Must See 16/10/2020

Despite Nicole Kidman having an uber successful career that spans decades in Hollywood, there is one role that she really wished she didn't miss out on.

The role was for the iconic film Notting Hill and would have seen her starring alongside the one and only Hugh Grant.

While Anna Scott was played by the beautiful Julia Roberts in the end, we could definetly see Australian superstar Nicole playing her.

Nicole spilled the beans to Hugh Grant during an interview they had arranged with Marie Claire to discuss their new show, The Undoing.

The pair were reminiscing on how they had known each since they were in their twenties when Nicole Kidman dropped the bombshell: 

“I really wanted the role that Julia Roberts played in Notting Hill.”

“Did you?” Grant asked. 

“Yeah, I did. But I wasn’t well known enough, and I wasn’t talented enough… So, finally our paths aligned,” the publication reported.
