‘Gender is whatever’: A-lister’s kid shares Pride Month news

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s daughter, Ava, kicked off America’s Pride Month by opening up about her sexuality.

The 24-year-old, who has over a million followers on Instagram, shared an important message on the platform.

Ava posted a photo of herself waving a rainbow flag and shared a heartfelt caption.

“A girl once said on the Internet that gender is regardless of her sexuality. Many took her words out of context, but she knew what she meant. Anyway, this is her post for the first day of Pride Month 2024,” she wrote.

Pride Month, which begins on June 1 for Americans, is dedicated to honoring and championing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride.

The movie star’s daughter had it in mind when she hit the headlines in 2022 after answering a question about her sexuality during an Instagram Q&A.

At the time, she responded by saying that she was “attracted to people” and stated that “gender is whatever.”

She did not comment further.

Ava’s pride post comes after she recently called out body shamers on TikTok.

The 24-year-old wrote that she reached a “big milestone” as a woman online after two strangers commented on her body and said completely different things.

“He was the first to say … I’m overweight. Another accused me of starving myself because I was too thin. My weight did not change in the time between their comments,” she wrote.

Ava argued that even if her weight did change, it wouldn’t be anyone’s “business” if it did. She called the comments about her body “bullshit”.

Aside from being active on social media, which is just a rite of passage for every Gen Zer, Ava hasn’t quite embraced a Hollywood career. When your parents fell in love on set Cruel intentionseffortlessly grabbing some acting work would be an easy path for the 24-year-old.

She has modeled for brands such as Beyoncé’s fashion label Ivy and makeup brand Pat McGrath. She also opted for a more normal life, ditching Hollywood for college and attending UC Berkeley.

He is also very close to his famous mother, Reese. For her 47th birthday, she took to Instagram to describe her as a “legendary lady” and a “force of nature”.

“While she inspires me to no end and I am so proud of all she has accomplished, what I admire most is the way she navigates the world as a curious, considerate, kind and loving person,” she wrote.

“How did I get so lucky to have a daughter like you?” Reese commented under the gushing post.
