Glamour Awards 2014: Nicole Kidman Accepts Outstanding Contribution Prize In Pyjamas After ‘Grace Of Monaco' Flop

Nicole Kidman couldn’t make it to the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards in London last night, however that didn’t stop her from delivering a spirited and honest acceptance speech.

The actress recently pulled out of all promotional duties for ‘Grace Of Monaco’ due to illness and accepted the Outstanding Contribution award via video link, while wearing pyjamas.

During her acceptance speech, the actress explained that she wasn’t feeling her best, stating: "I'm sitting here in bed in Nashville, Tennessee, wishing I was there.

"I'm here in my pyjamas, silk pyjamas, but they are pyjamas."

"I really don't feel like I deserve it right now so it's probably the nicest time to get something like this," she added.

Nicole has had a rough few weeks following the Cannes Film Festival premiere of her latest movie.

The film was panned by critics, as well as the Monaco Royal Family, who all shunned the glitzy premiere.

Nicole also commended her fellow winners in her short speech, praising Helen Mirren for constantly "exuding sexiness and confidence".
