Nicole Kidman urged to play down knife-throwing skills

Nicole Kidman had to dial down her knife-throwing tricks on the set of new movie Paddington Bear because she was terrifying kids on the set. The Moulin Rouge! star took lessons to perfect her skills for a scene in the film – but she took things a little too far.
She explains, “They had to bring that down because it was too scary for the kids.
“I get very intense and I learn it properly… and they (producers) were like, ‘This is way too much for a kids’ movie’, but I can twirl a knife now.”
