Nicole Kidman is an Oscar winning actress who is not afraid to do nude scenes, but she draws the line at saying the N-word for a role.
“I just didn't feel it was right for the character," she said at a press conference for her upcoming film The Paperboy. "I have a son who is African American. I just didn't feel like it was right. What I try to do as an actor is fulfill a director’s vision. I have opinions, but at the same time I'm not there to stop him from anything. I've really tried to do that in every film. I never want to pull them off their vision."
Lee Daniels, the director of the film, explained what happened when he tried to get her to use the offensive word.
“I asked her to use the N-word. I could feel the racial tension there in the town. She said, 'I won't do it.' I told my producer, 'She won't do it!' Then he mapped it out -- 'Lee, day one she is on a washing machine, day two she is urinating on Zac Efron, day three she's having telepathic sex . . . I think you can forgive her."
