Nicole Kidman’s minder’s `mow down’ bin Laden CIA agents at Film Festival
Melbourne: Three CIA officers, who helped hunt down Osama bin Laden, were mowed down by Nicole Kidman’s security detail at the Sundance Film Festival.
Greg Barker, director of the Sundance documentary ‘Manhunt: The Search for bin Laden’, came to the festival with three ex-CIA operatives interviewed in his film - Marty Martin, Cindy Storer and Nada Bakos.
While heading into a building for an interview, Barker and his CIA companions overwhelmed by the actress’ guards.
“Suddenly, all these heavy guys ... are like, ‘Get out of the way!’ And they started pushing them, pushing them, forcing them through this narrow opening. It’s Nicole Kidman, you know,” News.com.au quoted Barker as saying.
“So clearly, we’re here talking about taking out bin Laden, and the CIA, it does not matter compared to Nicole Kidman. I get it,” Barker said.
Martin, a top CIA official who led the search for bin Laden after the September 11 attacks, quipped that he may have shared a moment with Kidman.
“Just for the record, I was not intimidated by the beefy guys at all. And I also think they were a little concerned, because Nicole was probably eyeing over and thinking, ‘Hey, I don’t know who that guy is, but hello’,” he added.
