Nicole Kidman is dying to do comedy
BEVERLY HILLS (AP) — Pratfalls, gags, or dry wit, Nicole Kidman says she’d love to give them a shot.
The Oscar-winner says she never gets offered comedic roles and she’d like to change that.
“They always say I’m not funny,” said Kidman Saturday at a panel for TV critics to talk about her upcoming role in the second installment of SundanceTV’s “Top of the Lake.”
The 50-year-old actress said she’s at a point in her life where she’s eager to try anything and isn’t wor- ried about failure.
“I’m willing to fall on my face, I’m willing to get back up again. I want to keep trying.” she said.
She also added that she’s learning about comedy from her nine-year-old daughter with her husband Keith Urban, whom she’s “sure has Lucille Ball in her.”
Speaking to a group of reporters after the panel, Kidman said she grew up watching comedy shows like “I Love Lucy” and her father was a fan of the satirical MAD Magazine.
