MNA Entertainment Desk: Hollywood star Nicole Kidman undergoes a dramatic makeover for new drama “Destroyer”, playing a tired-looking and worn out police detective with a painful history, reported news agency.
The Oscar winner swaps her blonde locks for a short bob and rugged style to play Erin Bell, a detective whose past continues to haunt her years after infiltrating a criminal gang undercover in an operation with devastating consequences.
“I just felt her and I felt sadness and I felt pain for her,” Kidman said at the BFI London Film Festival.
“I thought there was a restlessness and a complexity to her anger which I thought I had never seen on screen, particularly in the form of a female.”
The 51-year-old is no stranger to changing her looks for roles, such as when she played Virginia Woolf in “The Hours”, for which she won an Oscar.
Critics have praised her performance in “Destroyer” and described her appearance as “almost unrecognizable”.
