NI­COLE Kid­man (above) has opened up about feel­ing “ex­posed and deeply hu­mil­i­ated” while play­ing an abuse vic­tim in minis­eries Big Lit­tle Lies.

She re­vealed that, be­tween takes of a par­tic­u­larly “dif­fi­cult” scene along­side Alexan­der Skars­gard as her vi­o­lent hus­band, she would stay ly­ing on the floor “ba­si­cally naked in half-torn un­der­wear”.

Kid­man said of the film­ing: “At times it felt dan­ger­ous and re­ally up­set­ting ... it af­fected me in a deep way. Big

Lit­tle Lies for me was so com­pli­cated and that’s what was so beau­ti­ful about it.”

Kid­man also re­vealed in the in­ter­view with a US mag­a­zine that she suf­fered “de­bil­i­tat­ing” stage fright at times.
