If you\u2019ve seen a single episode of Big Little Lies, then you\u2019ve witnessed the perfection that is Laura Dern\u2019s portrayal of Renata Klein. She is loud, obnoxious, and most importantly, loves being rich. Renata is more than confident, and a business executive at that. It\u2019s mesmerizing to watch her freak out and blow things out of proportion.
Renata Klein grows closer to the core friend group Laura Dern attends the season 2 premiere of “Big Little Lies” at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Nicholas Hunt\/WireImage Renata was a supporting character in season one, and is slowly making her way into the core friendship group on the show. Desperate to better her friendship with Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), and Jane (Shailene Woodley), it appears they\u2019ve bonded over their mutual lie.
At the end of season one, Renata and the others, along with Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) become closer after Celeste\u2019s husband, Perry (Alaxander Skarsgard) is pushed down a flight of stairs while abusing Celeste. Bonnie deals the deadly push and is now distraught because of it. Renata has grown closer to her group of friends in turn.

Dern finds a way of getting to the heart of Renata, and you feel that in the way she ferociously fights for her daughter, Amabella. Renata is determined to fight for her daughter and make sure she has the very best. Since Amabella spent much of the first season of Big Little Lies being bullied, it\u2019s no wonder her mother is so protective.
