Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor Remember Absinthe-Fueled 'Moulin Rouge' Parties

Sixteen years after the musical rom-com’s release, “Moulin Rouge” stars Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman sat down to discuss working on the Baz Luhrmann movie for Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series.

The duo reminisced about wild nights off the set, which involving dancing on tables.

“We’d have great parties,” Kidman recalled. “Remember those Friday nights, those Saturday nights?”

“Not all of them,” McGregor laughed. “Don’t remember all of them.”

“Exactly,” Kidman said. “I remember absinthe being passed out at some point and me going, ‘Is this safe?’ I was so naive.”

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres June 13 on PBS SoCal.
