Nicole Kidman was ‘terrified’ to play Lucille Ball following backlash

Hollywood actor Nicole Kidman has recently opened up about her fears of playing Lucille Ball in Aaron Sorkin’s biopic Being The Ricardos amid the backlash from public.

However, insiders have now predicted that the public will fall in love her take on TV’s legendary Lucy.

For those unversed, the Oscar-winning actress faced major backlash from fans for playing Lucille in biopic Being The Ricardos.According to her statement to Variety, the Eyes Wide Shut star even confessed, “I had massive trepidation about a month prior, and Aaron had to get on the phone and send me emails saying, ‘You’ve got this’.”

Sorkin on the other hand defended his stance on the controversial casting choice during his interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

He claimed, “It was frightening but incredibly exciting. We made this movie during COVID, and so in Zooming with Nicole and [co-star] Javier Bardem and everyone else, I’d make it very clear to them that I am not looking for a physical or vocal impersonation of these people.”

“I know that Nicole was working on Lucy’s voice for a while, and I wanted to relieve her of that. As far as audience anticipation, that’s something I’m just not worried about. I’m certain that when people see the movie, they’ll leave feeling that Nicole has made a very solid case for herself.”
