The online tributes also included notes from Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, two of her co-stars on HBO’s Big Little Lies. Streep had joined the cast of Big Little Lies season 2, which began earlier this month, as Nicole Kidman’s Celeste’s mother-in-law Mary Louise. While on-screen, Streep’s Louise is not a fan of Witherspoon’s Madeline. Of course, in real life, there is nothing but love between the brilliant stars. Shortly after posting an online wish to Streep on her birthday, Witherspoon took to Instagram to inquire her co-stars about their favourite Meryl Streep movie. Below, are their replies.
