Vogue.com interviewed Reese towards the end of last month, in the run-up to the finale of Big Little Lies; here is what they talked about:

Reese Witherspoon on Who She Initially Wanted to Play on Big Little Lies—and What She Thinks About Those Critics Who Dismiss the Show as Just Another Soap Opera

We only have a few days to go until the finale of HBO’s Big Little Lies airs—why, oh why are there only seven episodes?—but we can already anticipate the massive void we’ll be feeling once the show wraps up on Sunday. Thankfully, Reese Witherspoon is here to help us cope. As Madeline Martha Mackenzie, Witherspoon’s character has become a fan favorite for her type-A personality and wicked one liners (“I love my grudges; I tend to them like little pets,” she says in an early episode). We spoke on the phone with the star and executive producer of the hit TV show, and talked about who she initially thought she would play, whether or not Ed and Madeline have a good marriage, and what she thinks about those (mostly male) critics who dismiss the show as just another soap opera.

Some spoilers ahead for those who aren’t caught up.

What drew you to Liane Moriarty’s book? Why were you excited to bring it to the screen?
I thought the book was really well plotted. I loved all the characters, I thought they were really dynamic women and very truthful in their struggles and the way that they communicated with each other. I thought it was a unique opportunity to have five really talented, diverse women on screen together, which is something that doesn’t happen that often.

Did you always want to play Madeline, or did you ever consider playing any of the other roles?
I didn’t know who I was going to play. Nicole [Kidman] really wanted to play Celeste, but I don’t know, I thought for a minute I might have played Renata. But then I was in a meeting with David Kelley and Nicole and I said I didn’t know who I was going to play and they looked at me like I was crazy. They said, “You’re Madeline!” And I said, “I am? What do you mean?” And they were like, “You are very clearly Madeline.” And I thought, “Is this an insult? I don’t know.” But then I kind of started thinking how I would do this. I started talking to Nicole, she was very helpful when I was creating the character. We added a lot of stuff that wasn’t in the book.

I haven’t read the book, but I know that David E. Kelley rewrote a lot of Madeline for you. I know the affair with her play’s director, for example, wasn’t in the book. What was behind the decision to add that?
Well, we talked about it. I just felt like everybody sort of has a secret in the show. All five of us have a secret. We’re all hiding something from each other and I felt like Madeline needed something she was hiding as well; it added a new conflict for her to resolve. It was just something interesting to play instead of just being a busy body.

On that note, do you think Madeline and Ed have a good marriage?
I don’t think of it in terms of good and bad. I think they have an active marriage, they are working on their marriage. There are aspects that are really positive and there’s parts of it there are really difficult. I don’t know what “good” is, but there’s a lot of love there, for sure.

Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, Wildly Close

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.”

February 17, 2017   •  Category: "Wild", Gallery UpdatesComments Off on 2014 Event Photos

Over the past couple of months I’ve been continuing to work on the Public Appearances section of our Gallery, and 2014 is now complete! 2014 was Reese’s busiest year to date, as she promoted Wild extensively and then celebrated its well-deserved success during the first part of ‘awards season’. She looked fabulous this year, confidently wearing a multitude of colours and designers – I think my favourite looks from this year are the Los Angeles and London premiere’s of Wild … but really, she looks amazing in all the photos 😉 Thousands of photos from these events have been added to the Gallery, so enjoy browsing 🙂

August 26, 2016   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", "Home Again", "Wild", Career, Films & Projects, Other, Pacific Standard, The Family, Video UpdatesComments Off on Video of Reese’s live Facebook chat – “Legally Blonde”, “Home Again” and more

Reese did a live Facebook chat yesterday, and chatted about the possibility of further sequels to Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama, her upcoming movie Home Again, Wild, and her dogs … among many other things! Watch the full live chat at ETOnline.

Reese Witherspoon Is Down to Make More Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama Movies

Without a question, two of Reese Witherspoon’s most beloved films are Legally Blonde (2001) and Sweet Home Alabama (2002). They’re untouchable pieces of entertainment that most of us can quote verbatim. (I call lies on anyone who says they haven’t tried the bend-and-snap. I’m doing it right now.)

And Witherspoon knows just how classic these two gems are. She already made a sequel to Legally Blonde in 2003, but get this: She is down as hell to bring Elle Woods to life again and do another Sweet Home Alabama flick. Proceeds to blast Hoku’s “Perfect Day” at frightening decibels.

”[Legally Blonde] was really fun,” Witherspoon said during a recent Facebook Live chat. “A lot of people have asked me if we’re going to make another Legally Blonde, and we’re thinking about it.” But what would the plot be? An Elle Woods baby? Paulette Bonafonté gets her own talk show? The RETURN OF VIVIENNE KENSINGTON?! The possibilities are endless.

As are the possibilities for a Sweet Home Alabama sequel. Don’t get too excited, though: There are no concrete plans in the works. However, Witherspoon is ready to get country the second everyone else gets on board. (And isn’t that the hardest part?)

“We are not making a Sweet Home Alabama sequel that I know of,” she said. “But if Disney wants to make a sequel, they can just call me: I would happily make Sweet Home Alabama 2.”

Reese Witherspoon & Laura Dern To Produce Drama Project For HBO Based On Book By ‘Wild’ Author Cheryl Strayed

Wild stars Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern have reteamed for another screen adaptation of a book by Wild author Cheryl Strayed, this time for TV. HBO has put in development Tiny Beautiful Things, a drama series based on Strayed’s bestselling 2012 book of the same name, a collection of essays compiled from Strayed’s Dear Sugar advice column. Strayed and her husband, filmmaker Brian Lindstrom, will write the TV adaptation, set to explore love, loss, lust and life through the eyes of a Portland family who live by the mantra that the truth will never kill you.

Witherspoon, Dern, Strayed and Lindstrom will executive produce with Witherspoon’s producing partner at Pacific Standard, Bruna Papandrea, as well as Jayme Lecheryl. Wild was a passion project for Witherspoon and Papandrea who optioned Strayed’s memoir months before it was published. In the 2014 Fox Searchlight film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, Witherspoon portrayed Strayed and Dern played her mother. The movie was well received, with both Witherspoon and Dern earning Oscar nominations earlier this year.

HBO already is hosting a Wild mini-reunion with the limited series Big Little Lies, in which Witherspoon is starring alongside Nicole Kidman, with Witherspoon and Papandrea executive producing and Vallée in negotiations to direct.
