Adam Scott embarrasses himself in front of Reese Witherspoon filming ‘Big Little Lies’
Adam Scott proves you’re never too famous to embarrass yourself.
The comedian shared a story on “Conan” Wednesday night about a time when joking with his “Big Little Lies” co-star Reese Witherspoon landed him in a sticky situation.
“One time with Reese Witherspoon and I, we were shooting a scene,” Scott told host Conan O’Brien. “It was the last scene we had together for season two, and it was a scene in a therapist’s office. In between takes she said something funny.”
The joke made Scott chuckle – and that’s where something happened he could not control.
“A string of snot, like, came out, and then wrapped around my nose,” he said. “And I just excused myself and went and found the makeup person, got a Kleenex and wiped off.”
Although he tried to play it cool, Scott said he’s been wracked with snot stress ever since.
“I came back and thought, ‘Should I reference what just happened to Reese? Should I make a joke about it or just apologize for the disgusting thing that just happened?’ And I didn’t,” he said. “For the six months afterwards until the show premiered, I was like, ‘Should I text her and, like, make a joke about the snot?’ And I never did.”
To this day, Scott said he and Witherspoon have not addressed the incident.
The 5th episode of Big Little Lies‘ 2nd season, entitled ‘Kill Me’, aired on Sunday night. It was the least Madeline-focused episode we’ve had and her storyline did not really advance … but Reese & Adam Scott are a fantastic on-screen pairing!! HD screencaptures are in our Gallery, and below is a clip from this episode (Nathan & Ed bickering) and a preview for next week’s episode.
Renata (Laura Dern) deals with the fallout from Gordon’s (Jeffrey Nordling) legal troubles and attempts to help Celeste (Nicole Kidman). Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) relives painful memories from her past.

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.

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).
