Not all jobs allow you to attack a movie legend and get away unharmed.

What was going through the head of  Reese Witherspoon while attacking Meryl Streep with an ice cream cone?

“Do not fail,” the Big Little Lies star laughed .

Witherspoon smiled when he remembered the moment he threw the dessert to the iconic actress, who will play the role of Perry’s mother, Mary Louis Wright, in the second season of Big Little Lies , the HBO series.

But it seems that it took several attempts. “I could have failed a couple of times”, but he said “it was good and very funny”.

“I have to say it was one of the five best moments of my career,” the producer shared.

In addition to this confrontation between her and Meryl of the new season, Witherspoon said, “The stories are so good this year, I think people will love to keep up with these women.”

But for Reese the most important thing is that he believes that people will want to know what happened after the unresolved end of last season.

“It’s been a lot of fun for us to explore what the consequences, you know, of the drama of the last episode,” he said.

In addition to working with the protagonists of the hit show, Reese has also been working on her own TV interview show, Shine on With Reese. “My relationships with other women are what have made me continue in life, I am so happy to share that with other people,” he said.

One of those powerful women who have inspired her over the years is none other than Oprah Winfrew . Witherspoon says the former television hostess is “an incredible business mind and a woman who has been an incredible support for other women.”

“I feel like I’m following your path,” he said.
