Reese Witherspoon, 45, reveals that she’s a fan of ‘aging gracefully’ – and says her lookalike daughter Ava gives her makeup tips

Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she looks to her mother and grandmother for advice on how to age gracefully – and turns to her daughter, Ava, for makeup ideas.

Speaking to this week’s issue of Body+Soul Magazine, the 45-year-old says that skincare makes her feel good, but so does accepting the natural passing of time.

‘I was lucky to have women in my life who loved aging and getting older – like my mother and grandmother – and I saw it wasn’t something that should be looked at like a setback,’ Reese told the publication.

‘There’s something empowering about aging gracefully.’

Reese went on to say that watching her mother do her skincare and makeup routine taught her that self-esteem can be gained from self care.

‘I like to feel confident that I’m taking care of myself and that I have the best skin quality that I can have’ she added.

The Cruel Intentions star also explained that her makeup tips these days come from her lookalike daughter, Ava, 22.

‘She actually teaches me. She’s so knowledgeable about skin care and make-up. She comes from a generation of YouTube tutorials and these kids are very savvy about product and application. So I learn a lot from her’ Reese said.

Ava is the oldest of two children shared by Witherspoon and her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, who also parent 18-year-old son Deacon.

Ryan, 47, and Reese, who starred in the thriller film Cruel Intentions together in 199, were married that same year, and split in 2008.

Reese also shares son Tennessee, nine, with her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, 51, who she married in 2011.

The star recently opened up about her children growing up in the spotlight, telling InStyle that Ava is having a very different experience to her.

‘It’s an odd situation because I didn’t grow up famous. So [Ava is] living an experience that I did not have, and so are my sons,’ Reese said.

‘We are lucky enough to have friends who grew up in Hollywood and can help give them advice on how to navigate.’

‘Ava is so down-to-earth. She wants to do great things in the world. She’s studying and learning and trying to find herself. It’s a big thing in life to try different things and figure out what is really your path’ she added.
