Nicole Kidman would not use the “N’ word in her new movie The Paperboy because her son is African American. Director Lee Daniels told reporters that the actress refused his request.
He recalled, “I asked her to use the ‘N’ word. I could feel the racial tension there in the town. She said, ‘I won’t do it.’ I told my producer, ‘She won’t do it!’ Then he mapped it out — ‘Lee, day one she is on a washing machine, day two she is urinating on Zac Efron, day three she’s having telepathic sex . . . I think you can forgive her.”
Kidman explained, “I just didn’t feel it was right for the character. I have a son [Connor Cruise] who is African American. I just didn’t feel like it was right. What I try to do as an actor is fulfill a directors vision. I have opinions, but at the same time I’m not there to stop him from anything. I’ve really tried to do that in every film. I never want to pull them off their vision.”
- Nicole has two adopted children with ex Tom Cruise, Isabella, 19, and Connor, 17, and daughters Sunday Rose, 4, and Faith Margaret, 21 months, with husband Keith Urban.

In a blog post, Roberts, 51, wrote, “Today is what I like to call “Thankful Thursday, aka Friday Eve.” I have been in the hospital 25 days now.

My sister Sally-Ann’s stem cells apparently feel right at home in my body — an answer to so many prayers.”
She added, “I am hopeful that I MAY be well enough to continue my recovery at home next week and my sister’s plan to come back to NYC for that milestone in my journey. I truly FEEL and thank you for your love, prayers and good wishes. And I return it to you tenfold. Light Love Power Presence. XO”
- Earlier this year, Roberts revealed that she was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome, for which she needed the transplant.
