Washington: Aussie actress Nicole Kidman has revealed that her role as global women’s organisation Unifem’s goodwill ambassador has sometimes reduced her to tears.
The star said that she has had to toughen up in order to be able to listen to rape victims` stories without breaking down.
"I’m a terrible person sometimes for this because I can become so emotionally involved," Contactmusic quoted her as telling CNN.
"In Kosovo, I had to be taken aside and told, ``This is gonna be a very emotional path for the rest of your life. You’re gonna see and hear things you should never see or hear,``" she said.
Kidman said that victims themselves have given her the strength to cope with the terrible stories she hears while visiting shelters.
She added, "They have such courage... They have big dreams. I wanna help... (but) I certainly feel and it brings me to my knees."
