Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington on Going ‘Toe-to-Toe’ in ‘Little Fires Everywhere’
In Little Fires Everywhere, series stars Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon play two strong-willed women and mothers, who come from vastly different backgrounds and social spheres, and whose lives become inexorably intertwined through a web of deceit, secrets and self-deception.
While their roles called for a few scenes of heated confrontation, both stars seemed to enjoy the experience of facing off against one another on screen. ET’s Kevin Frazier sat down with the pair during a junket for the Hulu drama, and they opened up about shooting some of their more intense showdowns.
“It was so much fun,” Washington recalled excitedly. “I felt a little nervous when we did it because I felt the pressure. Because people were crowding around the monitor like it was a major fight. Like it was Vegas.”
“Once we got started it felt so good to be in a scene with a scene partner who is so talented and adept and courageous in the work,” Washington added. “I mean she’s a phenom so it was really fun.”
Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Celeste Ng, Little Fires Everywhere is a tale of intrigue and domestic strife, and both Washington and Witherspoon’s characters find themselves in direct conflict — with neither willing to concede ground and both strengthened by their staunchly held belief in their moral integrity.
“I feel like it was such a good [dynamic] cause it was such an equal match,” Witherspoon shared. “We really went toe-to-toe and we both had these fierce ideologies that our characters were so really dug in about.”
The trailer for Reese’s upcoming wildlife documentary series Fierce Queens was released today, to mark International Women’s Day. Reese narrates the series, which premieres on April 6th. Quibi is a new platform that describes itself as ‘Original content in 10 minutes or less. Designed for your phone.’
Reese attended the Upfront Summit in LA on January 29th/30th, to talk about Hello Sunshine with her CEO Sarah Harden.
The annual Upfront Summit hosts more than 1,000 top investors, entrepreneurs, and leaders for an invitation-only event in Los Angeles. Forget what you think you know about tech conferences – with two days of compelling content, conversation, and connection, our Summit showcases the best of technology, innovation, and creativity, from established global brands to bleeding edge disruptors. We take on meaningful subjects with true thought-leaders. And it’s a lot of fun – it is LA, after all.
Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Harden discuss creating their media company Hello Sunshine and developing projects that put marginalized creative voices and storytelling at the forefront – how it was started, the untraditional power structure at the head of the company, and how they’re architecting the business for the next 20 years.
They also discuss how much they love data and books, about the journey of Reese’s Book Club, and what it takes to change and diversify the media landscape.
Reese attended the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party in Beverly Hills last night, and she looked incredible! Reese was with her husband for the night, and was spotted chatting to Katie Couric, Ciara, and businesswoman and author Arianna Huffington during the party. After this, the couple went on to Beyonce & Jay-Z’s Oscar party. Reese wore a silver Dolce & Gabbana heart-shaped jewel embellished cocktail dress with crystal bands, with Louboutin heels, and jewellery by Forevermark (specifically, the Rahaminov asscher diamond drop earrings, DeGem Journey ring and Forevermark by Rahaminov diamond line bracelet). Reese was a vision, I absolutely love her look! Reese was also photographed for a portrait for Vanity Fair during the event. Find the first HQ photos in our Gallery:
