Vulture did an interview with Nicole and talked with her about the decision to play Celeste and the work she is doing on her series Big Little Lies.

Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman didn’t realize what being on a popular TV show would be like. On the Philadelphia set of her new film, Untouchable, Big Little Lies is all anyone wants to chat with her about around set. “The crew is always coming up and going, ‘Tell me about this! Tell me about that!’ and wanting to talk about the relationships and dissect the scenes,” she says. “I’ve never been in that before. That’s the beauty of TV. I just go, ‘Well, wait till next week.’ It’s really such a new place for me to be in. I love it.”

Kidman, an executive producer on the HBO adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel, optioned the book with her friend Reese Witherspoon, who also stars in and executive produces the series. She plays Celeste Wright — a gorgeous, wealthy wife and mother caught up in a vicious cycle of domestic abuse. With only one episode of the mini-series left to air, Kidman spoke to Vulture about the emotional and physical challenges of the role; working with Alexander Skarsgård, who plays her husband; and why it was hard to say good-bye to a production with so many women in leading roles.

When you and Reese decided to option the book and move ahead with the project, did you know right away that you would play Celeste?
Liane, the author, wanted me to play Celeste, so it wasn’t discussed. It just naturally fell into that place.

And how did you feel about that? Was that the character that you wanted to play?
As an actress, we can read something and feel it, and in this case I could feel probably all of the women, which is a great thing. But I suppose Celeste was the most natural fit for me, just because I could feel her pulsating off the page. Then, as David E. Kelley started to write it, he wrote it specifically for me, so it started to have its own voice. It’s a strange thing because in the book, yes, I could feel her very powerfully. Liane did such a great job of capturing that marriage and that relationship. But David started to mold it, and then I would work with David molding things as well, and with [director] Jean-Marc [Vallée]. I did an enormous amount of research, and I also approach things viscerally. So as much as there was an intellectual approach, this character was incredibly visceral.

Miller most recently wrote and directed Maggie’s Plan. CAA reps her, Carell is with WME and Media Four, Schumer’s at UTA and B Company and Kidman with CAA and Media Talent Group.

Vulture gives us a look at how Nicole prepared to play Celeste on Big Little Lies and the domestic abuse aspect of the story.

Nicole Kidman is having a hard time shaking her Big Little Lies character. Nine months after production ended, the Oscar winner and first-time TV star’s voice quavers when discussing the filming of Celeste’s violent and highly sexual marriage to Perry (Alexander Skarsgård). “I feel weird talking about it,” she says over the phone from the Philadelphia set of Untouchable. “I’m not comfortable because I feel like I want the work to speak for itself, and I don’t like dissecting it too much. It’s one of the hardest roles I’ve had to talk about because I’m still very raw about it. It’s weird.”

Not when you consider the intensity of Celeste and Perry’s story line. From controlling Celeste’s schedule to pushing her around, grabbing her forcefully, and beating her, Perry is a classic abuser. And yet Celeste is, on some level, addicted to her husband’s rage and the sexual energy it unleashes between them, adding gray areas to an alarming domestic situation not usually examined in this way on television.

“The intention was to see how complex it is: to show how people lie about it, what it feels to go through it, and how painful it can be for the woman, who is the victim in this case,” Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallée said. “But [writer David E. Kelley] and I and all of our partners thought, Well, what if we try to care for this guy too? He is the perpetrator of the violence, but he is aware of it and sincerely wants to get rid of his demons. That’s why I think you wonder and go, My God, I see. I see. There’s a little spark of hope here and there. I wanted to try to touch people’s hearts.”

In this past Sunday night’s episode, “Once Bitten,” Perry attacks Celeste after he sees their kids’ toys strewn around their apartment. He beats her, almost suffocates her, then has sex with her, most of which the viewer learns as Celeste remembers it. “After we shot some of the really, really violent scenes, I was in a lot of pain myself. My body was,” recalls Kidman, who’s also an executive producer on the series. Except for one scene in the finale, which airs April 2, where a body double was used to help choreograph a fight, Kidman and Skarsgård filmed all of the violence themselves. “It was very strange. It wasn’t a good feeling,” she says. “But women go through this so I wanted to tap into the truth of it, and I wanted it to be as real as it could be. Afterwards I would just be quiet. I would go home and be quiet.”

Vallée purposefully let the violent scenes linger. “I wanted it to feel like, whoa, you don’t belong there,” he said. “You’re witnessing something that is hurting you and is tough. We rarely cut because I want to show what’s great about the storytelling and the acting.”
