AceShowbiz – Kate Hudson auditioned for “Moulin Rouge“ but lost out to Nicole Kidman. “Bummed out” when Nicole won the role of tragic heroine Satine opposite Ewan McGregor as Christian in Baz Luhrman’s musical, the 43-year-old actress said Nicole, 55, got the part because she “had a relationship with Baz and wanted to do it.”
“I really wanted that part and it was written at the time for a 19-year-old girl, I believe. Then what happened was I was sort of in the auditioning process and then Nicole [Kidman] had a relationship with Baz and wanted to do it. And so of course, it was like, ‘I guess Nicole Kidman’s doing it,’ ” she said when speaking on “The World’s First Podcast“.
