Bosses Of Kidman's Movie Defend Controversial Scene

LATEST: Bosses of NICOLE KIDMAN's latest movie BIRTH are defending the decision to include the actress in a bathtub scene with a 10-year-old boy.

In the movie, the OSCAR-winning actress' dead husband is reincarnated as a child, played by Canadian actor CAMERON BRIGHT, and it has elicited much outrage after it was revealed Kidman and her young co-star share a bathtub in one scene.

But NEW LINE CINEMA's MARK ORDESKY insists there's nothing in the movie to cause alarm.

He says, "There is no physical contact between Nicole and Cameron. They are not nude in the bathtub. The scene was shot over Nicole's shoulder.

"(Cameron) is playing a grown man trapped in the body of a 10-year-old. When you see the performances in the context of the plot, it makes perfect sense. It is meant to be a provocative film, but not in a horrible or salacious way."

Bright, who played REBECCA ROMIJN-STAMOS' son in the movie GODSEND, notes, "In one movie I did, I had an abusive father, and in another I had a father who was a paedophile. I've had a lot of really dark roles."

LAUREN BACALL also appears in the movie as Kidman's mother.
