Nicole Kidman Wants To Utilize Her Australian Accent More in Hollywood!

Nicole Kidman is opening up about wanting the opportunity to use her Australian accent more in her films.

“In my next film [The Upside] I got to use my own accent again, something I want to do more of. I said, ‘I think she’d be better as an Australian’ and Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston looked at me weirdly, as the role was written as an American, but Harvey Weinstein [producer and film studio boss] said, ‘Yep, she’s Australian’,” the 50-year-old actress told the Sydney Morning Herald while attending the premiere of her latest series Top of the Lake: China Girl held at Sydney Opera House on Monday (August 1) in Sydney.

“I would like to. I love being here and being apart of this industry. I love being able to use my own accent,” Nicole added. “I got off the plane and I came to rehearsal and I just felt so at ease and relaxed and at home. We have good food, good conversation, then we rehearsed and played rigorously.”

Nicole was joined at the premiere by creator Jane Campion, as well as co-stars Alice Englert, Lincoln Vickery, Clayton Jacobson, director Ariel Kleiman and writer Gerard Lee.

FYI: Nicole is wearing a Zuhair Murad couture gown. Alice is wearing an Acne Studios dress.

    When did Harvey enter the picture again? She’s 50 and he’s 62, aren’t they little old to be playing games? Come on Nicole, you’re supposed to be a mother and a wife; if not, let Keith take the kids and find someone to fill that role.

    Back to your playing ignorant again, MzLiz?! As the article says, Harvey Weinstein is the film’s PRODUCER, as he is on a LOT of films! They’ve been FRIENDS for 30 YEARS, yet someone like you and fan27 twist and spin anything you can latch onto. Jealousy looks stupid on both of you!

    Joy…Leave me out of it!!! You are the ignorant one…And SO obsessed with ME…What a shame the truth eludes YOU!

  • Joy

    Don’t flatter yourself, STALKER27! Not one single person is “obsessed” with the likes of YOU! Your “1urbanfan27″ aka “Sunni Sheriff” aka “breathingmusic72″ persona would never be missed if you floated off the internet and disappeared! It’s YOU who stays OBSESSED with Keith, and YOU PROVE IT daily! You smear your BS all over his Twitter feed every hour that you aren’t at work or chasing him all over Nashville. Gawd, no wonder he rarely spends much time there! All anyone needs to do is to type your username into Google or Bing and you pop up all over the place, pleading for attention from Keith, spreading your lies and ripping on his marriage and life! All the while, he’s in Australia with his family, or in the Bahamas on vacation with his family, or on tour– none of which ever includes YOU! Take your own advice– “What a shame the TRUTH eludes YOU!!!!”

    Flatter myself?…lol YOU flatter yourself…If you think for one lousy minute that I give a crap about what YOU think…YOU ARE obviously obsessed with me…That’s why you can’t help but mention me all the time…You stalk my every word…And the truth ELUDES YOU…You have No idea where he is…At ANY given time…Like all the little sycophants (Which he said were NOT helpful), you believe what you want to…But the truth is still the truth…ALL the truth…Not just some of it…I spread nothing but the truth of my experience…And you don’t have a clue to most of it…SO…STOP using ANY part of my name…LEAVE me out of your BS…And I don’t have to plead for attention…I already have it…The one I want…And you OBVIOUSLY pay attention… :)

  • 1urbanfan27

    lol. at “chasing him” all over Nashville…There are some that do…Maybe you included…Most likely YOU don’t live here…But you wish you did…THIS is MY home…I’ll go where I want…When I want…Especially when invited…And you can pound sand Joy and just “imagine” what that REALLY means…

  • 1urbanfan27

    Oh yeah “joy”…lol…I’m NEVER going anywhere…I’m HERE to stay…

    Was it just me that thought her emmy acceptance speech sounded like a mash up of Aussie and Boston accent?
