Hollywood beauty Nicole Kidman has approached her latest role in the movie adaptation of Bewitched with the intensity of a "Shakespearean play".

The OSCAR-winning superstar, 37, is taking her starring role as nose-twitching witch SAMANTHA " too seriously" and has surprised crew members with her highly focused nature.

A source says, "Nicole takes every role seriously but maybe this time she's going over the top.

"She's approaching the film as if it's a Shakespearean play.

"Everyone's noticed how serious she is and how stressed she looks.

"She does her scene then goes to her trailer. She hardly talks to anyone."
