Actress Nicole Kidman was so horrified to see the condition of extras on the set of ‘Grace of Monaco’ that she arranged hot food and blankets for them.

The 45 year old is playing the late Princess Grace in the new movie and was shocked when a number of extras were forced to work late in freezing conditions.

“About 200 extras were forced to shoot late into the night in 40 F weather wearing only light clothing. Everyone was freezing. The next day Nicole demanded that tents be set up for the extras and they be supplied with warm blankets, hot food and coffee to keep them comfortable,” contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.

“It was like she was a real princess, barking orders and looking out for her people. And her caring actions were a real hit with everyone,” the source added.
