Deacon Phillippe Gets Pizzy Hut Delivery Job

Deacon Phillippe Gets Pizzy Hut Delivery Job

Deacon Phillippe, the 4-year-old son of recently divorced couple Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, has already secured himself a job as a delivery boy for Pizza Hut!

“He wants to be a pizza delivery boy,” Reese told Britain’s Daily Express. “Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it’s hard to see how it could be a career as such.”

Here’s what the letter from Pizza Hut headquarters reads:

“Dear Deacon,

We recently heard that you want to be a pizza delivery driver when you grow up. How wonderful! You’ve got several years to go before you can join our team, but in the meantime we’re sending you a few things, so that you can practice:

Pizza Hut uniform that’s just your size
– Mini delivery car for you to polish your driving skills
– Gift cards so that you can order Pizza Hut pizzas and deliver them to your friends and family

We have delivery drivers who have worked for us for 10, 15, even 20 years! And the same Pizza Hut drivers who deliver hot, fresh pizzas to your door have gone on to become successful businessmen, doctors, lawyers and, yes, even actors.

Deacon, keep on dreaming big and know that we’re saving a spot for you on our team. Have fun practicing your Pizza Hut delivery driver skills!

    Such a great publicity campaign of Pizza Hut’s part. The were smart doing this, so many blogs will write about this… free pub. Anyway, is Deacon looking like Reese or Ryan? I hope ( and pray) like Ryan… he’s such a sexy guy that I can’t get enough of him.

  • hs

    isn’t his last name phillippe? what’s with the letter addressed to deacon witherspoon??

    Why did they use Deacon Witherspoon? Because most of the general public have no idea who Ryan Phillippe is, while Reese is a household name. If they say Deacon Phillippe folks would be like who’s kid is that, but once they attach the Witherspoon (who is clearly the way bigger star) folk know right away it’s Reese’s cute blonde son. Simply, the name Witherspoon carries much more weight when it comes to attention.

  • julia

    that’s so cute haha

  • [~Famous~]

    ROTFLMAO @ reese’s chin

  • Colleen

    That would be nice if they’d used his real last name.

  • Natalie

    awwww cuteness!!

  • Christine

    a mini delivery car???
    (Yes, I’m aware it’s not an actual car…)
    My goodness!
    Out of the blue.
    All mothers should have access to Pizza Hut cars if their son wants to be a pizza delivery guy.
    I mean GEEZE.

  • Cookie

    Would they do this for a non celeb baby? Heck no!

  • Kelsey

    Awee That is the cutest thing ever!

  • jenny

    fuck pizzahut..they are only after some free publicity!!!

  • Anon

    Stupid. Why would they do it for a non-celevrity kid!! The whole point is to get attention. Bet Reese either does a “no comment.” thru a rep, or askes Pizza Hut to donate something to cahrity instead. She doesn’t like her kids to get attention like this. She wants them to be normal. Not celbrities. She ain’t raisin’ no futue Paris, Britney, or Brody. Or a Brandon Davis. Her kids will be grounded, they will go to college, and they will be given choices with out all the fame crap.

  • devilgirl

    Deacon is just about the cutest kid I’ve ever seen. I just want to nibble on his cheeks.

  • Starbucks addict

    How cool of Pizza Hut – love their style. I’m not that big a fan of Reese’s (I know I’m in the minority) – but she was a little bitchy about Jessica Simpson once – for no reason whatsoever – and I haven’t thought much of her since. Her son is absolutely adorable, though!

  • omg

    How f u c k i n g stupid. He is going to grow up and tell his mother to STFU and stop telling “cute” stories to help sell her movies. What a mommie dearest thing to do. She probably spends about five hours a week with the kid.

  • chrissypoo

    TAlk about deserving children…

  • Bonjour

    Ok so…. Deacon wants to be a pizza boy, so
    he gets all this free crap from pizza hut.


    yea. uhm. pizza hut is over.

  • lily

    that’s cute.

  • Thelostgirl

    Aim high!

  • jamie

    Reese is an idiot.

  • me

    Hey Reese, plenty of people make a career of minimum wage jobs because they aren’t afforded the opportunity of being a talentless woman who uses her “little miss sweet” attitude to boost their career and make obscene amounts of money.

  • Paulina

    HOW FREAKING CUTE ! he is going to be a little heartbreaker, for sure !

  • Cheri

    This sort of thing infuriates me, how about Pizza Hut sends a poor kid that won’t get any Christmas presents this year a mini car and they send a starving family the gift cards. Unbelievable.

  • Roberta

    the little kiddo is so so cute! gotta be hilarious when he puts the uniform and drives aroud with the mini car in the neighboorhood!! Ah kids!

  • bella

    funny..he will absolutely change his mind as he grows up

  • Marina

    I like Reese and her family, I think they are great people and down-to earth and what I’m about to say is in no was against them. What gets me upset is that Pizza Hut and how many other companies do things like this for famous actors and so on. To me it’s not “adorable” when only the rich or privilaged class ever see the giving side of companies. I’m sure her son is the only child that would like to be a delivery boy and is the only child that has recieved a letter, uniform and other gifts to carry out his dream! Good job Pizza Hut, continue to show the world your lovely generosity. (sarcastic by the way)

  • oscars’ fishnets

    wow they give him FREE SHIT when his parents can certainly AFFORD IT


    why do businesses give celebetards FREE SHIT! when they obviously can afford it, our whole system is fuked up beyond belief. all these hungry, abused children like pizza, too!

    The richer you get the more free stuff you get..celebrities, the smart one will hardly pay a dime for anything..walking advertisements for the companies….the rich get richer and the poor get poorer

    Why did they use Deacon Witherspoon? Because most of the general public have no idea who Ryan Phillippe is, while Reese is a household name.
    BS what you said. Everybody knows who Reese was married to, and who is the father of her children. Everybody know who Ryan is.

  • Shut the f*#k up already!

    Just because she doesn’t really want her child without a damn career(whoever the hell is me)does not mean she has to. But its cute because hes so young and its a good thing that he already has options in mind.

  • how to pizza

    I was going to work as one myself a few years back, but now I’ve got better things to do!

  • Cincinnati classifieds

    I like her like an actress very much, she is one of my favorites and I have watched all her movies. I wish somebody could come to my door with the letter when I was a child and offered me a job. I think this happens just with celebrities, because this companies know that the gesture will be published somewhere and they will get free publicity. Also besides the letter they gave him gifts, and in my opinion, they just exaggerated a little bit with this.
