Nicole Kidman got an unwelcome and painful surprise yesterday when a paparazzo on a bicycle ran into her as she was returning to her New York City hotel from a Fashion Week event.
According to TMZ, and as seen in images of the incident, Kidman was knocked to the ground after photographer Carl Wu lost control of his bike and crashed into her. Witnesses say Wu had been racing down the sidewalk to get photos of the actress.
The site reports that Kidman is considering pressing charges, though so far Wu has only been slapped with a ticket for riding on the sidewalk.
Kidman put on a brave face later that evening while on the red for a Calvin Klein party. "It was awful, but I got back up," she told E! News. "I was shaken up and I'll deal with it later. I'm here for this now."
She added that while she's grown accustomed to the paparazzi over the years, the constant attention can be "terrifying."
"[L]uckily I got up, but there will be a time when someone does not," she said.
