Nicole Upset Rome

Nicole was in Rome over the weekend to shoot a TV commercial, and the whole production really upset residents because they say they had no warning. The residents demanded money before any filming for the Sky Italia commercial could begin. Here's more:

ANGRY residents won £17,000 compensation after a film crew turned up without warning to make an advert starring Nicole Kidman. They woke to find vans and equipment choking their narrow streets and were furious when they were told to stay indoors.

They then refused to let the actress into their block of flats in the Testaccio area of Rome. With time running out for Nicole, bosses of Sky Italia handed over £17,000 and shooting began six hours late. Luigi Prosperi, spokesman for the residents said: "No one had informed us. The first we knew was when we woke up to find the streets clogged."

Nicole had flown in from London, where she is making a movie. She is staying at the Dorchester hotel, where she demanded staff change the light bulbs from 60 watts to 40.

Wonder why Nicole needed the lights lower? That's a weird request. As for her loose shirt - we just won't go there.

haha....don't get those Italians upset... they get very upset in those small towns when too much noise is made...I was once yelled at from a window in Italy to shut up b/c I was laughing so hard and people were trying to get some sleep.

for years my mom insists that family keep bright lights off and in her home I doubt there is a sigle light bulb brighter than 40..even the kitchen halgens. So she may just have a sensitivity issue. After being in front of cameras for a living you might like to chill in private too!

Its italy, people dont take the law seriously.. Its like Spain. IN USA you must have the permits and all permissions from the City Hall and the mayor. In Italy they by-pass all that, had they done it right they wouldn't have to pay 17,000€

I live in a town that is constantly used to shoot movies & it is such a pain in the ass! When they shot Cold Mountain they had to lay down hay on the streets & put boards over the sidawalk & it eff-ed traffic for friggin ever!! Its neat to see Cumberland St. in a Jude Law movie, however!

how arrogant that this film crew will just take over this neighborhood and then have the balls to tell people to stay inside? other countries do not fall all over celebrites. think nic will still hit the botox after the baby keeps growing?

Probably just requested...People are always trying to say that actors are demanding...she probably just asked...
