Nicole Kidman still has a body "To Die For" and when she wants a role, she's willing to work it like the rent is due.

According to Us Weekly, Nicole really wanted a part in Precious director Lee Daniels' new film Paperboy — specifically the part of a sex-crazed woman obsessed with marrying a death row inmate played by John Cusack.

"Lee said, 'Look, we've got no money, you're going to have to do your own hair and make-up,'" Nicole said at a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival. "So I actually went into my bathroom and I got out the fake tan and put on fake eyelashes and got a hairpiece thing that was platinum, threw it all on and texted a photo to Lee in all these different provocative positions."

It worked! Not that Lee is the kind of director turned on by sexy, scantily clad women. He was more into co-star Zac Efron, who plays an investigator with a crush on Nicole's character. In the film, Zac often has to wear (just) tighty-whities, including a scene in the rain. "He's a good-looking guy," the director joked of Zac. "And I'm gay. What do you want?"

Nothing, man. We're good! Head here for a film photo of Nicole and Zac. Warning: He’s fully clothed. Sorry!
