Reese Witherspoon's Daughter Ava Phillippe Claps Back at Online Body Shamers


29th annual critics choice awards arrivals

Reese Witherspoon’s daughter took a strong stance against body shaming this week after she noticed strangers online commenting on her weight.

Ava Phillippe, the daughter Witherspoon shares with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, shared a video on TikTok clapping back against the “toxic behavior” on Friday, May 3.

Ava’s 41-second TikTok featured a text overlay that spelled out her message. “NBD but I just achieved a major milestone as a woman online,” she began. She had filmed herself standing in front of a bathroom mirror, her gaze turned away from the camera with No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” paired with her video.

The 24-year-old wrote that she had noticed two “strangers commenting on my body.” As she began applying red lipstick, her message went on to explain that the first stranger recommended she try Ozempic, a drug that many celebrities have publicly said they use for weight loss, “because I’m too fat.” The second stranger “accused me of starving myself because I’m too thin.”

Ava noted that her weight hadn’t changed between the two strangers’ remarks, and “it wouldn’t be any of their business if it did!”

At that point in her video, Ava’s tube of lipstick took a detour, creating a bright red line across her cheek before she turned away from the mirror as the song’s chorus began.


Pretty is as pretty does, babes…& bodyshaming is simply toxic behavior. 💋 #loveyouasyouare (P.S. I put “woman” because I see this type of thing happening disproportionately to young girls & women, but let me be clear; bodyshaming is toxic no matter who the subject is. We all deserve to feel safe & at peace in the vessel we live in.)

“No one deserves to be picked apart for what they look like,” her video continued. “You don’t always know what someone’s gone through or what they struggle with. But no matter who you are…Your beauty exceeds such superficial measures.”

Ava further captioned her video by writing, “Pretty is as pretty does, babes…& bodyshaming is simply toxic behavior.” She also clarified that, while women were the focus of her message, body shaming “is toxic no matter who the subject is.”

In addition to her TikTok video, Ava shared a photo of herself with her dog on Instagram Stories as she called for people who have made comments similar to the ones she recently received to stop.

“Bodyshaming is toxic behavior,” she wrote, adding that her dog “agrees” with the statement. “So maybe just…don’t do that??”
