Berlin (dpa) - Hollywod star Nicole Kidman (“Moulin Rouge”) is not exactly small: the 53-year-old measures 1.80 meters.

As a teenager, it was uncomfortable for her, Kidman says in an interview with the British edition of Glamor magazine.

"I was a teenager who didn't want to adjust, but I also had a lot of fears and insecurities because I was so tall," she says.

"When I was 13, I was 1.78 meters tall."

Kidman was born in Hawaii.

When she was three, her parents moved back to native Australia, where the actress grew up.

On the occasion of her new film “The Prom” (“The Prom”), the Oscar winner also remembers her own prom: “I wore a flapper dress from the 1920s, in keeping with my attitude of not wanting to conform.”

The vintage dress was black and white and set with pearls - "it definitely had nothing of tulle and large skirts."


In the musical “The Prom” Kidman plays alongside Mery Streep and James Corden.

The film follows a group of Broadway stars who want to help a schoolgirl from Indiana: The girl was banned from prom because she wanted to bring her boyfriend to accompany her.

Ryan Murphy's comedy will be released on December 11th on the streaming provider Netflix.
