Recently divorced NICOLE KIDMAN successfully kept eagle-eyed paparazzi photographers waiting at the VENICE FILM FESTIVAL. The sexy flame-haired Australian has barely been off the world's front pages since splitting with fellow superstar TOM CRUISE, and she is the big attraction at Venice where she is appearing in two films, DOGVILLE (2002) and HOURS, The (2001).
Photographers who decamped to Venice airport were in for a long, hot wait though - the MOULIN ROUGE (2001) star's private plane was delayed for three hours. (JLM/WNWCYA/IG)
