Nicole Kidman has reportedly been ditched from a movie about the life of
Hollywood madame Heidi Fleiss because she's too old.
The OSCAR winner was interested in playing the notorious Fleiss, who
boasted of a vast string of celebrity clients - but the former prostitute
claims producers have opted for Hilary Swank instead.
She tells gossip site The Scoop, "It had something to do with age. She'd
have to play a 22-year-old, and she's nearly forty. I think she's amazing and
could play a 22-year-old or whatever she wanted, but they said 'How about
Hilary Swank?' and
I said, great, fine, whoever.
"I would have said great, fine, whoever, if they had said Roseanne Barr. I
stopped paying attention because I'm focusing on my future, not my past."
Kidman's spokesperson, however, insists the actress pulled out of the
movie: "At some point a long time ago Nicole had expressed some interest in it.
But she was never attached to it and is no longer even considering it."
