Reese Witherspoon may be Hollywood royalty, but that doesn’t mean she’s above giving her kids a normal childhood—that includes instilling the values of strong work ethic and self sufficiency via a summer job.
Ava Phillippe, Witherspoon’s daughter (and doppelgänger) with Ryan Phillippe, was recently spotted working the hostess stand at a local pizza restaurant in Los Angeles. Despite her family’s A-list status, the 17-year-old spent her shift seating customers, setting tables and taking food orders. Witherspoon’s mini-me wore navy pants, a white T-shirt, sneakers and a choker—basically, a much less awkward us circa 2000.
With college right around the corner, Ava’s new gig is the perfect way to save up and gain some real life experience. Brava to Reese and her supportive parenting and to Ava for making her own dough.
