When it comes to gender and sexual attraction, Ava Phillippe says "whatever."

The daughter of actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe got candid with her Instagram followers last week during an "Ask Me Anything" session and responded to the question of whether she likes boys or girls in a frank and honest way.

"I'm attracted to... people! (Gender is whatever)," Ava wrote on her selfie to her 996,000 Instagram followers.

Ava went Instagram official with her college boyfriend Owen Mahoney in 2019 after they met at UC Berkeley.

Reese previously commented about what it's like to raise her kids in the spotlight in an interview with InStyle.

"It's an odd situation because I didn't grow up famous. So [Ava is] living an experience that I did not have, and so are my sons," said Witherspoon. "We are lucky enough to have friends who grew up in Hollywood and can help give them advice on how to navigate.

From the looks of her Instagram following, Ava seems to be adjusting nicely.
