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.

As posted about last night, Reese attended the Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood last night. Reese and her friend and Big Little Lies co-star/co-producer Nicole Kidman presented the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made For TV which went to Sarah Paulson for The People v. O.J. Simpson; Reese makes no secret of her love for Sarah, so she must’ve been especially delighted to present this award! Following the ceremony, Reese and Nicole popped into the HBO After Party, and posed with fellow HBO actress Sarah Jessica Parker. Reese and Nicole look as though they had a fun night, and it’s great to see them out and about together 😊 Reese’s movie Sing was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Animated but unfortunately lost out to Zootopia.
Reese wore a custom-made yellow Versace gown, with Louboutin heels, a bag by Tyler Ellis, and jewellery from Tiffany & Co.. She stuck with her trusted hair and make-up team – Adir Abergel and Molly R. Stern. I absolutely love this look on Reese! She pulls off the yellow perfectly and looks classic, fresh and very beautiful 💛
I’ve added over 150 HQ photos from the event to our Gallery – there are some fab shots in there! Further down this post is a video of Reese and Nicole presenting, and some articles from the night. I’ll be on the lookout for a full video and will post that along with HD screencaptures from the show asap.

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.
