Kidman: 'I was shy singing in Moulin Rouge! but not peeing on someone'

By
Nicole Kidman has revealed her stance on violence, sex - and weeing on people in films.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said of her urination scene in The Paperboy: "I just don't find urination shocking. I think I peed in the beginning of Eyes Wide Shut, too. But then, I don't find a lot of things shocking!

"Violence is a lot more shocking than sex - sex is primal. [Director] Lee Daniels had an obsession about shooting me from behind - he was obsessed with my ass!

"To me, that was so funny. He's hilarious, I love him. I'm drawn to Lee for his wild nature. I felt shy singing in Moulin Rouge! But peeing - no, not shy."

The 45-year-old actress said of film stars today: "I actually don't even know what a movie star is now - what is a movie star? When the best female part of the year is Claire Danes in Homeland, you know the game's changed.

"Maybe in the '50s, there was a far more particular idea for a movie star. But now that's all blurry - everything's more fluid."

On her ex-husband Tom Cruise's Scientology involvement, she said: "I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology.

"I have two children [adopted with Cruise] who are Scientologists - Connor, 17, and Isabella, 20, and I utterly respect their beliefs."

In the movie star's spare time, she admits to watching Homeland, Modern Family and her husband Keith Urban's show American Idol at their home in Sydney, their farm in Australia or their house in Nashville.

"I'm just a nice Southern girl! It's such an easy lifestyle. And it's more diverse than you'd expect. There's so much great music.

"The Black Keys go jogging past the restaurant Keith and I go to. We'll hang out with Jack White in the studio. And there's music in our house all the time - Keith plays harmonica, drums, banjo, piano and bass guitar.

"He has a strong will about his career, and so do I. We want each other to thrive and do what we love, and we never interfere in the other's career choices."
