On HBO’s new hit mini series Big Little Lies, actors Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern play mortal mom enemies, Madeline Mackenzie and Renata Klein. But in real life, the two are longtime friends. They first met back in 2014 while filming Wild, the film adaptation of author Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir in which Dern plays Witherspoon’s mother. (Strayed is also a close friend now.) They recently told the New York Times that it was the press tour that really solidified their friendship, and they palled around Portland drinking wine, eating doughnuts, and shopping for books for their burgeoning book club. Their mothers have also become close, and even watched the Wild premiere together, holding hands. This weekend, while the rest of us are watching the Big Little Lies finale, Dern and Witherspoon are on a mother-daughter island retreat with their own children, and there’s been lots of wine and selfies. Here, their best BFF moments on Instagram.
