Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman had worked together in the hit TV show Big Little Lies in 2017 and tabloid speculated that the two are feuding.
Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are no doubt among the most popular female celebrities today. Due to their success, they are often compared and one outlet claimed that they are not on speaking terms.
Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman feuding rumor
Earlier this year, Life & Style published a report claiming that Reese Witherspoon was jealous of Nicole Kidman. The Legally Blonde star is allegedly not happy with all the praises her friend was getting for her HBO series The Undoing.
Kidman’s solo success in the TV mini-series opposite Hugh Grant allegedly didn’t sit well with Witherspoon. The Undoing drew the network’s biggest audience since Big Little Lies Season 2 finale and many were talking about Kidman sweeping awards again, the unnamed source said.
The outlet also brought up the rumored tension between the two in 2018 when Kidman received a Golden Globe and an Emmy over Witherspoon. It claimed that Kidman was involved in another adaption from Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty without Witherspoon which allegedly became another point of contention between the two.
“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 unnamed tipster said.

Feud rumor debunked
Gossip Cop examined the report and debunked it because it has no story to tell. Rather it found the article sexist for assuming that two good actresses working together had to fight.
The claim that they haven’t seen each other is also not a big deal because it is pandemic. When Kidman was in the U.S. it was still lockdown and could not travel. The Moulin Rouge! star has since been busy filming Nine Perfect Stranger in Australia.
Gossip Cop concluded that the two are not feuding.
Reese and Nicole’s friendship examined
Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman have remained good friends even after they filmed Big Little Lies. The alleged tension and feuding between the two are also not true. In fact, The Morning Show star paid a sweet birthday tribute to Kidman on Sunday.
She shared an adorable photo of them together on Instagram. In the picture, they are seated next to each other. They are leaning on one another while holding each other’s hands. Witherspoon accompanied it with a sweet caption expressing how much she loved her co-star.
“Oh how I love this brilliant/ gorgeous / talented woman to the moon and back!,” she wrote. She also encouraged others to send Kidman “birthday love.”
