In the latest episode of Big Little Lies season 2, the scene between Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep (where Reese hurls an ice-cream cone at Streep) has been edited out, reports Vanity Fair. During the filming, the paparazzi images of the shoot had flooded social media, creating considerable buzz on the possible storyline which could have required such an extreme measure. However, once the episode aired, the build-up to the scene never got its due share and the final scene was missing.
Talking about the scene, Reese had joked to Vanity Fair last August, that she had “felt really good about it.” “Once you watch the show, you’ll understand why I did it. You’ll be happy, too. It’s one of those moments when you got to do it, even if it’s Meryl Streep… I did the wind-up, and I made sure to have proper mechanics and really focused on my target. And I got her. My softball skills paid off,” the publication quoted the actress as saying.
Fans were quick to react to the missing scene calling it the “biggest little lie.”
