At a recent press-conference for the New York Film festival, Australian southerner Nicole Kidman revealed there are some things that, as a mother, one simply does not do.
You can pee on Zac Efron until you can't pee no more, then chug down a Gatorade and do it all over again.
You can mime giving a blowjob to John Cusack until the cows cum (home).
You cannot say the n-word on Camera.
All three were actions Kidman was asked to perform as part of her role in The Paperboy, out tomorrow, or, as it is popularly known, The Movie Where Nicole Kidman Pees on Zac Efron.
The L.A. Times write-up of the press conference notes that Kidman looked "slightly annoyed" as director Lee Daniels "recounted his puzzlement" over the fact that she refused to call a black co-star the N-word for a scene, despite the fact that she is, as evidenced by her free flowing urine and her stint at Le Moulin Rouge, a real easy breezy goodtime gal.
"I didn't feel like it was right for the character. I have a son who's African American and I just didn't feel it was right. It wasn't right."
Eventually, Daniels relented and Kidman was allowed to film the scene without the slur.
A victory for easy breezy goodtime gals with standards.
