NICOLE KIDMAN put on a brave face during the filming of MOULIN ROUGE (2001) - just like the real cabaret performers would have done.
The stunning actress suffered through a shocking split from TOM CRUISE while making the critically acclaimed film, and director BAZ LUHRMANN was amazed by her strength.
The ROMEO and JULIET (1996) helmer says, "She was proud of the picture and said she had to go back on the horse again. She embodied the theme of the film, which is 'the show must go on'. " (SP/AR/NFA)
