“It was awful, but I got back up,” she told E! News tonight on the red carpet at a Calvin Klein pary for New York Fashion Week about being knocked over by a paparazzo on a bicycle outside The Carlyle hotel earlier Thursday.
Asked if she planned to press charges, Kidman said that didn’t know anything about the man who ran into her.
“I was shaken up and I’ll deal with it later,” she said. “I’m here for this now.”
The shutterbug was identified by fellow paparazzi as Carl Wu. A source told us that Kidman had been on her way back to her hotel following Calvin Klein’s runway show this afternoon when the accident occurred.
NYPD confirmed that a 19-year-old man had struck a 49-year-old woman with his bicycle and was later cited for reckless driving, riding a bicycle on the sidewalk and riding a bike without a helmet.
“I’ve lived with it for so long now,” Kidman said, referring to going places with a near-constant paparazzi shadow.
But though she’s used to such things, it can be “terrifying,” she added. “And luckily I got up but there will be a time when someone does not.”
