Nicole Kidman is looking to put her days of drama behind her.
The Oscar-winner says she never gets offered comedic roles and she'd like to change that.
"They always say I'm not funny," said Kidman Saturday at a panel for TV critics to talk about her upcoming role in the second installment of SundanceTV's "Top of the Lake."
The 50-year-old actress said she's at a point in her life where she's eager to try anything and isn't worried about failure.
"I'm willing to fall on my face, I'm willing to get back up again. I want to keep trying." she said.
She also added that she's learning about comedy from her 9-year-old daughter with her husband Keith Urban, whom she's "sure has Lucille Ball in her."
Speaking to a group of reporters after the panel, Kidman said she grew up watching comedy shows like "I Love Lucy" and her father was a fan of the satirical MAD Magazine.
"The thing that makes me close to people is laughing with them. I love it," she said.
"Top of the Lake: China Girl" debuts will air on three consecutive nights beginning Sept. 10 on SundanceTV.
Kidman plays the adoptive mother to the daughter Elisabeth Moss' character gave up at birth for adoption.
