MA­JOR DRAMA

Life & Style Weekly - - Photo Flash -

A bat­tle breaks out be­tween Ni­cole Kid­man and Meryl Streep on the set of Big Lit­tle Lies!

What a big lit­tle mess! Film­ing for Sea­son 2 of the hit HBO drama Big Lit­tle Lies is un­der­way, and ten­sion be­tween re­turn­ing star Ni­cole Kid­man and new­comer Meryl Streep has thrown the show into chaos. “Ni­cole and Meryl have had an epic fall­ing-out,” a source tells Life & Style. “Ni­cole feels she’s the star of the show and is threat­ened by Meryl. Meryl’s picked up on it and the two have re­ally got­ten into it.” Ni­cole, 50, won an Emmy for her por­trayal of Ce­leste Wright on the first sea­son of the show, and Meryl, 68, agreed in Jan­uary to join the cast as Ce­leste’s mother-in­law, Mary Louise Wright. Adding a three-time Os­car win­ner to an al­ready star-stud­ded cast — what could pos­si­bly go wrong? “Their feud is af­fect­ing the en­tire se­ries,” the source says. There have been dis­cus­sions be­hind the scenes about how ex­ecs could “dif­fuse the sit­u­a­tion,” but noth­ing has helped so far. “Ten­sion on the set,” the source adds, “is at an all-time high. The way things are go­ing, who knows if there will be a third sea­son?”

The film­ing of Sea­son 2 of Big Lit­tle Lies has been loaded with drama be­tween cel­e­brated ac­tresses Meryl and Ni­cole.
