How Reese Witherspoon went from A-list actor to bankable producer of Big Little Lies

Reese Witherspoon took control of her career as a teen and is still calling the shots as a producer of successful films and TV shows including Big Little Lies.

It pays not to underestimate Reese Witherspoon.

The Oscar-winning actor, mother of three and super producer of Foxtel’s Big Little Lies has been finding a way to go after what she wants since her teenage years.

Enrolled to study at prestigious Stanford University, the then 18-year-old was largely taking on college at the urging of her mother Betty.

Having played small roles in movies since the age of 14, Witherspoon had already set her heart on a career in showbiz, but was being thwarted by her more sensible mother determined her daughter would get a tertiary education.

That was until Hollywood kept calling.

“I called my mother and I said, ‘Mum, they want me to be in a movie and it pays more than my tuition.’ I could barely afford my tuition, so she was like, ‘OK, well as long as you promise to go back.’ I did the movie and then I got another movie. I called her and she was like, ‘It’s fine if you are doing it but as long as you go back to college’,” a routine conversation that would continue, Witherspoon explained, “until I bought her a house when I was 27 years old. Then she was fine!,” she laughed.

More than 40 movies later, Witherspoon is still calling the shots in her career — plotting her own course and creating her own opportunities with her production company, Hello Sunshine.

She would apply this same single-minded focus and determination when it came to her latest success story — co-producing HBO drama hit, Big Little Lies with Australia’s own Nicole Kidman.

WarnerMedia Streaming Service Gets A Name, Will Include ‘Friends’ Library, Greg Berlanti & Reese Witherspoon Films, CW Series

WarnerMedia has officially anointed its soon-to-launch streaming service HBO Max, which will carry full-season libraries of Friends as well as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Pretty Little Liars.

Under new arrangements with Warner Bros Television and others, all 236 episodes of Friends — a longtime mainstay of Netflix — will come to the new service, as will an estimated rollout of 10,000 hours of programming at launch. WarnerMedia has said a beta version of HBO Max will be out by the end of 2019, with a full-bodied version in spring 2020. An ad-supported offering is also in the works, though subscription will be the first phase.

Pricing remains a key strategic question. Disney’s reveal in April of its Disney+ service at just $7 a month has set forth a challenge for many competitors. WarnerMedia is in a particular bind, with HBO’s relationships with pay-TV operators (who have partnered to develop the network over many decades) keeping the price of stand-alone service HBO Now at $15 a month. Most observers expect WarnerMedia to price HBO Max above the current level for HBO Now, though the company and its parent, AT&T, have not yet disclosed pricing details. It is also unclear how — or if — HBO Max will be differentiated from HBO Now, the stand-alone service that has racked up 8 million subscribers since its 2015 launch.

Disney, NBCUniversal and Apple are all preparing major new entrants in the streaming wars, a long-developing response to Netflix’s steady climb to more than 150 million global subscribers.

Greg Berlanti, who is locked into a rich Warner Bros deal, is also going to be supplying four new movies for the service, and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine will produce at least two films.

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.

Reese appeared on the Today with Hoda & Jenna segment of The Today Show yesterday, as part of her on-going promotion for Big Little Lies. She talked about the show and cast, but also chatted about why she likes being the age she is, her kids and her relationships with them, her priorities, Little Fires Everywhere, The Morning Show, Legally Blonde 3, and Sing 2 (she just did some recording for it last week she said). This is my favourite of her recent interviews – it’s great hearing her talk about all her upcoming shows, and how she’s matured as a person. Find screencaptures in the Gallery and watch the interview below:

The Today Show – May 31st 2019 (Screencaptures) x450








Since our last TV Appearances update, we’ve been continuing to work on this section – this is a big update! We’ve added stills and/or screencaptures – where possible – of Reese’s TV appearances between the years of 2000 to 2007. She made an increasing number of appearances to promote her films, from Legally Blonde and The Importance Of Being Earnest, to Walk The Line and Just Like Heaven, to Rendition. There are some fabulous pictures in here, including some rare ones (I’d never seen the 2006 Le Grand Journal ones before!) … and Reese is always so expressive in interviews! Some of the older screencaptures are quite small because unfortunately this is all we have salvaged from previous versions of the site, but they’re still a treat 🙂

We lost a lot of content from Glamour Reese several years ago when the site changed servers and/or owners, and subsequently we’re missing some of the interview videos we previously had – as ever, if you have anything we don’t, please get in touch – we really strive to make this the most complete archive of Reese’s career!!

Reese gave an interview for this Sooo Many White Guys podcast earlier this month. She chatted about why she started her production company, Big Little Lies, Ava DuVernay, Election, auditioning for Robert DeNiro, and recalled a funny story about Denzel Washington’s porsche when she was interning at the start of her career.

Phoebe and Reese Witherspoon Vote for Themselves
Phoebe talks to actress and producer Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies). They dish about the new season of Big Little Lies, the gender pay gap in Hollywood, and about that time that Reese had to park Denzel Washington’s Porsche when she was just an intern. Plus, Phoebe revisits one of Reese’s most infamous characters, Tracy Flick.

About Sooo Many White Guys
Phoebe Robinson is tired of being the token black woman in an ocean of white dude comedians. So in this podcast, Phoebe’s calling the shots. She’ll host intimate, funny and super honest conversations with musicians, actors, writers and comedians who are killing it in their fields–AND who aren’t white dudes! Stay tuned for the one token white guy (it’s only fair), and a whole lot of hijinks.





Reese was a guest speaker at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas in March. She spoke about the importance of women supporting women in business, how she has grown her business and worked to understand what consumers want from modern brands, how she has used social media to engage with her audience, the importance of data, her focus on diverse storytelling, and the emergence of streaming platforms. Reese said “customers are looking for companies that are deeply invested in giving back – whether it being central to their business strategy or more an outreach”. Read more about her interview below, and find a couple of photos in our Gallery.

B&T’s Big Fat Adobe Wrap Part Two: Reese Witherspoon Lights Up The Room

Without doubt the highlight of the morning plenary session was an interview between Adobe CMO Ann Lewnes and the force of good nature that is the ineffable Reese Witherspoon.

It’s not hard to see why Witherspoon has been such a success. Her charm and wit is contagious and her easy smile would melt the heart of even the most severe cynic. However she’s far more than just a charming actor. She has a steely business mind has seen her start several businesses and even change the stories we are telling. Witherspoon has set about rewriting the script for Hollywood through her production company Hello Sunshine, which she describes as a storytelling platform by and for women.

When Ann Lewnes asked Witherspoon why she created Hello Sunshine, she said she was reading a script which was the worst script in the world.
