Reese Witherspoon Is Brutally Honest With Daughter Ava Phillippe

Reese Witherspoon makes sure she’s honest with her daughter Ava!

The 42-year-old actress recently explained that she thinks that being honest with children is important because not everything can be perfect all the time.

“I feel like I’m constantly counteracting pressure from the parents who want to make the lives of their kids golden and magical at all moments! Guess what, kids? You’re going to be disappointed and uncomfortable once in a while,” Reese explained to FastCompany.

She added, “I remember Ava crying in bed in third grade — she was on JV basketball and she was the only kid on the team who didn’t score. I said, ‘Aves, maybe you’re bad at basketball.’ She thought that was mean. I said, ‘Mean or true? ‘Cause, guess what? Your mom’s bad at basketball, too.’”
