(Olivia Barker, USA TODAY) -- A-listers may shun ad acting in this country, but abroad, the small-screen spot is a sweet, discreet way to rake in dough.
Witness Nicole Kidman, now starring in a vitamin commercial in her native Australia. The Oscar winner lets uncharacteristically loose in the spot for Swisse Wellness Vitamins. We don't hear her, but we see her, prancing and dancing among stone-walled flower gardens in short shorts and motorcycle boots. At one point she throws out an impressive chorus-girl kick. Her hair is nearly back to its tousled, tangled roots.
Also part of her performance: Munching on an apple. Carrying carrots.
