Nicole Kidman's look for Destroyer grabs eyeballs

The film, directed by Karyn Kusama, stars the actor as a Los Angeles police officer named Erin Bell

Published: 23rd August 2018

Nicole Kidman has ditched her usual glamorous Hollywood look. She will be seen as a 'real middle-aged woman' for her role in Destroyer.

The Oscar-winning actor, 51, appeared gaunt and weary in the first photograph from her upcoming film.

The film, directed by Karyn Kusama, stars Kidman as a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) police officer named Erin Bell. The story tells how Bell went undercover as a young woman with a criminal gang and still faces the traumatic events 20 years later.

In an interview, Kusama said she had a clear vision of how she wanted Kidman to look for the role. "We always knew that we wanted her to look like a real middle-aged woman with a past that she wears on her face. With sun damage, sleep deprivation, stress and rage, just in her whole physical body," said the filmmaker, adding that the actor hates being in the make-up chair.
