“We got an amazing standing ovation, which was great,” Kidman tells AP. “This is my fifth time [at Cannes], so I’ve had many, many, many different reactions. That’s the longest standing ‘O’ I’ve ever gotten at Cannes.”
Reports clock the standing ovation at 15 minutes. Kidman’s costar Zac Efron was brought to tears by the show of approval – as was much of the cast from Lee Daniels’ thriller. But, Kidman didn’t join in with an overly emotional response of her own.
“Lee was crying, but I wasn’t crying,” the 44-year-old Oscar winner for The Hours says. “I cry at my kids, I cry with my family, I don’t really cry outside of that — that’s the stuff that brings me to tears! All of this other stuff, the glitter, and those sort of things, I’m more sort of immune to at this stage. It’s probably because I’ve been doing it for so long.”
Aside from The Paperboy, Kidman had another movie at the festival, the out of competition Hemingway & Gellhorn, which premieres Monday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
