Nicole Kidman was among the stars to brave the pouring rain at the premiere of Paddington the movie today.
The actress was joined by her husband Keith Urban and actors Hugh Bonneville, Ben Whishaw, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent on the red carpet, in London's Leicester Square. She portrays a villainous taxidermist in the film.
Well obviously, I was the kid that loved the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz, so of course I grew up to be the girl who wants to play the villain in a movie...I know all about Paddington. I had a teddy bear but I also had a Paddington Bear.
I remember being about six or seven and just hoping I would find my own little Paddington stranded on the street.
