Kim Kardashian has hired the acting coach Nicole Kidman thanked when accepting her Best Actress Oscar, to help nail her role in the upcoming Tyler Perry film The Marriage Counselor.
Kardashian, 31, has turned to Susan Batson, who has worked with Oscar winners Juliette Binoche, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Connelly as well as Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez.
The reality TV star decided to hire Batson to help her play her part in her new movie, as she struggles with her emotions in the wake of filing for divorce from ex-hubby Kris Humphries.
“Kim had been confident about the movie, but with recent events she has been worried that the stress of her real life would show through,” the New York Post quoted a source as telling Life and Style magazine.
“So that’s what Susan was there for,” the source added.
It is because Batson thinks Kardashian has potential that she decided to take the job, otherwise she does not take on every client.
“You have to have talent. Otherwise I really can’t work with you,” the coach said.
