    The actress denied the rumours surrounding the late filmmaker

    The movie was an erotic psychodrama that starred herself alongside then-husband Tom Cruise and was about a married couple whose relationship was put to the test by various affairs. Her role as Alice Hardford required nudity, and Kidman said that Kubrick gave her the final say over on whether to proceed with the scene or not.

    “When I went to work with Stanley Kubrick, he was like, ‘I’m going to want full frontal nudity’, and I was like, ‘Ahh, I don’t know,’” Kidman said. “So we came up with a great agreement, which was contractual. He would show me the scenes with the nudity before they made it into the film. Then I could feel completely safe. I didn’t say no to any of it. I’d wanted to make sure that it wasn’t going to be me standing there nude and everyone laughing at me. I was protected, so I got to explore a complicated marriage and the way in which Tom’s character is having those jealous images.”

    She continue about Kubrick and how they would be in his office and talk, or watch animal videos. “He said animals were so much nicer than human beings. Though I do remember we were watching a wildlife thing where you saw the lion going after an antelope and he could hardly watch it. Interesting, isn’t it?”

    Kidman’s next role will be as the lead in HBO’s new limited series The Undoing.
