Nicole Kidman seems to be absolutely in awe of Meryl Streep. The actress is currently working with the iconic Oscar winner on the second season of Big Little Lies and admitted to gasping while watching Streep act on the sets.

"We've already been shooting. It's so good," said Kidman to ET's Nancy O'Dell at the 2018 ACM Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday.

"She's just amazing, and to watch her do her craft, it really is artistic craft when you watch her, we're all -- Laura Dern, Shailene [Woodley], Zoe [Kravitz], Reese [Witherspoon] -- we just go, Gasp, can you believe it?"

In the second season of the popular HBO show, Streep plays Mary Louise Wright, mother of the recently deceased Perry Wright played by Alexander Skarsgard.

"She's got a fantastic character," Kidman continued. "It's also grounded and it's based in something very, very real, and we hope we bring you the [best] second season and it delivers. We're working hard."

Kidman, along with Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep were recently spotted shooting scenes for the second season together on April 11,  in Monterey, California. Witherspoon, who is executive producer of the show, plays lead mom Madeline Martha Mackenzie, and shared the first real look on set.

In the past, even Witherspoon has expressed her appreciation for Streep appearing on the show, and how she was extremely excited about the whole thing. "Not only do we have every cast member coming back, but also Meryl Streep is joining us,' she said on The Late Night Show with Seth Meyers before filming even began.


Opening up about the moment she found out Streep wanted to join the show, Witherspoon said: 'Well, she sent an email to Nicole and I. And it said, 'OK, I read the part and I love it and I'm going to do it.'"

"And I like dropped the phone, like mic drop, but I phone dropped. And then I called Nicole and I was like, 'Is this real life? Is this really happening?' And then I got off the phone with Nicole and I, like, hugged myself gently for a minute and said, 'This is really happening. You're really working with Meryl Streep.'"

According to HBO, the second season of the show "will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage, and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode… the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”
