After all, The Undoing received higher ratings compared to the second season of Big Little Lies.
To make things worse, there are also talks that Kidman will be nominated for a slew of awards following her portrayal of a therapist in the series.
“Nicole and Reese used to be the best of friends but now they barely talk. Some say it’s only a matter of time until they stop speaking altogether,” the source said.
This isn’t the first time that Witherspoon and Kidman were pitted against each other.
Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman feud rumors
In July, Woman’s Day claimed that Witherspoon was hurt over Kidman’s decision not to include her in her new show.
Back then, it was just announced that Kidman would once again work with Big Little Lies creator Liane Moriarty.
“Reese could be forgiven for thinking this might be the start of a powerful collaboration between three talented women. So, to have Nic and Liane not only go at it alone but also take production a world away from her in Australia where she has no hope of being involved must hurt,” the unnamed source said.
Nicole Kidman’s defense
However, the source also said that Kidman wasn’t entirely to blame. After all, the filming for The Undoing took place in Australia, and Witherspoon couldn’t be away from her family that long.
“Nic had to pull a huge amount of strings to get the New South Wales government to even agree to this during a global pandemic, and she must have known there was no way Reese Witherspoon would be able to join her. She has two kids to an ex-husband and a young son with her current husband, Jim Toth – and everyone knows they’ve been struggling a little in their marriage lately – so she couldn’t just up and leave for the other side of the world when things are so fragile. I feel sorry for her,” the source said.
