Nicole Kidman has opened up about her role in Stanley Kubrick’s final film, Eyes Wide Shut, in which she starred with her then-husband Tom Cruise.

In an article for The Hollywood Reporter, Kidman says she had to be ‘coaxed’ into doing the kinky sex scenes with Cruise.

Nicole – now a mother of two with husband Keith Urban – says she struggled with some of the sexual aspects of the movie – and revealed some of the more extreme footage was left on the cutting room floor.

She described how Kubrick had to ‘coax’ her ‘into some of the sexuality in the film in the beginning, but says she never felt it was ‘exploitive or unintelligent’.

Kidman wrote: ‘He [Kubrick] was very different with women than he was with men. He has daughters, so he was very paternal with me.’

Kidman explained how the director tried to base the sexual thriller about a troubled married couple on her real-life relationship with Cruise.

She concedes he effectively failed in getting them to do so – saying while they realised that was his intention, the characters they played were ‘not really us’.

Kidman also denied that the 1999 film contributed to the demise of her marriage to Cruise. The couple divorced just two years after the movie was released.
