Kidman takes a break
09:30 21 April 2005
Nicole Kidman has confessed she suffered exhaustion last year.
The Oscar-winning beauty said she only realised how overworked she was after returning to her native Australia for a well-earned break.
She revealed: "I wasn't looking my best at the end of last year, I needed a rest - and I didn't realise how much until I'd had a couple of weeks off.
"When I work, I work hard. Then the days drift into weeks and the weeks into months. If I'm offered a film I really want to do, with a great script and director, I find it virtually impossible to say no."
The 37-year-old actress, who has vowed to spend more time on herself, says, after looking painfully thin on the red carpet last year, she is now starting to gain weight.
She added: "My friends say I look better now. It was great just sitting around enjoying good food and drink. It did me the power of good."
