The 5 (original) ladies of Big Little Lies – Reese, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley – are gracing their own covers of the US edition of In Style magazine this month! Each lady has their own cover, and inside the magazine has a new interview and photoshoot with each of them. Reese talks about ambition, female leadership, and her friendships with her Big Little Lies co-stars, and the accompanying photoshoot is a throw-back to the 60’s!
The magazine hits news-stands on May 17th (2 weeks away!), but you can read the interviews below and find the photos in our Gallery:
The 5 Stars of Big Little Lies Have a Lot to Say — About Each Other
Guess which actress is the most “rigorous,” who’s a “ninja,” and who reliably keeps “old-lady candies” in her purse.
Big Little Lies is a Very Big Deal. It is an epic, insanely entertaining, tremendously acted hit. It features an ensemble of women, from longtime movie stars to burning younger talents who are each Big Deals on their own (oh, and coming up in Season 2, Meryl Streep). But it represents more than that. It is, frankly, a triumph for the ladies. BLL is great work done by great women, with respect and craft, the conscious sharing of opportunity, and, most significantly, very real friendships.
The lives of the cast — Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoë Kravitz — have overlapped in myriad ways. Nicole and Reese have a production partnership (Big Little Lies is their brainchild). Reese starred with Laura in Wild. Laura starred with Shailene in The Fault in Our Stars. Shailene starred with Zoë in Divergent. Nicole has known Zoë since she dated her father, Lenny Kravitz, 16 years ago. And so it goes. These women’s relationships run much deeper than “ensemble cast”; rather, they have influenced and enriched each other’s lives.
HBO have released some new promotional material for the upcoming 2nd season of Big Little Lies today! There are a couple of promotional videos, new stills of the cast (the Reese one can be seen in our Gallery), and very smartly designed new Instagram account!
Only 6 weeks to go til the new season – June 9th in the US and 10th in the UK…
We’re starting back at the beginning as we work on the TV Appearances section of the Gallery, and today have screencaptures and/or stills from Reese’s first appearances on US talk shows! Reese appeared on Leno and Conan in 1998, and during the latter show she talked about Pleasantville, Twilight/Paul Newman and Cruel Intentions. In 1999 she appeared on Letterman during which she talked about The Man In The Moon and her pregnancy, and then on Conan a couple of months later she was more heavily pregnant and talked about food cravings and Election. All were great interviews – Reese was so endearing in them and I loved hearing her talk about her movies!
Screencaptures and/or stills are in our Gallery, and the videos that are available online are posted below for you:
We’re going to start to work our way through updating and (trying so hard to) ‘complete’ the TV Appearances section of our Gallery now. The first additions are super rare and special, and deserve their own post.
Way back in February 1999, MTV aired a “special weekend of winter programming” at The Snow Summit Mountain Resort in Southern California. They featured music video premieres, snowboarding competitions, performances and reality shows/competitions … and a half hour special with the cast of Cruel Intentions! Reese, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair joined host Carson Daly on the slopes for a chat about the film while 15 fans watched a preview of the film in a mountain chalet; when they’d finished watching, Reese and the cast joined them in a chalet for a Q&A session. Reese spoke about trying to make her character and relationship with Sebastien believable. We’ll have videos for you soon, but for now we’ve added screencaptures from the show to our Gallery. They are very small and of poor quality but very rare and a great addition none-the-less!
Reese has made so many TV appearances over the years, we’re hoping some of you will be able to help us complete this section. We have many of her appearances on major talk shows from the past 10 years, but if you have videos of appearances from before this, or any international shows then please get in touch!! Also, if you happen to have saved any of the videos from the site many years ago (10+ years ago) when we had a Video section, we’d really appreciate it if you could get in touch, as we lost most of them during changes in site hosts. Thank you!
As anticipated, Reese made an appearance at Apple’s big new product launch event in California today! She was joined by her co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell to tease their upcoming show for the brand – now officially titled “The Morning Show“!
Reese said that the show “pulls back the curtain on the power dynamics between men and women in the high stakes world of morning news shows. It’s a real insiders view into the lives of the people who help America wake up every day”. It’s “seen through the eyes of two ambitious, aspirational female characters,” she says – and a “prominent male” Steve Carell adds. Steve Carell said that he was “happy to provide the manliness”! Jennifer added that it’s an “honest look at the complex relationships between women and men in the workplace, and we engage in the conversation people are a little too afraid to have unless they are behind closed doors”. Reese describes it as being a “high velocity thrill ride in which we pose questions without easy answers”.
The show will premiere on Apple’s new TV streaming service – AppleTV+ – which they say will be launching later in the year. No date for the start of The Morning Show just yet though. You can re-watch the whole event in HD and read more about their new AppleTV+ service at Apple.com.
We’ve added the first photos to our Gallery, and will have more coverage for you during the week…
Entertainment Weekly have given us the gift we always knew we needed – a Cruel Intentions reunion! The cast and crew sat down with the magazine to revisit the film for it’s 20th anniversary, and it makes a fantastic read!! Find the article text below, and we have scans in our Gallery:
Cruel Intentions cast spills all the details on making the seductive teen drama
Welcome back to Manchester Prep. In 1999, audiences gaped (and gasped) as Hollywood’s teen royalty engaged in sexual debauchery and 1-percenter power games in Roger Kumble’s erotic, darkly comedic modern classic, which returns to theaters Friday [22nd March] in honor of its 20th anniversary.
Here, in an EW exclusive, the filmmakers and cast members revisit the original tale of gossip girls and pretty little liars.
After watching 1996’s coming-of-age black comedy Welcome to the Dollhouse, playwright Roger Kumble felt inspired to pen a dark story centered on a young cast. So he took the soulless aristocrats of the 18th-century French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses and reimagined them as depraved upper-class Manhattan teens.
ROGER KUMBLE (writer-director): It’s just a great story. It’s got drama and comedy and tragedy, and you can’t do that so often these days. Movies have to fit in a box. You don’t know where to put Cruel Intentions in the aisle, you know?
Over the past few weeks we’ve been continuing to work on the Movies section of the Gallery, and today the A Wrinkle In Time category has been updated and completed! Lots of high quality posters have been added, along with HD screencaptures from various featurettes. Although not one of my favourite movies of Reese’s, there’s no denying the beautiful scenery, production, costumes and hair and make-up in the film.
Tons of other stills within the Movies section of the Gallery have been updated with high quality versions this weekend too – too many to list here, but ones we’re sure you’ll enjoy when you come across them!
And so the Movies section of the Gallery is now ‘complete’! Reese has such a fantastic filmography, and it’s been fun going through each movie and ensuring we have the most complete collection of photos to document her career. There’s still lots more to come in the Gallery – including TV appearance screencaptures and more from Reese’s advertising campaigns…
