Important to scare yourself, feels Nicole Kidman

London: Actress Nicole Kidman believes the only way to overcome fear in life is tackling it head on.

"I think it`s important to do things that scare you sometimes. I`ve been called fearless, but that`s not the case. I have an enormous amount of fear, but I push through it," quoted Kidman as saying.

"Sometimes it`s other people who push me, sometimes I will feel terrified, but then I`ll just say to myself, `What is the worst that can happen? So people don`t like it, so I fall flat on my face, I hurt myself - that`s okay.` I try to have that attitude about everything in my life, not just work," added the 45-year-old.
