Nashville is one cool town and it’s so cool that Nicole Kidman and Dolly Parton happen to share the same dentist in the city. Who would’ve thought that was possible? Well, Kidman offers up the insight while talking with director Baz Luhrmann in an interview for Vogue Australia. Luhrmann, who directed the new Elvis movie, worked with Kidman in the 2001 film Moulin Rouge!
Luhrmann said that he “fell in love” with Nashville while working on his latest film. He says that he was in Nashville for Elvis and recorded all the gospel in old churches there. It leads to Kidman sharing this anecdote. She lives in Nashville with her husband Keith Urban and their two daughters. “I was at the dentist yesterday, who’s the same dentist that Dolly uses! That’s how small-town Nashville is!” Upon hearing this, Luhrmann says, “I love Nashville and I love her too. I call her ‘the Dolly Lama of L.A.,’ you know?”
