Zac Efron shares the most uncomfortable scene he shared with Nicole during the Paperboy!

In his career, Zac Efron has had to do some outlandish, embarrassing things — like, say, most of his antics in Neighbors or singing “Get’cha Head in the Game” for High School Musical. So when his new BFF Zendaya asked Efron in an interview what his most uncomfortable scene was, he had a lot from which to choose. His answer is not what we’d expect, especially since it involved one of the greatest actresses ever, Nicole Kidman.

“There was a scene in this movie I did called Paperboy,” Efron begins in the interview he and his The Greatest Showman costar did for Buzzfeed UK. Now, you don’t even need to have seen The Paperboy to guess what might be the most awkward scene from the 2012 Lee Daniels flick. He’s got to be talking about when Kidman had to pee on his face after his character was attacked by jellyfish, right?

Not even. Instead, his recollection has to do with their hot and heavy makeout session.

“Basically, I was with Nicole Kidman, and it was insinuated in the scene – it was mostly improv – that we were supposed to hook up, but the director just never yelled ‘cut,'” Efron said. “We just kept going and going and going and eventually it led to us being partly undressed and things started to happen.”

Things? Oh, please elaborate, Zac.

“Yeah, we went there,” he said, probably insinuating more than he intended. “It was uncomfortable just because I didn’t know when we were going to stop. It was pretty cool, though, considering it was Nicole Kidman.”

When The Paperboy came out, Efron was a little less ambivalent about what filming that scene was like.

“I pinch myself every day, especially after doing love scenes with Nicole Kidman,” he told reporters at the time. “It was the highlight of my life.”

Nicole was invited to be part of the Los Angeles Times The Envelope Roundtable for Supporting Actresses along with Hong Chau, Holly Hunter, Allison Janney, Laurie Metcalf and Michelle Pfeiffer.

When these six actresses gathered with The Envelope to celebrate their films, they had much to say. And once they were on a roll with Times film writers Amy Kaufman and Mark Olsen, supporting actress contenders Hong Chau (Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing”), Holly Hunter (Michael Showalter’s “The Big Sick”), Allison Janney (Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya”), Nicole Kidman (Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled”), Laurie Metcalf (Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird”) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!”) had to be cut short to get them all out to their various appointments on time. Still, they covered a lot of ground — the veil of shame that has been lifted from Hollywood, polarizing films (did you love “mother!” or hate it?), sex scenes, throwing knives at people, oh, and the bird. We can’t forget that bird. Here’s an excerpt from the conversation edited for length and clarity.

Amy Kaufman: The industry is going through this transitional period, so what does it feel like to be a woman in Hollywood right now?

Laurie Metcalf: That’s a loaded question.

Allison Janney: It’s exciting to think of the culture changing. When I grew up, I always knew about this thing called “the casting couch,” and that that was something women had to navigate to get jobs. I never had to and I’m very grateful for that. But the fact that people are coming out and sharing things that they’ve been burdened with, and they’re free from them by telling their truth, it’s a very empowering time for women — but things probably won’t really change until women are paid equal for equal jobs.

Nicole Kidman: It’s actually hopeful, in the sense of people agitating for change, it’s good. It’s coming out of, I suppose, the secrecy is now being unveiled. That’s good.

Michelle Pfeiffer: I’ve had conversations with women that I’ve known my whole life. They know all of my secrets. But we’ve never had these conversations. And we’re having them now, and I realize one of the things that has kept it quiet has been this sort of veil of shame, in combination with, when something happens so much, it becomes normalized. Both of those things are being lifted, and I think that it will never be normalized again in the same way. And this veil of shame has been lifted. So I see a seismic change happening, and I’m very excited about it.

Janney: For the shame to shift to the abusers.

Pfeiffer: Exactly. Where it belongs.

It’s finally official! Big Little Lies is coming back for Season 2! Variety shares the news!

Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and David E. Kelley are re-teaming for another installment of HBO’s limited series “Big Little Lies.”

“This is inspired by the overwhelming response by audiences around the world, conceived once again by Liane Moriarty, realized by David Kelley and now in the hands of visionary filmmaker Andrea Arnold,” Kidman said in a statement. “What a journey this has been. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to keep exploring these female characters and make this series with my friends.”

Kidman and Witherspoon are set to star and executive produce with most of the rest of the cast of the Emmy winner expecting to return.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists,” said Witherspoon, who previously dropped out of “Pale Blue Dot” to free her schedule to shoot more “Big Little Lies.” “It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them. I’m beyond excited to be working with talented and acclaimed director Andrea Arnold who will be at the helm. Andrea’s unique storytelling style will be a welcome addition to the filmmaking team.”

The return of “Big Little Lies” will explore the “malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting,” per HBO. The premium cabler also promises “relationship will fray, loyalties will erode [and] the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”

Kelley will write all seven scripts, which will be partially based on a story by Liane Moriarty, the author of the novel of the same name. Kelley will also executive produce, along with Kidman and Per Saari through Blossom Films, Witherspoon through Hello Sunshine, Bruna Papandrea, Jean-Marc Vallée, Nathan Ross, Gregg Fienberg and Andrea Arnold.

Moriarty is also a producer, and Arnold, who is an Academy Award and three-time Cannes winner, is also attached to direct.

“Big Little Lies” premiered on HBO in early 2017 and went on to win eight Primetime Emmy Awards at the 69th annual ceremony in Sept. of the same year, including limited series or tv movie, limited series or tv movie lead actress for Kidman, limited series or tv movie supporting actor (for Alexander Skarsgard), limited series or tv movie supporting actress (for Laura Dern), limited series or tv movie directing (for Jean-Marc Vallee), contemporary costumes (for Alix Friedberg) and music supervision (for Sue Jacobs).
