Nicole Kidman has given up on partying in New York, because she'd prefer to stay at home, host dinner parties and play boardgames.

The actress admits she recently forced herself to visit trendy Big Apple club Bungalow 8 but ended up regretting the decision.

She says, "I was stuck in a booth and couldn't get out. Someone was trying to talk to me and I was yelling, `Don't bother, I can't hear a word you're saying.'

"I sat there and drank lots of cosmopolitans, then went home and thought, `What happened?'"
