Nicole Kidman Details 'Enormous Amount of Stress' Filming 'Nine Perfect Strangers' During Pandemic

“There’s an enormous amount of stress being responsible for people’s safety and health,” Nicole shared with Sydney Morning Herald.

“We took that really seriously,” Nicole continued. There was testing, mask wearing and if someone had a sore throat — even if the test came back negative — we rescheduled, or we shut down. We couldn’t put anyone at risk. And we got through without one case, which is extraordinary.”

Nicole went on to admit that if she and the other producers knew about all the stress they would face while shooting the show, Nine Perfect Strangers may not have happened.

“I don’t think we realized what we were taking on,” Nicole explained. “If we’d known how high the risk was in terms of the whole thing being shut down and being destroyed like that, I don’t think the financiers would have taken the risk. We kind of played Russian roulette in that way.”

In a previous interview, Nicole joked that she was “bats–t crazy” while getting into character for the show.

Nine Perfect Strangers will be premiering on Hulu on August 18th. Check out the trailer here!
