Trivia

• In 2014, Nicole Kidman said that the only time she has gone method and stayed in character throughout a shoot was during this production.
• Nicole Kidman created the “trashy” look of Charlotte herself, as the budget lacked money for a make-up assistant. This was the first time Kidman did her own make-up on a film.
• Nicole Kidman improvised the dance scene between her and Zac Efron. Efron described filming the scene as “the moment I became a man”.
