Movie star Nicole Kidman brought a spot of Hollywood glamour to Edinburgh Zoo yesterday, when the actress paid a visit to see the giant pandas Sunshine and Sweetie.
The Australian beauty paid a trip to the zoo with her young daughters, Sunday Rose, three, and Faith, one, to see Scotland’s famous pandas, who have created quite a stir since their arrival from China in December last year.

But poor Nic didn’t get the chance to see Sunshine and Sweetie – Yang Guang and Tian Tian in Chinese – in action, as the sleepy pandas were taking a nap.
After paying a visit to the enclosure Nic and her daughters joined other visitors to the zoo for a tour around the other attractions.
And luckily for the movie A-lister, none of the members of her group even noticed who she was, allowing the family the chance to enjoy the zoo’s attractions without disruption.
A spokeswoman for the zoo said: “I don’t think a lot of people noticed it was Nicole Kidman; she had her collar up and her hat on - she just wanted to spend some time with her family.
“It’s really lovely that she took the time out to see the pandas and it was nice that she brought her daughters along. They were very sleepy today and were having a snooze at the time.”
Nicole is currently in Scotland shooting scenes for upcoming movie The Railway Man, alongside Bridget Jones and The King’s Speech actor Colin Firth.
The film is based on the true story of Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who was sent to a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in 1942.
The movie sees Colin, who plays the role of Lomax, and Nicole, who plays his wife Patti, facing up to the psychological scars following his captivity.
