Reese Witherspoon spills the beans on friendship with Big Little Lies co-star Nicole Kidman
Friends and business partners, Big Little Lies co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman share an intense and complex bond.
In an candid new interview with news.com.au, Witherspoon lifts the lid on their relationship, which — like that of so many female co-stars in Hollywood — has faced many a tabloid report of “secret feuding”.
“We’ve gotten along, we’ve had fights, and we’ve gotten over it,” explains Witherspoon.
The Oscar-winning actresses and producing partners clearly spend a lot of time together. “We’ve had every kind of experience together. We’ve been on vacation, we’ve worked together and we’ve disagreed about things, but I think that’s the beauty of having a real partnership with someone. Ours is a real friendship. It’s not a fake, phony Hollywood picture, you know? I really value that about our friendship.”
Prior to their collaboration as producers on Big Little Lies, they knew each other socially but became close friends once they started working together on the award-winning series, which is available to stream on Foxtel.
“Nicole and I were talking today about how fortunate we are to have each other through this (Big Little Lies) process. It’s the biggest success I’ve ever had with another woman, in my entire career, and hers. For me, to have that experience with her, to be in the trenches with her, it’s been everything.”
Both actresses are hands-on producers and were on-set much of the time.
‘She Knows’, the 4th episode of Big Little Lies’ 2nd season, aired on HBO last night – and it saw them all celebrating Amabella’s birthday with a disco-themed party. There was on-going tension between Madeline and Ed, and a great scene with Madeline and Chloe. At this point, I’d be happy for the show to focus just on Madeline!
Find clips from this episode and a preview for next week below, and HD screencaptures from the latest episode in the Gallery:
Celeste (Nicole Kidman) accuses Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) of overstepping boundaries with Jane (Shailene Woodley). Renata (Laura Dern) endures a prying court hearing with Gordon (Jeffrey Nordling). Jane opens up to Corey (Douglas Smith) at Amabella’s (Ivy George) birthday party. Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) continues to try to make things right with Ed (Adam Scott).
Reese attended a press conference for Big Little Lies in Beverly Hills earlier this week. She looked gorgeous in a purple dress, and her new short hair cut made its debut at an official event. We have lots of photos for you in our Gallery!
Sunday is officially Big Little Lies day here at Glamour Reese! The Gallery has recently been updated with another 300+ high quality photos of Reese at the recent Big Little Lies Season 2 New York City Premiere – there are so many fabulous shots in here! Reese looked chic in her Elie Saab dress and there are beautiful close-ups, but I particularly love the photos of Reese with her co-stars, executive producer Jean-Marc Vallee and writer David E. Kelley – what a winning team 😀
‘The End Of The World’ – the 3rd episode of Big Little Lies‘ 2nd season – aired last night, and was a more low-key episode compared to last week although still had some new developments. Madeline had two particularly notable scenes and we learnt more about her background. The dynamic between Madeline and Ed is always a highlight for me and I just love watching their relationship develop – one of the things I love most about Big Little Lies is how complex and layered all the characters are, and how no-one is simply either ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Madeline’s school speech scene gave me flashbacks to Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (albeit a little less positive and motivating 😉 )!

The 2nd episode of Big Little Lies Season 2 aired last night, and was a busy episode! The tone of this episode felt different, with explosive events and revelations filling up the episode. The focus was on Bonnie & Renata, with Madeline present throughout sorting things out for people – and then her own heartbreaking scene at the end. Again, her scene with Meryl Streep was just fantastic!
