In a recent interview, actor Ryan Phillippe, 32, talked about how his children, Ava Elizabeth, 8 on September 9, and Deacon Reese, 3 1/2, do not like having celebrities for parents. Their mother is actress Reese Witherspoon. Ryan said,
My daughter does not like it at all. She hates that her parents are famous. The paparazzi really scare her. It really freaks kids out to have grown tattooed men with criminal records follow them about. She doesn’t like how kids will come out and befriend her, just because of who her mom or dad is. That’s very hard.
Although Ryan has made his career in the acting business, it appears that he does not wish the same for his children. The actor stated,
People often ask me if I would like them to be in the business, and I have to say no. I would not like people to write things about them like they have written about me. I wouldn’t be happy if they went into the business.
