Hollywood beauty Nicole Kidman was left battered and bruised by the violent sex scenes in her last release The Paperboy. Director Lee Daniels had even offered to stop filming after fearing she had been hurt during the graphic action, reported Sun online.
But the 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress insisted to carry on and she needed make-up the next day to cover her bruises. Co-star John Cusack, who plays a prisoner on death row, said that some shots were too explicit for the harrowing drama.
"There's a lot more scenes in there that was cut out, believe me. I was afraid I was hurting her, but she was more fearless than me. "We shot the rough intimate scene on day one, and I barely knew her. Next day, Nicole showed up with bruises all over her legs," he said.
