Melbourne: Nicole Kidman has apparently given her stamp of approval to Chinese tycoon Wang Jianlin`s bid to set up an 8 billion-dollar worth Hollywood-inspired movie market in the eastern country.

The blonde beauty showed her support for Jianlin`s plans by attending a glitzy event in the northeastern city of Qingdao that was hosted by him, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The function also saw Hollywood celebs, including Ewan McGregor, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Travolta and Leonardo DiCaprio, mixing with Chinese stars like Zhang Ziyi, Jet Li and Tony Leung.

At the occasion, the country`s richest man said that his company, Dalian Wanda Group, will build a state-of-the-art film studio complex in a bid to dominate China`s rapidly growing movie market.
