Nicole's currently in Oz, rehearsing for her latest Baz Luhrmann collaboration, Australia, a story about cattle ranchers in...well, Australia, of course! Reports say that they'll rehearse the WWII drama for seven months before shooting a single scene! I'm sure Nicole's going to make the most of that time spent in her home country - she was recently awarded the "Companion of the Order of Order of Australia" (the country's highest honor) for her service to the performing arts, support of youth activities and charity work, including her advocacy for cancer research!
