Reese Witherspoon Didn't Feel Bad About Throwing an Ice Cream Cone at Meryl Streep: 'I Nailed Her'

Fans of “Big Little Lies” may have been left scratching their heads after photos of star Reese Witherspoon throwing an ice cream cone at season 2 co-star and living legend Meryl Streep went viral.

But Witherspoon evidently has no regrets, as she told Variety at the launch of AT&T’s new Hello Sunshine Video on Demand channel.

“No, I didn’t feel bad about it, I felt really good about it,” she said. “Once you see the show, you’ll know why I did it, and then you’ll be really happy, you’ll be like, ‘Yes!'”

The cone in question consisted of two scoops of coconut ice cream with sprinkles, Witherspoon said, from Sierra Madre, Calif.’s Mother Moo. Witherspoon and Streep, who plays the mother of Alexander Skarsgard’s Perry from season 1, were filming season 2 of “Big Little Lies” in the city.

The event celebrated the launch of the HelloSunshine Video on Demand (VOD) channel and the premiere of original series “Shine on with Reese” on DIRECTV, DIRECTV NOW and U-Verse. “Shine on with Reese” is a talk show featuring celebrities and guests like Simone Askew (First Captain, USMA at West Point), Sara Blakely (Spanx founder), Glennon Doyle (author/activist), Candace Nelson (Sprinkles founder), and Cleo Wade (poet), along with Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin from The Home Edit’s “Master the Mess,” actress and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo and actress Shay Mitchell.
