Reese Witherspoon spills the beans on friendship with Big Little Lies co-star Nicole Kidman
Friends and business partners, Big Little Lies co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman share an intense and complex bond.
In an candid new interview with news.com.au, Witherspoon lifts the lid on their relationship, which — like that of so many female co-stars in Hollywood — has faced many a tabloid report of “secret feuding”.
“We’ve gotten along, we’ve had fights, and we’ve gotten over it,” explains Witherspoon.
The Oscar-winning actresses and producing partners clearly spend a lot of time together. “We’ve had every kind of experience together. We’ve been on vacation, we’ve worked together and we’ve disagreed about things, but I think that’s the beauty of having a real partnership with someone. Ours is a real friendship. It’s not a fake, phony Hollywood picture, you know? I really value that about our friendship.”
Prior to their collaboration as producers on Big Little Lies, they knew each other socially but became close friends once they started working together on the award-winning series, which is available to stream on Foxtel.
“Nicole and I were talking today about how fortunate we are to have each other through this (Big Little Lies) process. It’s the biggest success I’ve ever had with another woman, in my entire career, and hers. For me, to have that experience with her, to be in the trenches with her, it’s been everything.”
Both actresses are hands-on producers and were on-set much of the time.Continue reading this entry »
Moving on through the TV Appearances section of the Gallery, this weekend we have a massive update for you! Over 3,000 photos & screencaptures from Reese’s talk show appearances in 2014 have been added. She did a bit of promotion for The Good Lie, then went on to do the talk show rounds for Wild. Reese looked absolutely beautiful this year, and I loved hearing her talk with such enthusiasm and pride about Wild! I hope you enjoy this update as much as I have
During the week we added some additional high quality photos from the recent Big Little Lies press conference – Reese looks just perfect in purple!

We continue to fill up the TV Appearances section of the Gallery, and in recent days have completed the Talk Shows from 2011-2013. Reese made many appearances in 2011 & 2012 to promote Water For Elephants and This Means War, but only a couple in 2013 when Mud was released. I loved seeing her with Amy Adams on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2013! We had photos from a lot of the talk shows from these years but a few more have been added where we’ve been able to find them. Enjoy!
‘She Knows’, the 4th episode of Big Little Lies’ 2nd season, aired on HBO last night – and it saw them all celebrating Amabella’s birthday with a disco-themed party. There was on-going tension between Madeline and Ed, and a great scene with Madeline and Chloe. At this point, I’d be happy for the show to focus just on Madeline!
Find clips from this episode and a preview for next week below, and HD screencaptures from the latest episode in the Gallery:
Celeste (Nicole Kidman) accuses Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) of overstepping boundaries with Jane (Shailene Woodley). Renata (Laura Dern) endures a prying court hearing with Gordon (Jeffrey Nordling). Jane opens up to Corey (Douglas Smith) at Amabella’s (Ivy George) birthday party. Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) continues to try to make things right with Ed (Adam Scott).

Reese attended a press conference for Big Little Lies in Beverly Hills earlier this week. She looked gorgeous in a purple dress, and her new short hair cut made its debut at an official event. We have lots of photos for you in our Gallery!
Sunday is officially Big Little Lies day here at Glamour Reese! The Gallery has recently been updated with another 300+ high quality photos of Reese at the recent Big Little Lies Season 2 New York City Premiere – there are so many fabulous shots in here! Reese looked chic in her Elie Saab dress and there are beautiful close-ups, but I particularly love the photos of Reese with her co-stars, executive producer Jean-Marc Vallee and writer David E. Kelley – what a winning team 😀
Don’t forget to check out our original post covering the event, which has lots of videos and articles from the premiere.
When you’ve finished browsing the new photos, be sure to pay a visit to our good friends over at Starring Kathryn Newton!

Reese Witherspoon – “It all began with one phone call between two friends. The show is really a testament to the power of female friendship, so I’m enormously proud.”
In between all the Big Little Lies promotion, we’ve been continuing our work on the TV Appearances section of the Gallery. Since that last update, we’ve completed (as much as possible – depending on photos/videos available!) the years of 2008, 2009 and 2010. Reese did a lot of TV interviews in these years, to promote big budget movies Four Christmases, Monsters Vs Aliens and How Do You Know – and a few for the lower-budget Penelope! In between movie promotion, she also made some appearances to highlight her work with Avon. I particularly loved her looks on Leno & Jonathan Ross in 2009! Lots of screencaptures and stills in the Gallery for you:
