Reese Witherspoon Talks “Big Little Lies” Season 2 and Throwing Ice Cream at Meryl Streep


It’s no secret that Reese Witherspoon is a woman of many talents— and as it turns out, the girl has one heck of a thrower’s arm, and Meryl Streep can confirm it.

Earlier this summer, photos from Reese’s hit show “Big Little Lies” were leaked, showing Reese hurling an ice cream cone at none other than Meryl Streep, the show’s newest cast member.

Reese visited Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” to talk about her upcoming book release, Whiskey in a Teacup, where she was asked about the alleged ice cream cone incident.

“It is true that I threw an ice cream cone at Meryl Streep,” Reese told Jimmy. “But I really hucked it at her, y’all— and I nailed it.” Oh, Reese.

When Jimmy asked what shows she likes to watch aside from her own, she shared that, like the rest of us, she’s obsessed with “Fixer Upper” and Chip and Joanna Gaines. “He fixes everything, she designs everything, and they’re amazing,” she said.

Reese said she and her husband are so obsessed with the show that they dream of having their own show called Dirty River Flippers. “We’re gonna have our own show called Dirty River Flippers— we’re just gonna take houses that have a view of a dirty river and just imagine what it would be like if it was better.”

Reese’s new lifestyle book, Whiskey in a Teacup, is available now!
