London: Hollywood beauty Nicole Kidman spent two years recovering from a knee injury after overdoing a dance scene in her romantic musical `Moulin Rouge`.

The `Australia` star got exhausted during an early morning dance sequence routine for the film and tore a cartilage due to which she had to limp throughout the rest of the movie and beyond, Contactmusic reported.

"It was that dancing mentality, where you keep dancing. It was, like, 3am, and I was thinking, `I`m so tired and I probably shouldn`t do another one (scene) in these heels, but yeah, OK, one more take, this will be it.` And I just kind of fell and tore my knee up. It was bad because it (lasted) the next couple of years," said the 43-year-old
actress.

`Moulin Rouge` is a 2001 romantic musical film directed by Baz Luhrmann and revolves around the romance between and English poet who falls in love with the terminally-ill star of the Moulin Rouge.
