Lucie Arnaz Defends Nicole Kidman Starring as Her Mom Lucille Ball in 'Being The Ricardos'

Lucie Arnaz is opening up about the controversy of Nicole Kidman playing her mother, Lucille Ball, in a biopic.

The now 69-year-old daughter of Lucille and Desi Arnaz, addressed the issues about Nicole‘s casting after seeing fans’ outcry over the situation.

If you didn’t see, Nicole will be starring as Lucille in Aaron Sorkin‘s Being the Ricardos, which is set for Amazon.

The movie will reportedly focus on when Lucy and Desi face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage. See who will play Desi here!

“It’s a done deal,” Lucie shared on a Facebook through a video message. “The contracts aren’t actually signed, which is why I haven’t said anything publicly about it, but I felt I should just at least try to calm the waters here.”

She added, “There seems to be a lot of discussion about Nicole Kidman. It should be Debra Messing. It should be Carole Cook, I don’t know…Here’s the deal. You should understand. We are not doing a remake of I Love Lucy. No one has to impersonate Lucy Ricardo nor do the Vitameatavegamin routine, or the chocolate factory routine or any of the silly things. It’s the story of Lucille Ball, my actual mother, not Lucy Ricardo, and her husband, Desi Arnaz, my dad, not Ricky Ricardo.”

“There will be humor in the film, but it is a story of the two of them and how they met and what went right with finding the show, what went wrong, their relationship, their love affair,” Lucie shared.

Debra Messing did campaign for the role, shortly after it was announced that Nicole was in talks for the role.

One fan tweeted saying that they’re choose to believe that Debra was unavailable for the project. She responded by saying, “Oh no, I’m available.”

Another fan tweeted a quote that Debra said last year about how she used to say, “I would not even touch that. Like she is untouchable.” In response to that, Debra said, “Ummmmmm, I changed my mind. 😜.”

The upcoming movie will be set during one production week of I Love Lucy which was a Monday table read through Friday audience filming schedule. It will focus on when Lucy and Desi face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage. Javier Bardem is in talks to play Desi Arnaz and the movie will be written and directed by Aaron Sorkin.

Now, the Oscar-winning actress is opening up about the “disturbing” effect the show had on her life because of how she “becomes” the characters she plays.

Nicole talked with actor Marc Maron on the podcast WTF With Marc Maron.

“Even on The Undoing it kind of happened where I just like suddenly was in this place of… There was sort of a disquietness to my personality, where I was uneasy and there was duress on who I was,” Nicole said (via E! News).

Nicole also opened up about becoming “really sick” while making the show.

“I went down for a week, because your immune system it doesn’t know the difference between acting and truth when you’re doing them,” she said.

Nicole says she believes that lots of actors can train their bodies to know they are just acting. “It doesn’t really work for me,” she said about her own process. When she leaves a set, she often isn’t able to sleep and doesn’t feel well. She said, “It’s that disturbing for me.”

It was just announced that Nicole will be playing one of the most iconic actresses of all time for an upcoming movie.

As for the kissing? “Wow. I loved it. I was so proud. I think of it as my first kiss,” she gushed.

“Whether it’s my eyes, or my mouth, or my boobs or my vagina, my body is just another tool to express myself. It’s still me.

“She’s been my favorite actress since I was a little girl. It’s something that just doesn’t happen to [citizens from my hometown in Italy],” she said.
