Nicole Kidman opened up about a terrifying incident that occurred on the set of her most recent movie, Destroyer.
The Australian actor plays an LAPD detective in the film, but the fiction quickly became a reality when an active shooter was seen near the set of the film.
"We were in the shooting in South Central LA and they were like, 'Come in, there's a shooter, a live shooter,'" Kidman said during a BAFTA Life in Pictures event in London.
"I'm like, what? I have the gun (support) and I'm on the street and they dragged me, and I hit the ground because there was a shooter and helicopters."
According to the synopsis of the film, Kidman plays Detective Erin Bell, who, as a young cop, was covertly placed with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When the leader of that gang reappears many years later, he must work his way back through the remaining members and into his own history with them to finally count on the demons that destroyed his past. "
Kidman became something expert in weapons for Destroyer and he spent a month training in a shooting range before the filming began.
"All weapons, I can charge them, I can shoot them, I know them," said Kidman. Variety.
"I trained for about a month, but every day. It was cold, and I was tired, and I would just train. And my hands tightened, because I do not have big hands and I do not have strong hands. It was horrible."
But what was even more terrible for Kidman was the emotional cost of playing a tortured detective.
"I was very depressed," he said. Variety.
"It was the point where my husband was like, & # 39; When the hell is this going to end? & # 39;"
Destroyer will leave next month.
