Joel Edgerton Says Everything Nicole Kidman Did in 'Boy Erased' was 'Worth Putting The Movie'

Joel Edgerton has nothing but praise for his Boy Erased co-star and leading lady, Nicole Kidman!

“On a work level, everything that Nicole does is worth putting in the movie,” the 44-year-old actor, who wrote the screenplay, starred in and directed the movie, recently expressed.

“I remember one day thinking, ‘Nicole probably thinks I’m terrible because I don’t say anything to her.’ And so I said to her, ‘I just want you to know that if I’m not saying anything to you in-between takes it’s just because what you do always hits the centre of the dartboard. I don’t want you to think that I don’t have anything to say to you’,” Joel added. “And she said, ‘No, you should tell me things still, I want people to direct me.’”

Joel Edgerton Says He Hopes 'Boy Erased' Becomes 'Redundant'

Joel Edgerton is dapper in a suit while attending the Australian premiere of his film Boy Erased held at the Event Cinemas George Street on Monday (October 15) in Sydney, Australia.

The 44-year-old actor not only stars in the movie, he also wrote and directed it. The story follows the son of a Baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program after being forcibly outed to his parents.

“You always hope your films will live forever,” Joel expressed at the premiere. “But I kind of hope Boy Erased is a redundant movie. It would be great if it was redundant now or in a year, or in five years time that there’s no point even watching this movie. That it’s a museum piece.”

“You definitely need laws to protect people,” Joel continued. “Beyond that, legislation doesn’t shift personal opinion… There are laws that say you can protect the rights of LGBTQ people yet people still infringe upon that so I think it’s about awareness and understanding. All change happens slowly but walking back freedom laws under the banner of religion sends out the wrong message.”
