Nicole recently opened up playing Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos, saying she jumped in head first to the project.
The film, also starring Javier Bardem, follows Hollywood power couple Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz face a series of personal and professional crises that threaten their careers, their relationship and their hit TV show.
"When the reality of playing (Lucille) hit me, I went, 'what have I said yes to?' To which I then went, 'Oh no, I'm not right. Everyone thinks I'm not right, so I'm going to try to sidestep this," she told Live with Kelly and Ryan.
It's been widely predicted that Nicole could earn herself an Academy Award for the lucrative role of Lucille, who starred in I Love Lucy in the '50s.
