The untold truth of Big Little Lies
Since premiering on HBO in 2017, Big Little Lies has evolved into a true television phenomenon — being nominated for (and already raking in) a slew of awards. In addition to being optioned and co-executive produced by two of its stars, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, the series centers around a refreshingly female-driven narrative. It's not surprising the immensely popular mini-series has pivoted into a full-blown series, or that its second season is attracting celebrated actresses such as Meryl Streep.
Of course, that doesn't mean Big Little Lies is without any surprises. Watch one episode and that becomes abundantly clear. But adding even more intrigue to the series are these little known behind-the-scenes facts about its stars and what really goes on when the cameras aren't rolling.
