ABUSE SCENES LEFT ME HUMILATED: NI­COLE

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Ni­cole Kid­man (above) is happy that her show, Big Lit­tle Lies has opened the con­ver­sa­tion on spousal abuse.

The 50-year-old, who played an abused house­wife on the TV show, hopes it will help peo­ple, who are in her char­ac­ter’s sit­u­a­tion, re­ported Fe­male­first. She said, “I’m glad that it sort of pulled the veil off. I’ve re­ceived the most amaz­ing emails from peo­ple say­ing I now un­der­stand why women stay or why peo­ple stay with an abuser, and if that changes one per­son’s life, that’s amaz­ing for me.”

She says she was left feel­ing “ex­posed and hu­mil­i­ated at times” dur­ing film­ing the show. “I re­mem­ber ly­ing on the floor in the bath­room at the very end when we were do­ing the scenes in episode 7, and I was ly­ing on the floor and I just wouldn’t get up in-be­tween takes. I was ly­ing there, sort of bro­ken, and I re­mem­ber, at one point, JeanMarc (di­rec­tor) com­ing over and plac­ing a towel over me be­cause I was ly­ing there in half-torn un­der­wear and on the ground with noth­ing on,” she said to W mag­a­zine.
