How much does a little girl want to listen to her mom’s advice about love? OK, how about when Mom is Reese Witherspoon? Now that Reese, 34, has been with her talent agent boyfriend Jim Toth, 40, for almost a year, she’s apparently been feeling better about relationships, especially since her belief in love took a hit after her divorce from Ryan Phillippe, 36. Now, she’s imparting that newfound wisdom to her daughter.
“When you’re in your twenties, you think you know everything about love,” the Oscar winner tells Us magazine. “Then you get to your thirties and realize you don’t know anything and that anything is possible!” Reese says that she and daughter Ava, 11, have long conversations about the subject.
“It is important to be with somebody who’s nice to you and treats you well,” the actress (who also has a son, Deacon, 7), tells Ava. “You know, mom advice.”
Mom advice is sometimes (but not always!) the best kind of advice!
