She's a multi-million dollar earning movie star, but Reese Witherpoon is just like any other mom to her two children - embarrassing at times.
The Oscar-winning actress recently opened up to Parents magazine about a situation that occurred while taking her 9-year-old daughter Ava to see country star Carrie Underwood perform.
"She (Ava) said, 'Mom I really appreciate you taking me to the concert, but will you please not embarrass me in front of Carrie Underwood by singing because she's a real singer and you're just, like a movie singer," says Witherspoon about her daughter referring to her role as June Carter Cash in 2005's "Walk the Line".
Reese's singing voice, even with the award for her role, has failed to impress her daughter. “I love to sing around the house and in the car, but my daughter hates it.”
But Witherspoon loves that they see her simply as a mom and not anything else. “Realizing you’re not anything special to the kids is always a great sort of reminder that you’re just a regular person,” she said about Ava and son Deacon, 5. “A regular embarrassing old mom.”
But for as many movies as the "Sweet Home Alabama" starlet has been in, the children have not seen their mom at work. “They know what I do for a living - that I’m an actress. But they haven’t seen any of my movies. Yet.”
And Witherspoon enjoys the simple things in being a mom such as picking up the kids from class. “I do get to be there for school fairs, plays..It’s so shocking to see my children in school and having an entire life without me.”
