Revenge is a dish best served cold. Or so the Monterey Five thought. Meryl Streep told fans that the much-anticipated ice cream pelting scene between her and Reese Witherspoon won’t be part of the second season of Big Little Lies, but the dairy confrontation is available elsewhere.
The meme-worthy image of Reese winding up to pelt the summery treat at the Oscar-winning actress went viral last summer, not long after it was announced Meryl would be joining the ensemble cast.
On the July 7 episode of the HBO hit series Little Big Lies, and there were no cones thrown, even though a scene took place outside of an ice cream parlor. Fans took to social media to express their outrage over what could have been an epic food fight between Reese and Meryl.
“It’s going to be in the DVD extras,” Meryl continued. Hopefully that means available online to stream via HBO GO.
The Legally Blonde actress, 43, stopped by Good Morning America to dish about BLL, and that sweet scene.
"I might or might not have thrown an ice cream cone at Meryl Streep. In a scene, 'cause she made me mad... And I hit her!” she exclaimed. “Like, I nailed it! She turned around and she was like, 'Yeah you got me.'" The pictures and this interview hyped up the scene, but fans will have to wait until the ice cream showdown video surfaces online.
