Nicole Kidman unsure of acting future

Cites 'many things I want to do besides act'

SYDNEY -- Nicole Kidman said Tuesday she is unsure of her future as an actor because there are other things she wants to do, such as possibly having more children.

Kidman, 41, has three children -- 4-month-old daughter Sunday Rose with her country-singer husband Keith Urban, with whom she lives with in Nashville, and two children adopted during her first marriage to Tom Cruise.

The Oscar-winning actress, in Sydney for the world premiere of her latest movie, the outback epic "Australia," acknowledged some of her recent films have not been great successes, saying she has "quirky taste."

"In terms of my future as an actor and stuff, I don't know," she told a news conference. "I am in a place in my life where ... I've had some great opportunities and I may just choose to have some more children. I've no idea what is in my future, but I am very at peace with where I want to be.

"There are many things I want to do besides act."

Kidman, who won an Oscar for her role as writer Virginia Woolf in 2002's "The Hours," has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, often described as Australia's "leading lady."

But in recent years her movie credits have included "Birth," "The Interpreter," "Fur," "The Invasion" and "Margot at the Wedding," all of which failed to take off at the boxoffice.

"But that's my body of work -- I am not going to apologize for it," Kidman said. "I have kind of unusual taste, and sometimes it's mainstream and a lot of times it's not."
