Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman has been blasted by her critics who brand her charitable appearance at a US Congress seminar on violence against women a sham, because the actress’ on screen “sex roles betray women in the real world”.

The critics say that the actress’ opinion is unworthy because her “sex roles betray women in the real world”.

The Independent was among several others who slammed Kidman for playing sexually provocative roles that ‘betrayed women’.

It referred to her rape scene in ‘Dogville’, kinky sex act in ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ and the scene in ‘Birth’ where she baths with a minor, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman testified before a US congressional panel on violence against women, saying showbiz may have “played a bad role” by depicting women as weak sex objects.

The Aussie actress spoke before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee as a goodwill ambassador for the UN Development Fund for Women, called Unifem, to promote the International Violence Against Women Act.

The Oscar-winner, however, added that though Hollywood probably contributed to the problem, she chose to stay away from those kinds of demeaning roles.

“I can”t be responsible for all of Hollywood, but I can certainly be responsible for my own career,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

The star further reminded Congress about the need to pump in more funds to tackle the situation, adding: “We need the money.”
