Ryan Phillippe and his fiancée have ended their engagement

Ryan Phillippe looks eternally young, but that’s not such a blessing to everyone in his life. In an interview with James Corden, the 42-year-0ld actor said that his young looks have an embarrassing effect on his daughter.

While appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the host was amazed that someone who looks as young as Phillippe could have a 17-year-old daughter. Phillippe responds that it sometimes embarrasses his daughter Ava when people mistake her dad for her brother.

“Which repulses her!” he told Corden. “Like, absolutely repulses her that anyone could mistake me for her brother.” Phillippe went on to talk about how the experience of helping his mom run a day care out of their home when he was growing up prepared him to be a young father.

People points out that Phillippe has a long history of being mistaken for his daughter’s brother. In an interview last march, Phillippe said, “people have thought I’m her brother, and she’s freaked out by that.”
