Funny roles are not without risk. Nicole Kidman, who will soon be seen as the TV legend Lucille Ball, also knows this.
Los Angeles – Hollywood star Nicole Kidman said she wanted to give up her role as American comedy icon Lucille Ball because of strong self-doubt.
“When the reality of playing it hit me, I thought,” What did I say? “, Said the 54-year-old on the US talk show” Live with Kelly and Ryan “. “Then I thought,” Oh no, I’m not right. Everyone thinks I don’t fit. That’s why I want to try to get out of there. “
However, producer Todd Black and director Aaron Sorkin (screenplay for “The Social Network”) have refused to step down from Ball’s role, Kidman said. “Thank God, because I was so grateful that I was allowed to fall in love with her.”
In the biopic “Being the Ricardos” Kidman and her colleague Javier Bardem can be seen as TV stars of the 1950s. Bardem plays Ball’s husband, Desi Arnaz. Ball and Arnaz were the stars of the hit sitcom “I Love Lucy” about the everyday life of an ordinary married couple. dpa
