Reese Witherspoon Defends Hiring Male Director for 'Big Little Lies'

Reese Witherspoon and Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallée cover the newest issue of Variety.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On why she chose Jean-Marc as the director: “I feel safe with Jean-Marc — more safe than I’ve ever felt with anybody, because he’s my brother,
he’s my partner; I know he’s always going to demand the best, but I’m always going
to bring my best,” she says. “We hold each other to those standards. We don’t have
any artifice between us.”

On the female-heavy script: “I thought that was a really unique opportunity to have so many incredible parts for women in one piece of material….“Any woman who’s trying to lift other women up and create more work for women is literally just looking for parity. We’re not looking to completely take over projects. It’s just nice to have 50-50. You need male energy and female energy on every project. You need different races on every project. The deep mission to understand each other is what creates great art.”

On film vs TV: “What is film? What is TV? What is digital? I think probably within four years we’re not going to be talking about that anymore. It’s just content. Content is content. Because as an artist, the most important thing is you want to have work that reaches people.
I don’t care how it gets to them. I don’t
care if it’s in their living room, their laptop, their mobile phone — I just want them to see it.”

Reese Witherspoon Quit This Movie Because of Her Scottish Accent: 'It Was Bad!'

Reese Witherspoon made an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine with her Sing co-star Matthew McConaughey and revealed that she once had to quit a film over her bad Scottish accent.

“Accents aren’t my thing…Scottish is really…I was supposed to do…Oh no I don’t really want to talk about it!” Reese said. “I tried to do a Scottish accent once… It was bad, I had to quit the movie.”

“It’s not my finest moment. I don’t want to talk about it any more. That just came out and I really wish it hadn’t,” Reese continued.

Fans have noted that Reese was supposed to voice the role of Merida in Pixar’s 2012 movie Brave, but exited the film. The movie is set in the Scottish Highlands, and while Reese doesn’t come out and say it, it appears as if this could be the role she’s referring to. Kelly McDonald took over the voice role.

Reese Witherspoon Explains Why Female Stories Are Important to Tell on Screen

Reese Witherspoon is speaking out about why it’s so important for female stories to be told on screen and why this led her to develop the new HBO series Big Little Lies.

The Oscar-winning actress was joined by co-stars Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz while promoting the show at the 2017 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Saturday morning (January 14) at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, Calif.

“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,” Reese said (via Vanity Fair). “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 consciousness,” Reese added.

FYI: Reese is wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Jennifer Meyer jewelry. Nicole is wearing a Bottega Veneta dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and an Omega watch. Shailene is wearing a Bottega Veneta outfit. Zoe is wearing an Alexander Wang dress and Sophia Webster shoes.
