She’s the rising Italian actress who plays Elena Alves in the popular new series, The Undoing, alongside Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.
And now Matilda de Angelis has revealed what it was really like getting intimate with Nicole, 53.
‘I can’t tell you if she was a good kisser or not because I was too nervous in that moment,’ she told Vogue Australia.

‘I was more worried about myself – I’m not a good kisser… I tried to steal everything I could from her, just watching her,’ added the 25-year-old.
The Undoing marks not only Matilda’s first US production but also her first English-speaking role.
The actress, who lives in Rome, spent months learning English before jetting off to New York – her first time in the city – to film the series last year.
Kiss ‘n’ tell: ‘I can’t tell you if she was a good kisser or not because I was too nervous in that moment,’ she told Vogue Australia recently
‘I was very excited; New York is perhaps the most iconic city in the world. It was so exciting for me to walk around and get lost in the city. I kept thinking, “Oh, here was that scene from that movie!” It was my favorite game,’ she told W Magazine.
Matilda landed her first professional role five years ago and has since appeared in a string of Italian projects since, including Tutto può succedere, The Prize, The Big Other and Youtopia.
Based on the 2014 novel You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz, The Undoing reunites Nicole with her Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley.

The miniseries follows therapist Grace Fraser (Nicole) and husband Jonathan Fraser (Hugh Grant), who are living the lives they only ever wanted for themselves.
But their peaceful world comes crashing down with a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations.
Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and her family.
