Before our very eyes, they have fully matured! Ava Phillippe is a successful twenty-something. The daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe is not just an adult; even the Oscar-winning actress is fully aware of how much she resembles her mother.
The creator of Hello Sunshine acknowledged their startling resemblance to Vanity Fair in 2017 and stated, “I do see [it].” She is a lovely person on the inside and out. She just has a good soul. I’m not sure what she believes. She just thinks of me as her “mom.” My daughter and I really have a deep, intimate bond.
For Reese’s admirers, this has caused some confusion because Ava usually attends movie premieres with her movie star mother. “People always approach her. We were at a premiere, and everyone was complimenting her on her performance,” the mother of three said to E! News in February 2017. She exclaimed, “I’m not in the movie!”
Reese has asserted that being likened to one’s daughter isn’t necessarily a bad thing. “I enjoy being mistaken for her because it makes me feel so young. She makes me incredibly proud. She embraces the situation wholeheartedly. I’m sure it’s not easy to look exactly like your mother,” Reese said to InStyle in November 2021.
Ava currently studies at UC Berkeley, works as a model on the side, and keeps an active Instagram presence. She stated to EDaily !’s Pop in December 2021, “I do have a platform of some sort, for sure,” and “I want to be aware of what I am publishing.” Even if I don’t always succeed, I’ll do my best to spread well.
In addition to being best friends with her mother, Ava is also happily in a relationship with Owen Mahoney. Despite occasionally posing for pictures together, they want to keep their relationship a secret. One thing is certain about Ava’s future: nobody, not even her renowned parents, is pressuring her to pursue anything other than her true passions.
She continued to Daily Pop, “My parents have always pushed me to pursue the route that’s best for me and, you know, guide me along the way to make better choices than I might make. “I’m incredibly appreciative of that. Having parents who want you to be the person you were actually intended to be and who support you in that way is such a blessing. Therefore, I believe I’m attempting to achieve that.
