While filming Baz Luhrmann's "Australia" Hugh Jackman was almost murdered by a scorpion! Thankfully, Nicky Kidman was there. During a night shoot, the two were laying in a sleeping bag when Nicky spotted a deadly scorpion coming for Hugh!
The National Enquirer reports that she immediately took charge and saved Hugh's life! A source said, "Nicole gasped when Hugh opened the cover invitingly to reveal a poisonous scorpion creeping up his leg. She calmly told him not to move and squatted down, scooped the arachnid into her hat and walked over to the woods and released it."
The crew burst into applause, but asked Nicky why she didn't kill it. She responded, "I would never kill an animal. Every creature here has its purpose. This one just didn't belong in Hugh's bag!"
Yeah right. She probably handed it off to her assistant, so she could inject her forehead with the scorpion's poison later. Botox probably isn't working for her anymore, so she needs the heavy stuff.
