We know and love Laura Dern as the wildly successful, headstrong, ferociously protective Renata Klein of Big Little Lies. And while the first season of the series was utter chaos for her character, Dern says the sophomore installation of BLL marks a major change for Renata.
In honor of Equal Pay Day, (ahem, today), we spoke with the 52-year-old Golden Globe winner exclusively about her career-long endeavor to close the wage gap and the NUT-trition commercial she executive produced to highlight the issue. And, as die-hard Big Little Lies fans, we of course had to ask what season two of the hit HBO series has in store for us when it premieres in June.
So what’s going on with Renata Klein, Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman), Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) and Bonnie Carlson (Zoë Kravitz) in the wake of Perry’s (Alexander Skarsgård) accidental-ish death? Well, since it’s an HBO series with a ton of clout, mum’s the word, but Dern was kind enough to spill a detail or two.
