Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood star Ni­cole Kidman (left) said she wants to do more films in which she gets the chance to use her Aus­tralian ac­cent more of­ten. The 50-year-old ac­tor, who plays a woman called Yvonne in her up­com­ing film The Up­side, said the char­ac­ter was orig­i­nally Amer­i­can, but she de­cided to give it an Aus­tralian spin, re­ported Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald news­pa­per.

“In my next film, I got to use my own ac­cent again, some­thing I want to do more of. I said, ‘I think she’d be bet­ter as an Aus­tralian’ and Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston looked at me weirdly, as the role was writ­ten as an Amer­i­can, but (pro­ducer) Har­vey We­in­stein said, ‘Yep, she’s Aus­tralian,’” Kidman said.

The Academy Award­win­ning ac­tor added she would love to work in her home coun­try.
