Before filming of blockbuster Moulin Rouge, Scottish actor EWAN MCGREGOR first met NICOLE KIDMAN at director BAZ LUHRMANN's plush Sydney mansion.
In preparation for their parts, both actors had to learn to sing and dance - something which fortunately came naturally to them both. Ewan says,
"By the end of the first day, we were both singing and dancing together. We made a pact not to be embarrassed about anything. Whether we were kissing or singing, we went for it. "(SC/WNSNE/KMW)
