REESE Witherspoon is allegedly “furious” at her Big Little Lies co-star, Nicole Kidman, for not promoting the show enough.
“Reese is furious that Nicole hasn’t done more to support Big Little Lies … all she’s talked about in interviews is Lion,” a source told New Idea .
“Had Reese known that Nicole would put the show so far on the backburner, she would have cast some random.”
NICOLE KIDMAN: ‘I’d go home and cry’
Big Little Lies opened to rave reviews in Australia in February, but according to New Idea, the response in the US has not been as warm.
Witherspoon, who is an executive producer on the HBO show, allegedly has her “nose out of joint”.
“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 the gossip magazine.
New Idea also reported the Oscar-winning co-stars have, at times, had a fractured relationship.
The magazine alleged Kidman told her team to “keep Reese away from her” during Oscars events last month, suggesting the show’s reception in the US could end the actresses’ shared business ventures.
“They were always all smiles for the cast and crew, but there were definitely some tense arguments,” the mag reported.
Witherspoon’s rep denied the report to New York Daily News.
