Kidman reveals all on Kubrick
Wednesday 14 July 1999
Ms Kidman broke down when telling reporters of the pressure she and her husband, Tom Cruise, suffered in the 18-month filming schedule. The film, premiered in Hollywood last night, stars Cruise and Kidman as a couple dealing with sexual obsession and jealousy.
The actress admitted their casting meant the film contained an "element of voyeurism". She added: "We shot a lot I wouldn't do for any other director. Kubrick wanted it almost pornographic. When we read the script, we were both nervous because you're dealing with a subject matter that is quite dangerous. Even Stanley was frightened of making the movie when he first read the novel." The film is based on Traumnovelle by Arthur Schnitzler, about a woman who admits near-infidelity to her husband and wakens a new sexuality.
Kubrick, who made A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Dr Strangelove, among others, died in March.
