Are “Big Little Lies” co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman feuding now that both have been nominated for an Emmy? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, but Gossip Cop has the truth.

An article in the latest issue of OK! quotes a supposed “source” as saying, “They genuinely did grow close while making ‘Big Little Lies,’ but now that they’re both up for Best Actress Emmys, they can barely look each other in the eye. They’re each desperate to win and take credit for all of the show’s success.” The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim that Witherspoon feels she’s most responsible for the show being a hit due to her work behind-the-scenes, while Kidman believes her sex scenes with Alexander Skarsgard attracted viewers.

But the outlet’s phony story doesn’t end with the Emmy Awards. It was recently announced Witherspoon is teaming up with Jennifer Aniston to produce and star on a new HBO series, and now the publication’s “source” claims Kidman feels snubbed. “Nic would have killed to work on that show with Reese,” says the questionable insider. “They’d actually discussed it a bit, so when Reese decided to work with Jen instead, Nic was hurt.”

A source close to both actresses, however, exclusively assures Gossip Cop they’re good friends, and the magazine’s claim otherwise is “completely made up.” In fact, Witherspoon celebrated the HBO show’s 16 Emmy nominations on Twitter after they were announced, writing on the social media site, “Wow! So thrilled about the #Emmys Nominations for #BigLittleLies! The cast & crew worked so hard to make this happen!”

Additionally, Gossip Cop already debunked rumors of friction between the co-stars back when OK!’s sister publication, Star, made a similar claim earlier this year. The tabloid alleged Witherspoon was angry at Kidman for promoting her film Lion more heavily than their HBO series, but there was no truth to that story, and there’s still no feud between the actresses.
