The Walk the Line star revealed her eight-year-old daughter Ava has no idea her mother is an Oscar-winning actress.

Reese said: “Ava has no idea what I do and I’m trying to keep it that way. I don’t want her to start hounding me for concert tickets and things!”

The 31-year-old actress – whose divorce from fellow actor Ryan Phillippe was finalised last week – said Ava and her three-year-old son Deacon are obsessed with US TV show Hannah Montana.

She told US chat show host Jay Leno on Tuesday (16.10.07): “My daughter is eight so the coolest person in the world right now is Miley Cyrus who plays Hannah Montana.

“Ava and Deacon get to choose what they have on TV every night, and every night they choose Hannah Montana!”

Reese – who is currently starring in political thriller Rendition, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal – also said she chooses her movie roles carefully so she can spend as much time as possible with her two children.

She added: “It’s all about setting priorities. I try to be away from home as little as possible.”
