Nicole Kidman Stars in Etihad's Virtual Reality Commercial

This is What it Feels Like to Fly First Class With Nicole Kidman

She may be an Academy Award-winning actress, but believe it or not, Nicole Kidman hasn't done it all yet.

However, the 48-year-old ticked one more thing off her thespian list of achievements when she became the first Hollywood actress to star in a virtual reality flick.

The short film from Etihad Airways gives viewers an extensive look at their A380 plane, and it's the first motion picture of its kind for the star.

Fans of the Australian-born beauty get to see her going over a script with her director and follow her journey through the impressive aircraft.

On YouTube, users can grab and drag to get a 360-degree look at the various cabins and the eclectic passengers on board.

At one point Nicole stops to stroke a falcon traveling with someone local to the UAE, while guests beside her discuss the designer scarves cabin crew wear as part of their uniform.

The clip showcases just how dynamic a long-haul flight can be with the carrier during different points of the journey from New York to Abu Dhabi (although the whole thing was actually filmed in the United Arab Emirates' capital).

For example, in the First Apartments cabin while over Moldova, you'll hear an opera singer warming up her vocal chords after washing her hair.

Meanwhile in Nicole's suite, which has her own shower and bedroom, she takes a call from a loved one. Finally, we're reminded to "expect the unexpected" from the Abu Dhabi-based airline.

All you need to do is grab and drag to fully immerse yourself in her latest offering with Etihad, titled Reimagine. 

It's not her first time filming with the brand, check out her commercial from last year when she became a brand ambassador.
