Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has become a chauffeur.

The Oscar-winning actress - who has an eight-year-old daughter, Ava, and a four-year-old son, Deacon, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - admits she spends nearly all of her time driving her kids around.

Talking about motherhood, she said: "I think probably that no one warns you that you don't sleep the first year - that's one of them.

"And you basically become a limo driver by the time they're nine. I'm a professional driver now."

However, Reese - who is now dating Hollywood heartthrob Jake Gyllenhaal - refuses to let Ava and Deacon dictate what they listen to in the car.

She added to "I force my children to listen to my radio stations and they listen to a lot of country music. Very unhappily!"

Reese recently revealed she wanted her children to be bullied at school because the experience will be character building.

She said: "I wouldn't want my children to miss out on any of that teasing and bullying - don't you think it kind of makes you who you are?

"I distinctly recall the two weeks of crying because I didn't make the softball team. It made me interesting. Hopefully, it helps kids understand who they are."
