Nicole gets minimum wage

Nicole Kidman will be paid just 570 dollars-a-week to star in her next film.

She is accepting the Australian minimum wage to appear alongside Russell Crowe in Eucalyptus, in a bid to help the country's movie industry.

Kidman recently hit out at speculation about her earnings reports

When asked about her salary for Eucalyptus, she snapped, "Salary stories are intrusive. Do you ask your neighbour what are they earning for their job? Why should I have to put up with it?"
