Laura Dern has been spending her ‘greatest week ever’ with her icon Meryl Streep, and she cannot stop gushing about it! The actress is set to join Big Little Lies in season two, and the other cast members have made sure to properly initiate Streep into their gang.
Dern referred to the experienced actress as ‘my icon, my legend’ and opened up about how it felt to spend the last few days together with her.
While on the red carpet at the Oscars, Laura revealed that ‘Because I have this gift of being the actors’ branch’s governor, I’ve had dinners with her, I’ve had breakfasts with her. Because of Big Little Lies, we had brunch as well as lunch. I looked at her after 4 days of this and said, ‘I have had every meal with Meryl Streep. How did this happen to me? It is the greatest week ever!’’
The other stars of the critically-acclaimed series Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, Reese Witherspoon as well as Dern are set to reprise their original roles, so adding Streep’s character to the bunch is the most significant change season two brings.
As they are all getting ready to shoot together, Meryl Streep has already been added to the text chain!
‘We’re digging deep,’ Dern said.
At the big awards show, Laura Dern wore a Calvin Klein dress and accessorized with Swarovski jewels.
She looked absolutely stunning! Check it out!
As you may already know, she serves as one of the presenters at the 90th Academy Awards, and we’re sure she is very honored.
