Ryan Phillippe would not like his children to get into acting. The former I Know What You Did Last Summer actor explains that he does not want to push his children into the direction of his and their mother Reese Witherspoon’s footsteps as he does feel that there are ”more meaningful” careers than acting.
The thirty eight year old, who shares children thirteen year old Ava and nine year old Deacon with Witherspoon goes onto say that he is not against them taking the showbiz road, it’s just that he prefers another one.
Phillipe also has another litte child, a girl called Kai from another relationship (Alexis Knapp) said:
”I think there’s good and bad people in each and every occupation If they’re tough enough to handle all that would go along with it, then you know.
”And I’ve often said and I don’t mean to dismiss or demean our industry but I’d like to see them do something a little more meaningful or important.
”If I had the education and what they have offered to them as kids, I may have gone a different way.”
