I try not to interfere too much. I don’t have to cut the performances. Usually me and the cinematographer say:” This position so bad. It’s not very pretty. But, hey, that’s life. ‘”

He again teamed up with Witherspoon to direct the first season of “Big Little Lies” in 2017, and directed Adams on “Sharp Objects” in 2018, also for HBO. Vallée has won DGA awards for both.
