Hollywood Star Nicole Kidman will visit Vienna in March this year as she has signed an advertising contract with a luxury brand of watches.
The company confirmed to the Austrian magazine "Seitenblicke" that the actress had to choose a city in Europe to work as a testimonial for the firm.
It is not clear yet how long Nicole Kidman will stay in Vienna. Her agenda in the city is also still being revised. The company promised to release further details in two weeks.
The 45-year-old actress started her career in 1989 with the film "Dead Calm". After she had married Tom Cruise, the couple played together in widely successful films like "Days of Thunder" (1990) or "Eyes Wide Shut" (1999).
Cruise’s and Kidman’s divorce was hotly debated in the media. Only then Kidman evolved as an individual artist. She brilliantly acted in films like "Moulin Rouge", "The Others" or "Dogville".
