Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, who stars as a villain in the new Paddington Bear film, says she is happy to play “the bad girl”. The 47-year-old Australian actress said she loved the witch in 1993 American musical fantasy film ‘The Wizard Of Oz’, reported Sky News.
“Well obviously, I was the kid that loved the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz, so of course I grew up to be the girl who wants to play the villain in a movie. I’m always happy to play the bad girl. I just get to have fun, and it’s obviously all done with a smile,” Kidman said.
‘Paddington’, directed by Paul King, sees Kidman as Millicent, a sinister taxidermist with her eye on the beloved animal. The film opens in cinemas on Friday, 28 November.
