Reese Witherspoon and her co-stars from HBO’s Big Little Lies attended the 2017 Winter TCA Tour yesterday morning. She was wearing an orange Alexander McQueen dress. She spoke out about why it’s so important for female stories to be told on screen and why this led her to develop the series.
Answering a question about why female-focused stories are such a priority for her, she answered: “I’m passionate because things have to change. We have to start seeing women as they really are in film. And not just in a movie theater with a tiny budget. We need to see real women’s experience whether it involves domestic violence, whether is involves sexual assault whether it involves motherhood or romance or infidelity or divorce. We need to see these things because we as human beings we learn from art and what can you do if you never see it reflected? I feel like I constantly see women of incredible talent playing wives and girlfriends in thankless parts, I just had enough.
It’s a unique pleasure to be able to come to other women with a piece of material I feel deeply proud of and excited to see their performance. These are the kinds of things that shift cosciousness.”

Reese and her Big Little Lies co-stars covers Elle‘s February issue throwing in a blockbuster novel about a group of upper-middle-class mothers of kindergartners roiled by sexual violence, class issues, ageism, and…murder! 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.
On the importance of telling female-centric stories: “As an artist, I feel more strongly than ever that my job on earth is to tell the stories of the invisibles, and women have been invisible on film for a long time. Women are wives and mothers and girlfriends, but not the center of our own stories. No one’s the good guy; no one’s the bad guy. We all do deplorable things and very honorable things.”
On celebrating diverse beauty standards: “Costumes, fashion, it’s all an expression of self, and the more you push the boundaries — the more that people work at creating alternative ideas — the more it changes people’s ideas of beauty. I love that people are going, Yeah, I love a hundred different kinds of beauty; it’s not all the tall, skinny supermodel. Around the world, we have to find the beauty. Now more than ever, we’re looking.”
