Reese Witherspoon was tired of working in a man’s world.

“So often I’m the only woman on a set full of men,” the Oscar winner tells PEOPLE.

But through her production company Pacific Standard, the actress is now bringing Liane Moriarty’s female-driven novel Big Little Lies to HBO as a seven-part whodunit drama with a healthy dose of acerbic humor.

“It became this really interesting group of women whose work I’d always loved,” Witherspoon, 40, says of enlisting Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz to star alongside her in the limited series, which explores themes of domestic violence, marriage and motherhood.

“Getting to work with them every day was a pleasure,” she says. “I learned so much from each of them.”

Big Little Lies is a 7-episode series and premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

Nicole is featured on the cover of the new issue of The Edit. She talks about her new project Big Little Lies and shares about working with Zoe Kravitz. Zoe & Laura talk about their impressions of working with Nicole.

She’s laughing, but despite a career spanning more than three decades, Kidman admits that she hasn’t become immune to criticism, of her wardrobe or her work. “I’m not a fan of ‘Worst Dressed’ things because I don’t believe in crucifying people for their individual [taste]. It just seems nasty and misogynistic, so that needs to go away. I have worked with directors who are divisive, so I’m used to [criticism], and as my husband says, ‘You don’t want to have a thick skin; that’s not a compliment,’” she says, shrugging, signaling her acceptance of an unwinnable situation. “Oh well, sticks and stones can break your bones, but names will never hurt you, right?”

Luckily – although luck is undoubtedly the wrong word for it – the 49-year-old’s career has been more weighed down with praise than detraction, and after a blockbuster start she is now considered one of the great modern character actresses. “I’m dedicated to being the chameleon,” she explains. “Since I was little I was taught that when you are an actress you change the way you look and talk and move so that you create the character. That’s what I love doing; small role, big role, it doesn’t matter.”

Such total immersion can have its downsides, though. In HBO’s much-anticipated Big Little Lies, premiering February 19, Kidman (who executive produces the show alongside Reese Witherspoon) plays Celeste, an ex-lawyer-turned-suburban-wife and mother whose perfect-looking marriage to Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) belies a volatile relationship. “I was quite traumatized after [filming] because we would shoot [the violent scenes] repeatedly,” says the actress. “I was emotionally and physically traumatized. I’d come back and I’d need Keith to hold me, just to feel soothed.”

Nicole participated in the Cagle Exercise with

Any avid awards-show watcher would agree that seeing the reactions from the celebrities in the crowd is as much fun as actually watching the show — but what are the A-listers really thinking when the camera cuts to them?

Luckily, Best Supporting Actress nominee Nicole Kidman has the answer!

This week, the female nominees sat down with PEOPLE for an exclusive photo portfolio and video interviews — and Lion‘s Kidman wasn’t afraid to be honest about her internal monologue and shared some candid confessions with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for The Cagle Exercise.

“When’s the bathroom break?” the actress immediately says after Cagle asks her what she’s thinking when the camera cuts to her. “My dress is so uncomfortable. And clap! Smile!”

But when she’s not thinking about when she can run to the bathroom next, Kidman also enjoys the host’s performance — choosing fellow Aussie as Hugh Jackman as one of her favorites.

“I think Hugh Jackman was really great as an Oscar host, and he’s a really great guy, too,” the actress said.

And the Oscar winner admits the best place to keep her coveted trophy from her 2003 win for The Hours is where it’ll get the attention it deserves — her parents’ house!

“Your parents’ house because then they can show it to all their friends,” Kidman admitted.
