Goode: Kidman doesn't act like star

Nicole Kidman is very down to earth, her co-star Matthew Goode has revealed

Nicole Kidman is "completely lovely", Matthew Goode has revealed.

The 34-year-old actor shares screen time with the Australian actress in Park Chan-Wook's thriller Stoker, which also stars Mia Wasikowska, and said she is really down-to-earth.

"She's such a big star, you know, and has been for such a long time. You go with preconceptions like, 'I wonder if she's going to be starry?' And actually she's nothing like that. She's completely lovely. I just haven't got a bad word to say about her," he said.

The Dancing On The Edge actor, who lives in Kent with long-term girlfriend Sophie Dymoke and their four-year-old daughter Matilda, revealed that the Goode family would often get together with Nicole, her husband Keith Urban and their children.

"We were filming in Nashville, which is her home, so I think we were quite lucky to see her in such a relaxed state. She showed us around and on Halloween our kids went to a pumpkin patch together," he said.

He would also go out with Mia: "I love Mia - she is talented but also really good fun. She's kind of like my little sister. We used to go out - I had my missus and my family over when we were making this, and we always used to get a babysitter and then go out, listen to country and western music and get drunk."

:: Stoker is in cinemas now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
