Kylie Minogue Ditched Aides For Movie Shoot
Minogue rose to stardom as an actress in Australian soap opera Neighbours, but moved into music in the late 1980s and has since carved out a place as one of the most popular disco divas in the world.
She admits it was a dream come true when she was offered the chance to return to acting for a role in French filmmaker Leos Carax's dark drama Holy Motors - but made a drastic change to her lifestyle to ensure she was perfect for the part.
Minogue tells Radar magazine, "I wanted the chance to change the way I present myself. I was able to strip everything away and become someone else. That's liberating... I entered Leos' world, on his terms. And I would turn up by myself every day, without any kind of entourage.
"That was difficult for my team as I know they would have loved to have been there for the experience and I had to say to them, 'No, sorry - no one is allowed to come'. I wanted it to feel like back when I was a kid, when I was just starting out, when I wasn't 'Kylie', with all the machinery and production and hoo-ha surrounding me. I was just a person acting."
