Back to the botox? Nicole Kidman displays suspiciously frozen features at the CMAs

By Daily Mail Reporter

Frozen: Nicole Kidman's face appears frozen as she poses for photographers at the Country Music Awards in Las Vegas

Nicole Kidman finally admitted to one of Hollywood's worst kept secrets in January: She has used Botox.

But the actress said those days were behind her, and enthused: 'I can move my forehead again.’

However sceptics may be questioning the 43-year-old's resolve after she was pictured looking suspiciously 'frozen' at yesterday's Country Music Awards.

The Rabbit Hole star posed with husband Keith Urban on the red carpet at the Las Vegas ceremony.

While she was grinning broadly as she and her country music star husband hammed it up for the cameras, her forehead remained completely smooth.

Her expressionless forehead looked at odds with her eyes and mouth as she attempted to smile naturally.

Miss Kidman finally confessed to a German magazine in January that she has had Botox injections.

Asked by an interviewer how she kept her wrinkles at bay, Miss Kidman replied: 'I’ve tried a lot of things but apart from working out and a good diet most things don’t help.

‘I even tried Botox but I didn’t like how my face looked afterwards. Now I don’t use it anymore - and I can move my forehead again.’

It was the first time the actress has admitted to having the treatment after previously denying the allegations.

She has declared in the past: ‘I am completely natural. I have nothing in my face or anything.’

Natural or not: The 43-year-old finally admitted to having had Botox in an interview this year, but insists those days are behind her

An esteemed cosmetic surgeon said in 2008 that Miss Kidman's 'over-Botoxed' face was giving the industry a bad name.

Dr Martin Braun, who runs the biggest Botox clinic in Canada, was convinced that she had been an 'enthusiastic user'.

Botox paralyses facial muscles for between four and six months, softening the appearance of any wrinkles.

Support: The actress hammed it up with husband Keith Urban on the red carpet, but her forehead didn't match her efforts to smile

Dr Braun told a cosmetic medicine conference in Queensland, Australia: 'Nicole seems to get her Botox done two or three weeks before a big event, so when she for instance, goes up on stage to collect her Academy Award she looks frozen and strange.'

Hopefully Miss Kidman has not returned to Botox, as she is in the middle of starring in the biopic Hemingway and Gellhorn with Clive Owen - and moving her face is a job requirement.

A spokesperson for Miss Kidman is yet to respond to a request for comment.
