Nicole Kidman sweltering up the display in The Paperboy at Cannes fair

WITH two much-hyped premieres behind her, Australian Nicole Kidman is this year's Queen of Cannes.And tonight she is up for the best actress award for her role in The Paperboy which could also take out the film festival's top prize."I had not seen The Paperboy and I now see why it is controversial," Kidman told The Sunday Telegraph.
The 44-year-old mother of four is talking about the steamy Deep South thriller in which she plays a bottle-blonde nymphomaniac who indulges in a graphic act of auto-eroticism with a prisoner and has bruising sex on top of a washing machine.

In one scene, she also urinates - in close-up - on former Disney star Zac Efron after he is stung by a jellyfish."I wanted to go try something and be dangerous and try to shake it up," said Kidman, who watched the film for the first time at the Cannes premiere with husband Keith Urban by her side.

"Because I'm in a place where I want to stimulate myself, you know, and so that film was stimulating to me."I was down in New Orleans, I was working with John Cusack, I was working with Zac Efron, and Lee (Daniels, the director) is a force to be reckoned with, he's on fire," she said.
There's more hot-and-bothered sex in Hemingway & Gellhorn, the second Kidman movie to have its world premiere this week.As the famed war correspondent Martha Gellhorn, she bares all in a number of explicit sex scenes with Clive Owen's Ernest Hemingway. The HBO production will air on Foxtel's Showcase in Australia on September 9.
"Both films are controversial I suppose,"Kidman said.
Meanwhile, Kylie Minogue shed her pop-pixie mantle for a role in the weird and rapturously received French indie Holy Motors, while the sparkly Australian musical The Sapphires received a 10-minute standing ovation at its premiere here.
