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.”

New ‘Big Little Lies’ Poster

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.


Reese Witherspoon for Elle Magazine

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.”

“Big Little Lies” Premiere Date

HBO has officially announced the premiere date for season one of Big Little Lies. The new limited drama will debut on Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT. The seven episode first season is based on Liane Moriarty’s book and is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, with David E. Kelley adapting the book and executive producing.

Big Little Lies is described as a darkly comedic drama about “three mothers of first-graders whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.” The limited series stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoe Kravitz, James Tupper and Jeffrey Nordling.

The Plot of Liane Moriarty’s Novel: “Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.”
