OSCAR-winning actress Nicole Kidman fantasises about retiring because her Hollywood lifestyle has left her lonely and depressed.

The MOULIN ROUGE star complains she often sits alone after glamorous awards ceremonies and premieres desperate for someone to talk to her.

She explains, "It's a bit like Cinderella returning from the ball and taking off her gown. Even on the night of The Oscars, after all the parties, I find myself alone wondering who I could talk to. This job can really take its toll."
