Ava Phillippe Slams Online Body-Shamers


While most comments Ava Phillippe receives in regard to her appearance are about how much she looks like her mom, Reese Witherspoon, every once in a while she’ll get an unwarranted remark about her body. 

Case in point? On Friday, the 24-year-old daughter of Witherspoon and actor Ryan Phillippe called out those body-shaming her on social media. In a video posted to TikTok, Phillippe stood in front of the bathroom mirror as she applied red lipstick and revealed that she recently “achieved a major milestone as a woman online.”  

“I saw 2 different strangers commenting on my body,” she wrote. “The first said I should get on Oz*mpic because I’m too fat,” she said. “The second accused me of starving myself because I’m too thin. My weight did not change in the time period between their comments. (& it wouldn’t be any of their business if it did!)”

While purposefully smudging her lipstick across her face, Philippe continued, “It’s such bullshit. No one deserves to be picked apart for what they look like. 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.”

“Pretty is as pretty does, babes…& bodyshaming is simply toxic behavior. #loveyouasyouare,” she captioned the clip, to which Witherspoon replied in the comments section of her daughter’s post, “Yes to all of this.”

The saying “pretty is as pretty does” is a phrase Phillippe was told by her mother since a young age. “Every time that comes up in my brain or I see people bring critical of others online for their appearance, I just always think, you’re only as beautiful as you treat other people,” Phillipe previously explained while speaking with People. “As we move through the world, I find that beauty is really subjective, but what’s not is being kind and being open and treating people with respect. I think that you glow from within when you’re a good person.”
