Kelly Reilly got cold feet about Beth’s wedding dress, but Taylor Sheridan dismissed her alternative idea
The Yellowstone The Season 4 finale included the last-minute wedding of Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) and Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser). The wildly untraditional ceremony saw Beth kidnap a priest at gunpoint and wear a skin-tight gold dress she used moments earlier in her scheme to threaten a man in prison – combined with a luxurious fur coat white.
Reilly admits she got cold feet at the thought of wearing this much-talked-about fashion choice. But when she pitched an alternative idea to creator Taylor Sheridan, he shot her down.
Kelly Reilly Reveals What Really Cared About Beth Dutton During Her Marriage In ‘Yellowstone’ Season 4 Finale
reilly said entertainment tonight after the Yellowstone Season 4 finale that she loved Beth and Rip’s wedding because it was “so typical of Beth”.
“She’s just not interested in a wedding party or a wedding dress or anything. All he cares about is being his wife and she knows that…I find her kinda heroic in a really messed up way,” Reilly confessed.
“I mean the way it happened was pretty wild,” Hauser added. “His assault and his golden robe, his father [Kevin Costner as John Dutton] and I look at her and say, ‘What is she doing now?’ Then she has a priest she kidnapped. It’s pretty wild.
Kelly Reilly got cold feet about Beth’s wedding dress
It was Reilly who found the gold chainmail dress that Beth wore for her wedding to Rip. She says she found it online while looking for “the most gangster-moll dress” she could have.
But when trying on the dress, Reilly says she had second thoughts about wearing it and questioned her ability to “pull it off”. According TV Insiderthis is when the British actress called Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan and presented him with another idea.
Reilly said, “‘Taylor, wouldn’t it be nice if she ran home, got into her dad’s closet and put on her mom’s wedding dress?’ He went, ‘Nah.’ And I get it: Beth doesn’t care what people think of her. She makes me a braver actor.
Beth “feels pretty good” at the start of ‘Yellowstone’ season 5
Reilly revealed that as Season 5 approaches, Beth is “feeling pretty good about everything” and she’s “confident that things are going to get better.”
In addition to marrying her longtime love, Beth blackmailed her adopted brother Jamie (Wes Bentley) into working for the Dutton family again.
“[Beth and John] use Jamie to get across things they couldn’t do. They need him to work for the family. It’s like working for the mafia,” Reilly said.
But it’s Beth’s marriage to Rip that really puts Reilly’s character in a “beautiful, solid place.”
“There is something magical about her that it is now, finally, her husband, her forever person. Marriage for her is a wonderful thing,” Reilly concluded.
Yellowstone Season 5 premieres Sunday, November 13 on the Paramount Network. Seasons 1-4 are now playing on Peacock.
