Reese Witherspoon's reaction to her daughter going away to college was pretty realistic. (If you had guessed that it involved a lot of tears, well then you are correct!) The actress recently opened up about her 19-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe, who is completing her first year of college, in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "It's weird when your children go away to college. It's hard. I never imagined how it felt for my mom," Reese said. She added, "I might have gone into her empty room, laid down on her bed, and cried." Watch the heart-achingly sweet interview clip above.
