Ryan Phillippe said that she and ex-wife Reese Witherspoon have created a game to keep their kids safe from paparazzi.
The actor, who separated from the upcoming “Water for Elephants” star in October 2006, revealed that he still struggles to cope when photographers appear around their children Ava, 11, and 7-year-old Deacon.
He told People: “Sometimes we’ll make it a game. I’ll be like, let’s sneak out the back and so they can’t get a picture of us. We’ll make it a little team effort thing that they can kind of get into.
“Reese and I both do a lot of explaining. I think the best thing you can do for kids in any situation is to over-explain even, and really go into detail and say, okay all they want is a photograph and it’s worth money to them because Mum does movies, Dad does movies.”
The actor who is currently dating Amanda Seyfried added, “My son is a little more carefree, but [Ava is] becoming a young woman. She’s 11 years old and she doesn’t want to be photographed and be seen by her friends in magazines all the time.”
