Ryan Phillippe Recalls Meeting Nelson Mandela with Ava
Ryan Phillippe heads into Craig’s Restaurant for dinner on Wednesday evening (December 4) in West Hollywood, Calif.
“What an amazing life lead by Madiba. A light & inspiration to the world,” Ryan tweeted. “The privilege of spending a small amount of private time w/ Mr. Mandela as he held my baby daughter, is a highlight of my life. Mandela was bouncing Ava, then two yrs old, on his knee & called her, “future leader”. I couldn’t believe it in that moment. I still can’t.”
