Despite being the most important character in the show, Matilda de Angelis has relatively little screen time in The Undoing. But whenever she’s on screen… WATCH OUT! She teals every scene right out from under Nicole Kidman‘s pinched little nose. That body! Those eyes! The weird vibes she gives off! She’s mesmerizing!
“I’ve been in love with her basically all my life, and on the day I was supposed to meet her, and when she arrived – she doesn’t walk, she floats on the air like an angel – I was just struck by how beautiful and charming she was,” the star said.
De Angelis said she “instantly” felt comfortable after meeting Kidman, and weighed in on that kissing scene.
“Wow. I loved it. I was so proud,” De Angelis said of locking lips on camera with Kidman, who played the role of Grace Fraser. “I think of it as my first kiss.”
“She’s been my favorite actress since I was a little girl. It’s something that just doesn’t happen to [citizens from my hometown in Italy],” she said.
And about being naked on camera:
“Whether it’s my eyes, or my mouth, or my boobs or my vagina, my body is just another tool to express myself. It’s still me. As long as the goal is to communicate something complex, then nakedness can be a powerful way to express and persuade,” she said.
I nominate her as THE breakout star of the year!
