Nicole's expensive speech

Nicole Kidman is being paid nearly half a million dollars to give a 25 minute speech to a conference- she might not attend.

She will address the 5th Annual Forbes Global CEO Conference at Sydney Opera House.

However, the actress is considering delivering the speech by satellite.

According to a source said: "You'd think for that much money she'd at least be there. But she's such a big name organisers want her to speak no matter what. This deal will make her the highest paid public speaker of all time.

Nicole will talk about following dreams and aspirations from the perspective of being an actress and a mother."
