Mary Louise Wright’s Season 2 arrival on Big Little Lies has caused quite a stir amongst the group, but there’s no one Mary Louise seems to dislike more than Celeste’s biggest champion, Madeline Mackenzie.
In this video, Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) seemingly calls Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) a bully, which just escalates their feud even further because the last thing Madeline appreciates is anyone challenging her view of herself.
“You know when I was very young, my family had just moved, and I was going to a brand new school, so I was especially scared. And my father gave me the best advice. He said, ‘Mary Louise, you just seek out the bully. Make friends with her.’” Watch the clip above to see Madeline’s classic reaction!
