In Hollywood, children of celebrities typically grow up in the spotlight. And while some prefer to stay away from fame, others have found ways to carve out their own paths within the industry. The latter rings true for Ava Phillippe. If you’re wondering who she is, Phillippe is the daughter of actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. Wherever she goes, fans will recognize Phillippe almost immediately as she bears a twinning resemblance to her famous mom — save for when Phillippe sported pink hair in 2021. (That’s not in Witherspoon’s style book.)
She has grown up attending star-studded events, like one attends birthday parties, with her parents. However, as of late, the 22 year old has begun venturing out on her own and making a name for herself. In April, she cemented her influencer status while attending events at Coachella. She’s also growing her presence in the beauty space, with a recent appearance on the Armani Beauty red carpet. She also made her debut as the face of the Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton collaboration back in December 2021. As Phillippe makes her way up the proverbial Hollywood ladder and continues to hone in on her career ambitions, the future It girl will certainly become a household name. Her 1 million Instagram followers will agree: she is the one to keep your eyes on in 2022. Ahead, read up on several fast facts about Phillippe.
