Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman share what it’s like to work on the HBO’s Big Little Lies set.
Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman get honest for USA Today about their show ‘Big Little Lies,’ an HBO series about a town that will do anything to maintain its perfect image.
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.”
HBO has released a new Big Little Lies poster showing Reese, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley. Don’t forget: Big Little Lies premieres February 19 at 9pm.
