Towering Nicole Kidman portrait in Sydney

·1-min read

Aussie actress Nicole Kidman is known for being tall, and soon she will be a towering 18 storeys high.

An enormous handpainted portrait of the 53-year-old is due to be unveiled in Sydney on Saturday.

Eleven artists have been working on the portrait - measuring 18.4m by 36.8m on the side of a Darlinghurst apartment building - for more than two weeks, battling wind and rain.

The finishing touches are scheduled to be added by about midday Saturday.

The portrait, which is on display until Tuesday, is designed to promote Kidman's latest screen series The Undoing.

She plays a therapist in the psychological thriller, which also stars Hugh Grant.
