Nicole Kidman Says She Refused To Use Racial Slur In Her Latest Movie
Hollyweird actress and first ex-wife of actor Tom Cruise says she took a stand against using the ‘N’ word, when asked to do so in her latest film, out of respect for her adopted teenage son Connor, who is black.
The Huffington Post reports that Nicole told reporters at a press conference during the New York Film Festival that using the slur “didn’t feel right for the character,” before adding:
“I have a son who’s African-American and I just didn’t feel it was right,” the actress added. “It wasn’t right.”
Good for her. Do you think her son would have cared if his mother used the slur in a movie role?
