February 18, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Video UpdatesComments Off on USA Today: What ‘lies’ mean to Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon

Murder roils oceanfront town in HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’

Looking for bare-knuckle politics? There’s no need to go all the way to Congress. Just visit your local school.

That’s where the moms of HBO’s Big Little Lies (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET/PT) take out the big guns — verbally, at least — when the arrival of a new family and an accusation of bullying disrupts a California seaside community where beautiful family facades aren’t as sturdy as they appear.

The fighting is vicious, but sometimes hilarious, especially when local firebrand Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon) and no-nonsense businesswoman Renata Klein (Laura Dern) go at it.

“I always say there’s girl politics,” Witherspoon says, “but I don’t think we’ve seen as much of the girl-politicking and mother-politicking world on film. This is how women really speak to each other: candidly, raw. They say filthy, dirty, disgusting things to each other. Then, they smother each other in love and admiration. It’s a very interesting thing to see, and I think we worked really hard on making that grounded and natural.”

Maternal power runs through the seven-episode miniseries, with the five women at its center expressing deep love but also darker emotions when it comes to their children, husbands and jobs in beautiful Monterey. And that’s before a mysterious murder — a future incident that plays in the background as the story recounts the days leading up to it — rocks the community like a tidal wave.

The star-studded drama, based on the instant (and durable) 2014 bestseller by Liane Moriarty, digs into the lives of the women, all with first-graders attending a model public school, and shows how outward appearances can deceive.

February 17, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on LA Times: Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon on bringing the female-driven ‘Big Little Lies’ to life

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon on bringing the female-driven ‘Big Little Lies’ to life

She had learned not to get excited. Australian author Liane Moriarty had gone through the process of having a book optioned for a movie or TV series before and had endured the realities of it getting lost in Hollywood development purgatory.

Moriarty, though, had never done business with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.

“When I met with Nicole, she was like, ‘No, no, no. If we option it, get excited. We don’t option things just for the sake of it. We don’t have time for that,’ ” Moriarty said by phone when recalling her midmorning coffee meeting with Kidman in a Sydney suburb about 18 months ago.

“She kept her word.”

Moriarty’s 2014 bestseller “Big Little Lies” is now a seven-episode limited series on HBO. And it boasts the Oscar-winning actresses as leads and executive producers.

It continues in the HBO tradition of drawing marquee feature film stars to the small screen. And it serves as a bit of an antidote to the premium network’s recent tent-pole attraction, “Westworld,” and the unusual religious drama “The Young Pope.”

“Not since ‘Big Love’ have we had a drama that is this female-centric,” said Casey Bloys, HBO’s president of programming. “The issues they get into on the show are things people deal with in life, and it was nice to have this framework to put these stories forward.”

Vanity Fair’s New Founders Fair to Feature Reese Witherspoon, Tory Burch, Sasheer Zamata, and Founders of TheSkimm

Women entrepreneurs from technology, fashion, media, and other industries will talk about why they started their companies, how they built their businesses, and the lessons they’ve learned as part of Vanity Fair’s first Founders Fair conference.

Confirmed speakers include actor and producer Reese Witherspoon, who also is the founder of lifestyle brand Draper James and media company Hello Sunshine; Kirsten Green, founder, Forerunner Ventures; Julie Wainwright, founder of C.E.O. of the RealReal; Julie Deane, founder and C.E.O. of Cambridge Satchel Co.; and Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, co-founders and co-C.E.O.s of theSkimm. The conference will conclude with Tory Burch, C.E.O. and creative director, Tory Burch LLC, in conversation with Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter.

The conference takes place on April 20 at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, New York, and is presented by Condé Nast.

Former Google executives-turned-entrepreneurs Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan (C.E.O. and founder of Drawbridge) and Stephanie Tilenius (C.E.O. and founder of Vida Health) will talk about how the search giant prepared them—and didn’t—to launch their businesses. Cindy Whitehead, who sold Sprout Pharmaceuticals to Valeant for $1 billion, will share the pros and cons of selling a business. And Saturday Night Live’s Sasheer Zamata and Jennifer Danielson, president of Lorne Michaels’ Above Average Productions, will discuss how digital platforms have enabled a new generation of female artists to become media entrepreneurs.

The conference will also feature serial entrepreneurs such as Nancy Lublin, founder of Crisis Text Line and Dress for Success; Caterina Fake, who co-founded Flickr and Hunch, and founded Findery and StorySet; and Gina Bianchini, who co-founded Ning with Marc Andreessen before launching Mightybell. Additional speakers will be announced soon.

Founders Fair grew from the stories of entrepreneurs who’ve spoken at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit, now entering its fourth year.

Dell is a presenting sponsor of Founders Fair. Lifetime, Barneys, and 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge are supporting sponsors.

Participation in the conference is by invitation only. More information on the event, including a complete list of confirmed speakers, may be found on the Founders Fair site.

January 31, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Films & Projects, Gallery Updates, Media Alerts, Pacific Standard, Video UpdatesComments Off on Reese and Jean-Marc Vallee on the cover of Variety

Reese and her Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallee appear on the cover of the new issue of Variety magazine, to promote their new TV series. Inside is an extensive interview about the production and planning of the show, the characters, and the casting; accompanying this is a sleek new photoshoot with the two. Read the interview and watch a behind the scenes video below, and find the first photos from the spread in our Gallery. We’ll have scans for you asap…

‘Big Little Lies’: Inside Reese Witherspoon’s Twisty Foray Into Television

Blame it on the weather. It was unseasonably cold in Monterey, Calif., when, deep into the 88-day shoot for “Big Little Lies” — after 10 straight days of late nights — the unthinkable happened: The usually unflappable Reese Witherspoon lost her temper. Faced with a difficult emotional scene, she yelled at director Jean-Marc Vallée.

Recalling the incident a few months later over tea at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, the two — who share an easy, effortless camaraderie — laugh at the memory. “I’m so sorry!” she tells him, sheepishly hiding her face in her hands. In his French-accented lilt, Vallée says, “I felt so sad because I knew it wasn’t her.”

But back in that fraught moment on the set, he turned to her and said, “Great! Let’s do it,” pushing her to channel her frustration into her performance. Vallée reports that Witherspoon — perfectly cast as the fast-talking, multitasking mother of two, Madeline Martha Mackenzie, in HBO’s new limited series about the tragic fallout of secrets in a small town — nailed the scene. (Based on the bestseller by Liane Moriarty, the seven-episode series debuts Feb. 19.)

Witherspoon, who serves as executive producer along with co-star Nicole Kidman, handpicked her “Wild” director for this creative reunion. (The 2014 film, based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, chronicles a woman’s journey of self-discovery as she hikes the Pacific Crest Trail.) “I feel safe with Jean-Marc — more safe than I’ve ever felt with anybody, because he’s my brother, he’s my partner; I know he’s always going to demand the best, but I’m always going to bring my best,” she says. “We hold each other to those standards. We don’t have any artifice between us.”

It’s not simply the cliché about finishing each other’s sentences (and, yes, they do) but about completing each other’s vision. They may disagree (see above), but starting with “Wild” and now with “Big Little Lies,” they’ve formulated a chemistry that brings out the best in both of them.

January 11, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Gallery Updates, Media Alerts, Pacific StandardComments Off on Reese and “Big Little Lies” cast on the cover of Elle US

Reese and her Big Little Lies co-stars grace the cover of US Elle magazine this month! As part of the magazine’s ‘Women In TV’ issue, the four female co-stars – Reese, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz – each have their own individual cover, and inside are new interviews and photos with them all. For now, we have a HQ cover for you in our Gallery and Elle has posted some snippets from the interviews on their website – link below. The magazine hits American news-stands on January 17th.

Reese looks gorgeous on this cover! We may need to have a new layout up soon … 🙂



Reese Witherspoon, Zoë Kravitz, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley Spill Their Secrets

Take two megawatt executive producers, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Add a pair of Hollywood’s most zeitgeisty twentysomethings, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz. Throw in a blockbuster novel about a group of upper-middle-class mothers of kindergartners roiled by sexual violence, class issues, ageism, and…murder! (That’d be Liane Moriarty’s 2014 Big Little Lies.) The result is an HBO miniseries that, even in this big-budget, high-minded small-screen era, we’ve never seen before: a seven-part thriller that looks like a movie, feels like a movie—and packs enough woman power to populate the Oscars’ front row—but grips like only episodic TV can.

January 6, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Pacific StandardComments Off on Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman reveal the genesis of Big Little Lies

Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman reveal the genesis of Big Little Lies

It began with a manuscript. In 2014, a friend slipped Reese Witherspoon an early galley of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies. The Australian author has a knack for spinning a compelling tale — her previous book, The Husband’s Secret, had hit No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list a year earlier — and this one was no exception.

“Liane’s writing is so enthralling, I was hanging on every word. I read it in one night,” says Witherspoon of the story of a wealthy seaside enclave where not everything is as perfect as it seems and the combined community secrets lead to a mysterious murder.

Her producing partner, Bruna Papandrea, called Nicole Kidman — a longtime friend since the women were teenagers — and said simply: “I’ve found the thing for us all to do together.” Kidman (who also read the book in a single sitting) happened to be leaving the next day for Australia, and while there she met Moriarty for coffee. “I said to her, ‘If you give us the rights to the book, we can get it made,’” says Kidman.

Within 18 months, a staggering number of A-listers were heading into production. Witherspoon and Kidman were joined by Shailene Woodley in the lead roles, with Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, Alexander Skarsgård, and Adam Scott also in the cast. David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal) signed on as an executive producer and wrote all seven episodes. Jean-Marc Vallée — fresh off his Oscar-nominated film Wild — agreed to direct every installment, too. (He’d been planning to direct only the pilot but had a hard time saying no to his Wild leading lady. “This is all Reese’s fault,” he says with a laugh. “I was about to take a vacation, and I was so tired. But then I read it, and I couldn’t abandon it after I started.”)

All that talent shows: The series has its fair share of humor and dark drama — and then even darker drama — yet the actresses never miss a step. “I sometimes felt like I was watching a class in acting,” says Witherspoon of her costars.

Big Little Lies premieres on Feb. 19 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Check out the trailer above.
