Reese Witherspoon Just Hit Meryl Streep With an Ice Cream Cone on the Set of Big Little Lies

Brief spoilers ahead for seasons one and two of Big Little Lies. Proceed with caution!

Apparently, Reese Witherspoon has quite the arm. On the Los Angeles set of Big Little Lies today, the actress hit her new co-star Meryl Streep with an ice cream cone. (We can only imagine tossing the treat was essential to the scene.)

Photos of the whole incident surfaced on Twitter, where user @mattybooz wrote, "I am praying Reese pelts Meryl with that ice cream. #BigLittleLies." Witherspoon wrote back, "Oh Matt! No need to pray. I got her !"

Even the official HBO account chimed in, jokingly praising Witherspoon and saying, "Your talent knows no limits."

In season two, Streep joins the other women of Monterey as Mary Louise Wright, Nicole Kidman's character Celeste's mother-in-law.

Author Liane Moriarty, who wrote the book Big Little Lies is based on revealed earlier this year that Celeste and Mary Louise have a difficult relationship.

"She deeply loved her son … as much as any mother can love her son," she told The Daily Telegraph. "She had a slightly fraught relationship with her daughter-in-law, so it’s a very complicated, difficult time."


As evidenced by the aforementioned dairy incident, Witherspoon's character Madeline Martha Mackenzie clearly sides with her friend Celeste. But off-set, the cast of Big Little Lies has been gushing over Streep.

"We didn't think we'd get her," Kidman told ET. "It really is her standing up and going, 'I support you as women, and I believe in you," Kidman said. “I think that's a big statement from her."

Laura Dern agrees. "It's amazing! When I tell anyone in my life that Meryl Streep is joining us, it's incredible!"
