Nicole Kidman blasted a rude photographer at the New York premiere of her new film Bewitched on Monday night (13JUN05) after he booed her for not stopping to pose for him.

The actress, who was still mourning the death of her make-up artist ROB McCANN, initially asked her publicist to deal with the snapper, but then decided to confront him herself.

Losing her famous cool for a moment, Kidman blasted, "You're very rude," before returning to the red carpet, visibly upset.

Her publicist was overheard asking, "Are you OK?" - to which the Aussie actress replied, "No, I'm not," before hurrying into the cinema.

A publicist for the actress insists Kidman was just reacting after having had a particularly bad day.
