Washington (ANI): Actress Nicole Kidman has bought a cattle ranch in Australia after being inspired from a movie role. For her role in Australia, the Oscar-winner had to herd cows. Kidman, whose co-star in the movie is Hugh Jackman, insisted that despite her initial reservations about the gruelling stunts, she now loves the lifestyle so much she has bought her own ranch.
"I was terrified beforehand. I even had to learn how to cut cattle. But once you master it it's so much fun. Now I can crack a whip, herd cattle, cut cattle out of the herd, which is amazing. I can't believe I can do it," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"I've bought a company out in the country outside of Sydney. We don't have to muster them though, because there's only 40. They are basically on the property to keep the grass short," she added.
