"It is such a fun film and it is a fun day, and we just wanted to have some fun," Kidman told The Australian newspaper. "It's one of my favorite movies. We decided to do something that was fun and a bit different."

Kidman, who took her parents to the soiree, was sans hubby Keith Urban, who was back at the couple's Nashville home with their young daughters Sunday and Faith. "I wish I could have brought Keith but he was at the Country Music Awards ... and taking our kids trick or treating," she explained.
The 45-year-old, who said she regularly bets on the Melbourne Cup, flew Down Under for just two days! She's currently hard at work playing the role of another Old Hollywood star, Grace Kelly, for the 2014 movie "Grace of Monaco," which has recently been filming in France.
