Hollywood beauty Nicole Kidman is returning to her Catholic roots by taking a detailed course about the Bible's Old Testament.

The 37-year-old Australian actress has employed acclaimed Professor of Religion DR ROBERT CARGILL, of America's Pepperdine University, to teach her about theology and its connections to Middle Eastern Politics.

Dr Cargill confirms, "Yes I'm teaching Nicole, but I make it general policy not to talk about it."

It is also rumoured THE INTERPRETER star - who left school at 16 to pursue her acting career - is planning to take a philosophy degree when she finishes the theology course.
