Melbourne, (ANI): Actress Nicole Kidman says she"s terrified of singing and has to be coaxed into it. The Oscar winner, who has previously released duets with her Moulin Rouge! costar Ewan McGregor and British singer Robbie Williams, says she is not a natural singer who can easily perform in front of a crowd and had to cajoled into performing for a crowd while filming her new musical movie Nine.
"I was terrified of it," the Daily Telegraph quoted Kidman as telling Britain"s Empire magazine. "I am not a natural singer in the sense that I don"t love getting up in front of a group of people and just belting out a tune. It needs to be coaxed out of me because I want my voice to tell a story and sometimes it doesn"t have the capacity to do that.
"When Nine director Rob Marshall approached me, he told me a role had been written especially. He told me he wanted her to look like a goddess and I was a little overwhelmed by that," she added.
