Nicole Kidman impressed many with her vocal talents in Baz Luhrman’s 2001 musical spectacle, Moulin Rouge!

And now the 53-year-old star is doing it all again, singing the theme song for her latest outing, The Undoing.  

On Monday, the mother-of-four revealed how it all came about in a new featurette for the six part series, directed by Susanne Bier.

‘So about a month before we’re about to lock picture, Susanne Bier calls me and says “Um, I’ve had an idea – I want you to record the title sequence”,” she told Instagram followers in a short video. 

‘I was like, “Absolutely not”.

‘And then she said, “You have to”, and then I went, “OK”.’  

In the video, Nicole is seen singing the timeless classic Dream a Little Dream of Me, made famous by both Doris Day and The Mamas & The Papas. 

She captioned the post: ‘Danish director + musician husband + filming in a basement studio = nervous singer of #TheUndoing theme song.’

Despite her beautiful voice, Nicole told The Sydney Morning Herald earlier this month singing was not a comfortable space for her.

‘I can’t do with my voice what I can do when I act and that’s very frustrating,’ she confessed to the publication.

‘With performance, there’s the possibility I may not get there. But at least I know I can try to reach it. 

‘With voice, I just can’t. I wish I could sing what I feel.’

Nicole’s comments follow co-star Ismael Cruz Cordova revealing he was ‘in awe’ of the Australian actress.

The 33-year-old actor told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday: ‘She has such a cool inner life, and that’s the energy that she gives you. 

‘So I was just playing off of her, you know. A lot of playing off her and a lot of just being in awe of her performance… just feeding off her.’ 

He added: ‘When you have a good scene partner, your performance gets full. You’re able to actually have moments where you can get lost in it. So I give her all the praise, all the praise.’
