Aussie beauty NICOLE KIDMAN has reportedly pushed back the opening date of her new movie MOULIN ROUGE so she doesn't have to do publicity so near to her split from TOM CRUISE.
The film was set to be released in April (01) but was then pushed back to May (01), and now June (01). But a spokeswoman for the FOX FILM company insists the move was made because executives at the studio want the movie to be a summer release.
Kidman's rep, CATHERINE OLIM says, "Why would you assume she wouldn't answer any questions?" And Olim says Kidman will not be following in the footsteps of MEG RYAN and RUSSELL CROWE by specifying no reporters ask questions about her personal life. She adds, "We are not in advance objecting to any questions. If Nicole feels like not answering any questions, she will say so at the time." (MB/WNWC/CPT)
