Loyalty, or lack of it, is the issue with Reese Witherspoon and her longtime best friend Nicole Kidman. Witherspoon is pissed at her “Big Little Lies” co-star. And, she wants the world to know it.
“Big Little Lies” is a new dark comedy series on HBO, starring the two leading ladies. The Louisiana-born Witherspoon is reportedly fuming with Kidman for not taking time to help promote the HBO series.
Instead, her co-star said in a press release recently, Kidman’s been spending all her time on “Lion,” an unrelated film project. Reese believes Nicole had an obligation to support the show more.
A source told Daily Mail that all Kidman has been talking about is “Lion.” The source claims that Reese would have cast a random person instead had she known Nicole would put it their show “so far on the backburner.”
“Big Little Lies” premiered back in February, and received extraordinary ratings with viewers in Australia, while its expected success in the United States turned into a flop.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s well received in Australia — it’s not a big enough marketplace to justify another season,” an insider told celebrity news and gossip magazine New Idea.
Apparently, the supposed fallout between the famous gal pals wasn’t the first time they experienced tension within their relationship.
The magazine alleged Kidman told her team to “keep Reese away from her” during Oscars events last month, while suggesting the downfall of the show could conclude the pair’s business ventures together.
“They were always all smiles for the cast and crew, but there were definitely some tense arguments.”
Despite the report, Witherspoon’s rep denied the feud to the Daily News.
