The 4th episode of Big Little Lies – ‘Push Comes To Shove’ – will air next Sunday, March 12th, on HBO. Here’s a preview:
Nathan (James Tupper) invites Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Ed (Adam Scott) to a couples’ dinner to discuss a “parenting paradigm” for Abigail (Kathryn Newton). Celeste (Nicole Kidman) prepares for a city-council meeting about Madeline’s play, and bristles at Perry’s (Alexander Skarsgård) concerns about her returning to work. Jane (Shailene Woodley) meets with Ms. Barnes (Virginia Kull), Ziggy’s (Iain Armitage) teacher, who suggests her son be medically evaluated in light of further evidence of classroom bullying. While Madeline is confronted by a skeleton from her past, her internet sleuthing reveals a key player from Jane’s past instead.

Reese Witherspoon Hopes Her Kids Know Her ‘As an Individual’: ‘You Were a Person Before You Were a Mom’
Reese Witherspoon has three kids, which seems easily manageable when compared to her Sing character Rosita’s 25. But the actress and the animated performing pig do have something big in common.
“I have three kids of my own — sometimes it feels like 25,” says Witherspoon, 40, who is mom to sons Tennessee James, 4, and Deacon Reese, 13, and daughter Ava Elizabeth, 17.
“But the idea that you were a person before you were a mom, and that sometimes you really hope that your kids know who you are as an individual,” she adds of how she relates to Rosita, a single mom with dreams of hitting the big time.
Rosita does have one thing over her real-life counterpart, though: some serious engineering prowess.
“I’m very envious of Rosita’s building and technology,” Witherspoon says with a laugh of her character’s impressive parenting skills. “She somehow builds this entire contraption that feeds all 25 children, and puts their backpacks on and says goodnight to them and reads them bedtime stories.”
“And it’s really hard to find a babysitter when you have 25 kids,” the working mom jokes.
“Singing is joyful — I think it’s an affirmation of life, and that there’s so much to celebrate in this life,” the Legally Blonde alum and Draper James founder shares.
“If one of [my kids] tells [another] one to stop singing, I say, ‘Never tell somebody to stop singing. That means they’re happy or they have song in their heart,’ ” she continues. “It’s a beautiful expression of who we are as human beings.”
Sing is available Friday on Digital HD, and on Blu-ray and DVD March 21.
The 3rd episode of Big Little Lies is titled ‘Living The Dream’ and will air on HBO next Sunday; here’s the synopsis and promo:
Hoping to get under Renata’s (Laura Dern) skin, Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) organizes a trip to compete with Amabella’s (Ivy George) birthday party. After another argument, Celeste (Nicole Kidman) succumbs to Perry’s (Alexander Skarsgård) charms before their first session with Dr. Amanda Reisman (Robin Weigert), a therapist. Madeline gets called for a meeting with Abigail’s (Kathryn Newton) guidance counselor. Principal Nippal (P.J. Byrne) announces the theme for the Fall Gala Fundraiser. Later, Jane (Shailene Woodley) seeks Madeline’s help with Ziggy’s (Iain Armitage) family tree project, and opens up about her past.
The 2nd episode of Big Little Lies aired on HBO yesterday and it was another gripping one. Reese put in another fantastic performance as Madeline, and I liked seeing more of her soft side in this episode – interspersed of course with her ferociousness! HD screencaptures have been added to our Gallery for you, and there are 3 clips from the episode below – enjoy 🙂
Reese is currently in new Zealand where she is filming A Wrinkle In Time, and she sent a video message and then phoned in to NZ radio station The Edge, where she chatted about the country and the movie.
Reese Witherspoon on New Zealand: ‘You can’t capture it in pictures’
Reese Witherspoon says her Instagram feed, full of pictures taken on her trip to New Zealand, doesn’t do the country’s beauty justice.
“It’s the most beautiful country in the world – I’ve made a lot of movies all over the world, but this is my favourite place I’ve ever shot,” she told radio station The Edge on Friday.
“You can’t capture it in pictures. I would say to anybody who comes to New Zealand, don’t just bring your iPhone – you need a major, amazing camera.”
Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for her role in Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line, is in New Zealand shooting Disney film A Wrinkle in Time with co-stars Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling (The Office), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Storm Reid (12 Years a Slave) and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover).
“We are making a movie,” she told hosts Jay-Jay, Dom and Randell. “I know it looks like I’m just having fun with my girlfriends.”
In the film, New Zealand stands in for the planet Uriel, a mountainous utopia populated by centaurs.
“We needed sort of magical locations because it’s about going to other universes,” said Witherspoon.
She promised to come back for a proper holiday.
“The food is wonderful, the landscapes are gorgeous, but most importantly the people have been so kind and so friendly, and have opened up their homes. We have all been just so touched by what a beautiful experience it has been.”
Though she wouldn’t tell what it’s like flying across the seas on Oprah’s private jet, she did reveal just where she keeps her Oscar.
“I keep it in my living room, and anyone who picks it up has to do a speech.”
The 2nd episode of Big Little Lies, entitled ‘Serious Mothering’ airs next Sunday on HBO. Here’s the promo for it:
Jane tries to keep it together as Ziggy queries why they moved to Monterey–a question for which she has no easy answers. Madeline gets news that her community-theater production might get derailed, and is outraged to learn that Renata is throwing a birthday party for Amabella and didn’t invite Ziggy. Citing tensions from the night before, Celeste suggests to Perry that they see a counselor after he returns from his latest business trip. Nathan and Ed meet in hopes of smoothing out the tensions between their wives, and themselves.
