We’re used to seeing her dressed to the nines at lavish red carpet events, but Nicole Kidman has sent shockwaves through Hollywood with her latest look.

The 50-year-old Aussie actress has undergone a make-under for a new film role.

While she’s known for showing off her luscious locks and stunning makeup, Kidman is completely unrecognisable as an LAPD detective.

She’s set to appear in a new crime drama called Destroyer, which is set for release next year.

She also steps away from the stunning red carpet gowns and wears a pair of jeans, a plain black top and a leather jacket.

Her face also looks dramatically different. Kidman appears to have big bags under her eyes and there’s no fancy lipstick or iconic makeup to be seen.

It’s not the first time Kidman has changed her appearance for a film role.

She recently appeared in the hit TV series Top of the Lake where she wore a grey wig and extreme makeup to make her look elderly.

The star won an Academy Award in 2003 for her shocking role in The Hours.

Let’s just say she’s come a long way since her BMX Bandit days.

The new pictures come after Nicole revealed her beauty secrets to looking young.

“I’m low maintenance in the sense that I have just one or two things that I put on at night, but I’m really into sun protection — as can be seen from paparazzi photos where I walk around in a big hat and a rashie and my sunscreen,” she revealed to Pop Sugar.

“I think probably being an Aussie and having always grown up with the idea of having invisible zinc has also been a really good thing … I spent my childhood covered in white zinc. I use it every single day, whether it’s sunny cloudy, Winter or Summer, but yeah, I have to use it every day.”
