On the eve of Nicole Kidman's return to the London stage for Photograph 51, Lee Daniels interviewed his former Paperboy leading lady for the latest issue of Interview. When Kidman expressed how much she loved being in London, Daniels wasn't 100 percent excited because he wants her to guest on Empire:
DANIELS: I was disappointed to hear that because, of course, I want you on my set. [both laugh]
KIDMAN: You promised me I would be there one day.
DANIELS: I can't wait.
