Ryan Phillippe may be 42 years old but his youthful appearance makes him look years younger- much to the embarrassment of his teenage daughter Ava!
The actor appeared on The Late, Late Show With James Corden on Wednesday, and admitted that 17 year old Ava gets “embarrassed” by his youthful looks.
“I get mistaken for her brother at times, which repulses her,” he said. “It absolutely repulses her that anyone could mistake me for being her brother.”
Phillippe was only 25 when he became a first time dad with his then wife Reese Witherspoon. The couple also went on to have son Deacon, who is now 13 years old.
The actor also has a third child, daughter Kailani Merizalde, who he had with Pitch Perfect actress Alexis Knapp in 2011.
The actor may have been young in the eyes of today’s society to become a dad, but he says he was more than adequately prepared for the role and responsibilities that come with being a parent. Phillippe credits the fact that his mum ran a daycare centre from their family home for being the reason he is so well accustomed to kids.
“It made me ready to be a young father because I grew up raising kids,” he said. “I grew up working in the day care. I would teach the kids to swim, I would do magic shows for them.”
