In a recent press conference, director Lee Daniels said:

    "I asked her to use the 'N' word. I could feel the racial tension there in the town. She said, 'I won't do it.' I told my producer, 'She won't do it!' Then he mapped it out -- 'Lee, day one she is on a washing machine, day two she is urinating on Zac Efron, day three she's having telepathic sex . . . I think you can forgive her."

Kidman, who stars opposite Zac Efron, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey, adds:

    "I just didn't feel it was right for the character. I have a son [Connor Cruise] who is African American. I just didn't feel like it was right. What I try to do as an actor is fulfill a directors vision. I have opinions, but at the same time I'm not there to stop him from anything. I've really tried to do that in every film. I never want to pull them off their vision."

Now that's sticking to your guns!
