    Nicole Kidman's daughter doesn't want to cast her in her films

    The 'Being the Ricardos' actress - who has two adult children with ex-husband Tom Cruise and Sunday, 13, and Faith, 10, with spouse Keith Urban.


    Revealed her teenage child has been making her own amateur movies since she was eight years old, but despite her own glittering career, the Oscar-winning star admitted the youngster doesn't want to involve her in her projects. Nicole told the Daily Mail newspaper columnist Baz Bamigboye: "[Sunday is] chomping at the bit to go to film school . . . but at 13 and a half, she's too young.

    "I'm like: 'Do you want me?!' And she says: 'No!'She may change her mind [but I doubt it].

    'The great thing about her age group is that they can make films on their iPads and iPhones. They learn to edit, lay in sound."

    Nicole's 'Portrait Of A Lady' director, Jane Campion, has been a mentor to Sunday and advised the teenager to explore art school first as a way to understand visual framing better.

    Nicole added: "As Keith says, 'You've got to learn rhythm guitar before you learn electric.' "

    The Australian actress admitted she is surprised at how teenagers have been drawn to 'Being the Riccardos', in which she plays late comedy legend Lucille Ball.

    She said: "I thought women in their 20s might be enthralled, but I didn't think younger girls would be."

    Nicole believes the renewed interest in Lucille is due to the fact "she's such a cool woman, and a cool woman is timeless", and praised the 'I Love Lucy' star for having a "talent to withstand so many failures, and to turn lemons into lemonade, to quote Beyoncé!"

    Meanwhile, the 'Big Little Lies' actress teased she is considering a return to the stage, possibly in 2023, in a new version of a Greek tragedy, though she declined to give specific details.

    She simply said: "It's in my future."
