Aaron Eckhart: Kidman cared for me

Aaron Eckhart

Aaron Eckhart says Nicole Kidman was "a joy" to work with.

The pair teamed up on 2010 small-budget film Rabbit Hole, for which Nicole received an Oscar nomination. The actor has reminisced about their time together on set, during which he had no problem ordering the actress around.

"I love Nicole and she was a joy to work with," Aaron told The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Sydney's 2DayFM.

"I would say, 'OK Nicole, my trailer is too small and my lunch is late.' And she would have to go run around and take care of me that way and that was quite cute," he said.

It wasn't all fun and games though, with Aaron shocked to learn that he would be sharing a bathroom with the famous actress at their on-set accommodation.

He solved the problem by putting a piece of paper on the door that read 'Nicole's bathroom' and used the downstairs restroom himself.

"Nicole and I actually shared the upper portion of a house. We had two rooms right next to each other; I was actually in an office," he said. "And on the first day I went to go to the bathroom before going down to set and I found out that Nicole and I were sharing a bathroom. Excuse me, but I can't share a bathroom with Nicole Kidman. It's just not right."

The American actor, 45, currently stars in the blockbuster film Olympus Has Fallen.

Unlike most people, you don't have to fish around for ideas. They automatically flow from you like water coming out of a tap. Cultivate your artistic side.More
