Nicole Kidman is sick of her celebrity status and tries hard to lead a normal life.

The actress has even developed a technique enabling her to go about her everyday business without being bothered by the star-struck public.

She says, "I hate the interest in celebrities. In New York I go around without an 'entourage'. I walk quickly, with my hair pulled back, and make myself invisible.

"I go to the cinema with my kids just like anyone else."
