Hollywood superstar Nicole Kidman helped boost donations for a children's hospital in her native Australia by manning the phones at a telethon on Monday.
The Hours actress was a special guest at the annual Gold Week fundraiser Down Under, and picked up the phone to take charitable pledges for the Sydney Children's Hospital.
She helped smash the target of £1.3m on by adding her own £62,500 donation to the fund.
The Oscar winner is an ambassador for the facility and has visited the hospital several times to meet its young patients.
