Julianna Margulies defends lesbian love scenes with Reese Witherspoon on The Morning Show

Julianna Margulies has defended playing the lesbian love interest to fellow straight woman, Reese Witherspoon, in Apple TV+ drama The Morning Show.

‘Who’s to say I haven’t had my own gay experiences? We’re making assumptions,’ the 54-year-old married mother-of-one told the Just for Variety podcast on Wednesday.

‘I know there was some trepidation of “Will lesbian actresses be angry?” And I can tell you I would never, ever be angry if a lesbian played a straight woman.’

Julianna plays UBA News anchor Laura Peterson, who encourages then dates TMS co-host Bradley Jackson.

‘You’ve got Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon playing these two very strong characters, and in the second season instead of bringing a man in to upset that balance they brought in a woman. Hats off to that, because the truth is women are more afraid of women,’ Margulies explained.

‘They dress for women. We don’t dress for men. We dress for each other. We want to impress each other much more…It made so much sense, and I thought, “Ah, a show that gets women. This is great.”‘

And it’s not the native New Yorker’s first time as she played the girlfriend of Kyra Sedgwick in Gurinder Chadha’s dismally-reviewed 2000 indie dramedy.

Fans can stream the next episode – titled ‘Ghosts’ – of The Morning Show’s second season this Friday on Apple TV+.
