Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe reunited to show support for one of their two children over the weekend.
Reese and Ryan starred in the movie Cruel Intention together, later tying the knot and welcoming Ava Phillippe in 1999 and Deacon Phillippe in 2003.
The parents divorced in 2008 but have remained supportive co-parents.
Last summer, when Deacon graduated from high school, Reese and Ryan teamed up to throw a graduation party for their son.
As Deacon’s music career launches, Reese and Ryan reunited to put on a united front for their son.
The reunion between Reese and Ryan was also noteworthy because it came on the heels of the star’s divorce announcement from Jim Toth.
