The 5th episode of Big Little Lies aired this past Sunday on HBO and we have coverage for you within this post. I didn’t think Madeline’s storyline/development was as compelling in this episode as it has been in previous episodes, although it was nice to see a new aspect of her relationship with Ed. No doubt Madeline will place herself at the centre of whatever is going to happen in the last two episodes, as the drama builds! Further down this post are clips from the episode and the regular ‘inside the episode’ featurette, and in our Gallery you can browse through over 500 gorgeous HD screencaptures…
Reese attended the opening of the Planet Hollywood Observatory at Disney World in Florida yesterday, accompanied by Mickey Mouse and wearing a cute little red dress by Draper James. Here are a couple of videos, and we’ll have photos for you tomorrow…
Reese appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden last night, to promote Big Little Lies. Reese chatted about her shared exercise regime with James Corden, the potential for a Legally Blonde 3, Big Little Lies, and Fear, and she and fellow guest Tony Goldwyn then took part in a special ‘Wig Little Lies’ game. Reese was particularly perky, and the interview was very funny! Further down this post are a few clips from the show, and we have HD screencaptures in our Gallery:
The 4th episode of Big Little Lies aired this past Sunday, and it left us with even more questions around the central mystery of the show! There were so many things I loved about this episode, including seeing Celeste coming into her own in the meeting room, the honest conversation between her and Madeline in the car afterwards and just generally more of the friendship between the two of them. Reese had some fantastic and hilarious scenes (“And next thing I know, he has his hand in my shirt … or was it my hand in his shirt? It was a reflex!”) coupled with some showing her sensitive side – I love how consistently dynamic and layered the characters are … and I’m particularly enjoying seeing how they develop the character of Ed. HD screencaptures can be found in our Gallery, and within this post are a clip and ‘inside the episode’ featurette…
HBO has released the first still from episode 4 of Big Little Lies, and it shows Madeline launching into her ‘puppet show’ director Joseph, with Celeste (who looks to be acting as her lawyer) by her side. The episode (‘Push Comes To Shove’) airs this coming Sunday …
Reese lends her face to designer Tory Burch’s’ #EmbraceAmbition project, which launched today to celebrate International Women’s Day and encourages women to ‘own their power’. Reese in featured in the PSA – watch below – and on the project website, along with many other female celebrities. Tory Burch will be selling #EmbraceAmbition bracelets and t-shirts, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which “empowers women entrepreneurs in the United States” – shop here (US only).
Today, to challenge the cultural stigmas associated with women and ambition, the Tory Burch Foundation launched the global initiative, #EmbraceAmbition. This nonprofit campaign will encourage women and girls to voice their ambition and to own their power.
In 2004, a reporter asked me if I was “ambitious”. His question made me very uncomfortable. After the interview, a friend of mine called and said, “I really liked the article but you shied away from the word ambition.” She was right. I realized that I had bought into the stereotype that women shouldn’t admit to being ambitious – that it felt, in a way, unattractive.
Unfortunately, more than thirteen years later not a lot has changed. Even though I have learned to embrace my ambition and pursue my dreams, the cultural stigma around being an “ambitious woman” still exists. It is apparent daily, in very public and private ways; from the wealth of studies revealing that ambitious women are frequently penalized for their goals to some of our Foundation’s entrepreneurs sharing that they, “Google how to appear less ambitious.” In most cases, it’s an unconscious bias that women themselves internalize.
We all can play a part in ensuring ambition is no longer a harmful stereotype in six ways:
Talk about your ambitions – do not be afraid to own and voice them.
Be mindful of your own attitudes. Ask yourself, did I just react negatively to a woman for demonstrating her ambition?
Remember that ambition is incredibly personal. Determine what success means to you. It might be to run your own company or it might be to raise your children with integrity. (In my case, it’s both.) Whatever someone’s ambitions are, it’s not our place to judge them.
Support other women. As a friend, relative, or colleague help those around you make their ambitions a reality. When we support each other, we all do better.
Engage men in the discussion. Their involvement will help reduce the cultural biases their co-workers, partners, daughters, mothers, sisters, and friends face.
Join the movement and take the pledge to #EmbraceAmbition and own your power, your drive and your dreams.
Last night HBO aired the 3rd episode of Big Little Lies, entitled ‘Living The Dream’. This episode featured slightly less of Madeline – which wasn’t to the detriment of the episode, as it was good to see Renata’s character developed more. We saw more of Madeline’s layers and the complex relationship between Madeline and well, everyone … Reese bought real empathy to Madeline this week. I continue to eagerly await more of these characters and to see how the mystery unfolds!
Further down this post are a couple of clips from the episode plus the weekly ‘look inside the episode’ featurette, and in our Gallery we have gorgeous HD screencaptures for you:
