Hollywood star Nicole Kidman was an inappropriate choice to play a dream wife in Frank Oz's movie remake of the STEPFORD WIVES - because she has no domestic skills in real life.

The 36-year-old can only knock up simple dishes, and desperately wants to be a better home-maker.

Kidman says, "I can cook a bit but I'd like to become better at it, but it's relaxing.

"Otherwise, well, I can't sew. I'm a very poor knitter. I can wrap Christmas presents really well!"
