Movie beauty Nicole Kidman was so committed to the success of new project The Human Stain, she stripped off for a sexy nude scene to spice the movie up.

The Australian actress was reportedly disappointed with the final cut of the film, in which she stars alongside SIR Anthony Hopkins, particularly a steamy scene she had originally insisted on staying clothed for - so she called back the cast and crew and re-shot it in the nude.

A source says, "As you can imagine, Hopkins and director Robert Benton applauded her devotion to her craft."

It was recently revealed producers have delayed the American release of The Human Stain until 31 October (03), to boost its chances at next year's (04) Academy Awards.
