Los Angeles, Nov 25 (IANS) Actress Nicole Kidman says she loves playing the villain in movies because as a child, she was “happiest” pretending to be a villain.
“I was the kid who loved the wicked witch in ‘The Wizard of Oz’. So, of course, I grew up to be the girl who wants to play the villain in a movie. I’m always happy to play the bad girl,” she told the Daily Telegraph newspaper.
Kidman voiced the evil Millicent in the forthcoming film “Paddington”, which is directed by Paul King.
“I know all about ‘Paddington’. I had a teddy bear but I also had a paddington Bear. I remember being about six or seven and just hoping I would find my own little paddington stranded on the street,” she said.
The film, which also stars Julie Walters, Hugh Bonneville and Peter Capaldi, is based on the novels by Michael Bond.
