Ava Philippe keeps an open mind on attraction

The daughter of Hollywood stars Reese Witherspoon and her ex-husband Ryan Philippe, Ava is adept at dealing with interest in her personal life.


Recently, the 22-year-old was answering fans’ questions on Instagram Stories when one asked about her sexuality, writing: "Do you like boys or girls?" Ava’s reply was relaxed and candid: "I'm attracted to... people! (Gender is whatever)."

Currently (1) the beautiful influencer has a boyfriend, Owen Mahoney, who is, like her, a student at the University of California, Berkeley. The couple have been dating since 2019.

"It’s an odd (5) situation because I didn't grow up famous," she said. "So they are living an experience that I did not have. 

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