  • Nicole and Hugh turn up the temp in Tokyo

    Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman were preened-to-perfection at the Tokyo premiere of Australia earlier today.

    Nicole was particularly red carpet-worthy in a stunning, glittering, fringed minidress from Prada autumn/winter 09, while Hugh was ultra-handsome in a fitted charcoal suit.

    Australia’s stars Nicole and Hugh might have looked fantastic, but the Baz Luhrmann-directed World War II epic has been widely panned, receiving a number of negative reviews.

    It has, however, become Down Under’s second highest-grossing movie ever – behind hot movie Crocodile Dundee.

    But Nicole herself is unsure of her own performance.

    ‘I can’t look at this movie and be proud of what I’ve done,’ Kidman, 41, told Sydney radio station 2dayFM.

    Talking about the Sydney premiere of the movie, she revealed: ‘I sat there, and I looked at Keith [Urban] and went, “Am I any good in this movie?”

    ‘But I thought Brandon Walters and Hugh Jackman were wonderful,’ Kidman continued. ‘It’s just impossible for me to connect to it emotionally at all.’

    Nicole also admitted she only went to the film’s premiere to support her director – and friend – Luhrmann.

    I don’t usually see my films, but because of Baz I had to see it,’ she admitted. ‘I saw Moulin Rouge. I’ve really only seen that and this in my whole career. It gets worse as I get older.’
