
Well, BLL and every other movie she has coming out this year, but really, fans so deeply connected with Kidman’s Celeste in the female-centered HBO drama, it’s all anyone can talk about.
Celeste is in a deeply abusive relationship and Kidman actually got hurt during filming. On top of that, even though the abuse was shot for a TV shot, she says it was deeply humiliating.
Kidman told W Magazine, “I felt very exposed and vulnerable and deeply humiliated at times. But at times I would have flashes of images of women that have gone through this and I’m like, ‘This is authentic, this is the truth and this is what I have to do.'”
For his part, Kidman’s husband Keith Urban has also said he had a hard time watching the show.
