Ni­cole Kid­man is dy­ing to do com­edy

The Korea Times - - CULTURE -

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.
