The 6th and penultimate episode of Big Little Lies – ‘Burning Love’ – aired on Sunday on HBO. It was a relatively slow-burning episode, but set up a potentially fast-paced and exciting finale. The episode show-cased another fantastic and particularly nuanced performance from Reese – she had a couple of very emotive and profound scenes, and one particularly hilarious scene. Madeline is in some ways taking a bit of a backseat to Celeste and Jane, who are both currently at the centre of the main part of the drama/mystery storyline, but she’s bringing real heart and humour to the show, not to mention Reese’s usual perkiness. I can’t wait to see how the show wraps up!
HD screencaptures from ‘Burning Love’ are in our Gallery:
The final episode of Big Little Lies airs next Sunday – here’s a preview:
After yet another fight, Celeste (Nicole Kidman) makes a bold move. Before the school’s long-awaited fall fundraiser, Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) deals with fallout from her past, while Jane (Shailene Woodley) learns who’s really been hurting Amabella (Ivy George) at school.
The penultimate episode of Big Little Lies airs tonight on HBO, and over the past week we’ve added HQ stills from the episode to our Gallery. HBO have also released a clip from the show which does not show Madeline unfortunately, but focuses on Celeste – watch that below. We’ll have screencaptures and clips from this new episode for you in the coming days. Be sure to tune in to watch the show tonight if you can!
Scans from 3 new/recent magazines Reese has been featured in this year have been added to the Gallery. She’s on the cover of the new issue of Psychologies (UK), which features the much-under used 2015 Time magazine photoshoot; Woman & Home (South Africa) re-print an old In Style photoshoot in a nice spread; and US TV Guide had a short feature on Big Little Lies in their February issue.
On a side note, we’ve noticed people are reposting large sections of our Gallery on blog/social media pages. In the future we ask that you post a link to the content on our site rather than simply reposting everything with no credit. Thanks.
The actresses, who star in HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” developed a tight friendship after playing “sort-of awful people” and then mother and daughter.
A mutual friend introduced Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern in front of a restaurant in the Brentwood Country Mart complex in Santa Monica, Calif. They were already aware of each other; it was 2011, and both were movie stars of many years. They had also each played antiheroines in back-to-back late-1990s Alexander Payne films to unforgettable effect: Ms. Dern as Ruth Stoops in “Citizen Ruth” and Ms. Witherspoon as Tracy Flick in “Election.” But it was merely a quick hello.
They reunited in 2014 to play mother and daughter in “Wild,” a film based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir that garnered them both Oscar nominations. A friendship blossomed quickly — playing family, as luck would have it, made them so. They now star (and spar) as rival Monterey power mothers in the new HBO mini-series “Big Little Lies,” of which Ms. Witherspoon is also an executive producer.
Speaking by telephone and email, Ms. Witherspoon and Ms. Dern talked about their fast-tracked friendship, multiple collaborations and conversations with their mothers (Ms. Dern’s is the actress Diane Ladd). This conversation has been edited and condensed.
REESE WITHERSPOON I was with Howell outside a restaurant. Howell Caldwell’s our friend who’s a first assistant director, who’d worked with Laura, and he’s this big, funny guy from Texas, and he’s like: “You gotta meet Laura Dern. You’re gonna love her, you’re gonna love her mom.” Her mom is, like, the quintessential Southern mom, and I have a real Southern mother, too. He said, “You guys are gonna be best friends.” And I remember thinking: “Could I be best friends with her? I don’t know.”
Reese appeared on US talk show ‘Conan’ on Tuesday night to promote Big Little Lies. It was a very funny interview, and Reese chatted about A Wrinkle In Time, Oprah Winfrey, her surprise Irish heritage, her kids, and of course Big Little Lies. I loved her Irish accent and Oprah impression! Plus, did you know that Reese is 63% Irish?! “It just makes so much sense!” she said, as she’s a great drinker and loves St Patricks Day 😀 We have lots of HD screencaptures for you in our Gallery, and within this post are videos from the interview:
The 5th episode of Big Little Lies aired this past Sunday on HBO and we have coverage for you within this post. I didn’t think Madeline’s storyline/development was as compelling in this episode as it has been in previous episodes, although it was nice to see a new aspect of her relationship with Ed. No doubt Madeline will place herself at the centre of whatever is going to happen in the last two episodes, as the drama builds! Further down this post are clips from the episode and the regular ‘inside the episode’ featurette, and in our Gallery you can browse through over 500 gorgeous HD screencaptures…
The penultimate episode of Big Little Lies, entitled, ‘Burning Love’, will air on Sunday March 26th on HBO. Here’s a preview:

Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) tells Nathan (James Tupper) about a secret project Abigail (Kathryn Newton) has been working on.
