Reese Witherspoon's Daughter Ava Introduced Her to Malala Yousafzai - Read the Amazing Story

Reese Witherspoon keeps all bundled up on her way through LAX Airport on Saturday (October 11) in Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old actress was honored at the 2014 Variety Power of Women event earlier in the week for her work with the Malala Fund, and spoke about her connection with Malala Yousafzai herself.

“I remember one day when my daughter Ava was really little, she’s 15 now, but she was 7 or 8, she said, ‘I don’t wanna go to school.’ I took the opportunity to explain to her that there are a lot of girls all over the world who don’t get the opportunity to go to school…my daughter found that astounding. And from that point on Ava became determined to help others understand the plight of women around the world,” Reese said (via Us Weekly).

“And now at 17 years old, she’s the youngest person ever to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. I was so excited to get an email this morning and I shook Ava awake and said, ‘Malala won the Nobel Peace Prize!’ She was like, ‘That’s awesome mom, I’m going back to sleep,’” Reese added.

It’s equally inspiring to see, on days like today, how people around the world are actively supporting and pushing you closer towards your goals – of getting children everywhere to get to go to school, of women’s equal rights, of spreading messages of hope and non-violence, and so much more. 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 @malalafund #Hope #StrongerThan.”

So many of the things that Cheryl goes through in the book I’ve been through, you know? I’ve been married, I’ve been divorced… Cheryl has this idea that the things that have happened to you are part of you. There’s something really beautiful about that idea.”

On her two-year-old son Tennessee: “He’s like a blond version of my husband. He’s so pretty. The older he gets, the more and more he looks like him. So cute.”
