Kidman Blasts Biographer
LATEST: Nicole Kidman is furious with a US film critic for writing a unauthorised biography on her after only having one brief phone chat with her. The Moulin Rouge star was shocked when she found out DAVID THOMSON was writing a book and was unaware her short interview would be exploited in the form of an explosive biography. Kidman claims she was deceived by the author, who told her he was writing a series of articles on several different films. According to Kidman's publicist, Wendy Day, "Nicole has never met David Thomson. She has only spoken to him briefly on the phone about her acting processes and various films. "He's a well-respected film writer and she accepted the interview only because she was under the impression he was writing a series of film essays." The book, entitled NICOLE KIDMAN, hit bookstores in the US this week (beg04SEP06) and paints a picture of the actress as a power-hungry fame seeker who used her 10-year marriage to Tom Cruise to hit the big time in Hollywood. The biography also claims the star is too self-obsessed to give herself to a husband. Kidman married country star Keith Urban in June (06). Thomson even goes as far as to suggest Stanley Kubrick's 1999 thriller Eyes Wide Shut ended Cruise and Kidman's marriage because it mirrored their off-screen relationship too closely. Kidman has not yet announced legal action against Thomson, who in his previous book, THE WHOLE EQUATION: A HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD, confessed to having a huge crush on her.
