Laura threw a sleek black leather jacket over a white t-shirt, wrapping another shirt around her waist in case the temperatures drop.
Meanwhile, Reese swept her blonde hair up into a bun and slipped into a charcoal tank top that complemented her black leggings perfectly.
The dynamic duo first acted together in the 2014 drama Wild where Laura portrayed Reese’s mother despite being less than a decade of age difference.
Jean-Marc Vallee of Dallas Buyers Club fame directed the film which won Oscar nominations for Reese and Laura.

The film was adapted from a memoir by Cheryl Strayed and had a screenplay by Nick Hornby who wrote novels such as High Fidelity and About A Boy.
In December 2014, they reunited for the New York Times comedy short 9 Kisses with a cast that included the late Chadwick Boseman.
A few years later, Laura told the New York Times that before she and Reese were friends, she “ wanted to know her because of Southern family and Southern mothers. ”
Reese was born in New Orleans and raised in Tennessee, and while Laura was born in Los Angeles, her actress mother, Diane Ladd, is from Mississippi.

David E. Kelley, who created Ally McBeal and is married to Michelle Pfeiffer, adapted the television show from Liane’s novel.
Although the project was originally designed to be a mini-series, it received such an enthusiastic response that it was renewed for a second season.
The first season had blown through the plot of Liane’s novel, but she was persuaded to come up with a script for season two.
