In the recent screening of the much-awaited biographical movie ‘Being the Ricardos,’ she opened up about essaying the role of Lucille Ball in the film. She revealed that she fell in love with her character the moment she read the script.

‘Being the Ricardos,’ written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, follows the love story of actors Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, which will release on Amazon Prime Video after a limited release by Amazon Studios on 10 December 2021.

Nicole Kidman got a standing ovation for her performance during the post-screening Q&A session, Variety reported.

Speaking about her character in the film, Kidman mentioned that although she loved Lucille Bell and her performance, I love Lucy; she didn’t know she was behind the lipstick. Talking about how she got into love with Ball, she said, “I fell in love with her as I was reading the script. I realized what she was doing (was) trailblazing for women.”
