The Australian actress is a star of the new film The Beguiled and the location is the same one used in Bey’s Sorry video, starring Serena Williams.
A number of songs on the LEMONADE visual album were filmed at the New Orleans plantation, which in Nicole’s film is meant to be located in Virginia.
Her co-stars, Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst, recreated a photo from the Sorry video in one of the chairs found in the 19th century plantation.
“It was a huge deal,” Elle told Entertainment Weekly. “We were freaking out when we heard that. We didn’t know, and then we found out midway through filming that that was the house.
“That chair that was there was the actual chair that Beyoncé and Serena were sitting in. [Kirsten and I] were like oh my god, like, ‘Okay, you’ll be Beyoncé, and I’ll be Serena, we have to recreate it’.”
The Beguiled is the latest film from Oscar-winning director Sofia Coppola.

“I haven’t really done a genre film,” she told EW. “It was fun to figure out how to approach that but still [keep the film] in my style, and to have this kind of beautiful, dreamy world that I like — but with a plot!”
The gothic period drama is based on the 1966 Thomas Cullinan novel and set at a girls’ school in Virginia during the American Civil War.
