‘I also want to say that my mum ran lines with me. She played Desi Arnaz so she gets a shout out,’ she added.

The film is based on a true story and is centered around Lucille (played by Kidman) and her husband Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) as they face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage.

Nicole recently revealed that director Aaron Sorkin asked her over Zoom if she would be interested in playing Lucille Ball for the movie.

‘Yes, I would love to do anything with you,’ the actress remembered replying while promoting the film on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Nicole also said once she started to study Lucille that she loved playing her because she was such a physical comedian.

Nicole said after she read the script she was completely consumed and captivated by the story of Lucille and Desi Arnaz.
