Nicole Kidman Talks Rough Love Scenes And A Possible 'Empire' Appearance

"The idea of humiliating another actor or being humiliated myself is devastating."

As the cover star for Interview's October 2015 issue, Nicole Kidman gets candid with Lee Daniels, the director of "Empire." 

The two friends, who worked together on 2012's "The Paperboy," discuss the idea of Kidman making an appearance on "Empire" and how she handles rough love scenes as an actress.

Kidman, who is currently in London for her play "Photograph 51," told Daniels that she would appear on his hit TV show if she found enough time in her schedule. 

"You promised me I would be there one day," said Kidman. "Something like doing 'Empire' is more to do with whether I can devote the amount of time I need to. I can't pop in and pop out. I wouldn't get there emotionally." 

Kidman also opened up to Daniels about filming love scenes -- and how some are tougher than others. 

"I remember the love scene you did with John Cusack. I said, 'John, you’re hurting her.' You were bent over the washer and dryer. I said, 'Nicole, are you okay?' And you said, 'I’m fine,' said Daniels. "But it was clear that he was throwing you around the fucking room like a mop. [laughs] And the next day you came to set bruised. Is that a part of your discipline?" 

"The idea of humiliating another actor or being humiliated myself is devastating. So that's why, if he's a little rougher than he knows he's being, the last thing I want to say is, 'Oh my gosh, you hurt me," said Kidman. "Most actors are like that. We all go, 'No, no. I'm fine. Don't worry about it.' Because that's how you release into things and find stuff."
