The 'Wild' star is so close to her 18-year-old daughter Ava and says they share absolutely everything with each other - their hopes and dreams.

She said: "We can talk for hours. There is nothing like the love I have for my daughter. We share every emotion with each other, our hopes, and dreams. I think the way Ava and I are most alike is our strong opinions and our empathy. From the time that she could speak, Ava has always had her own ideas, and I love to watch her express herself."

And the 41-year-old actress - who also has Deacon, 14, with Ryan Phillippe and Tennessee, five, with her husband Jim Toth - brings a lot of "energy" to the pair's relationship.

Speaking on the Love, Reese blog, Ava added: "I love being around my mom, and this shoot was an opportunity to have fun and support her work as a female entrepreneur. She also brings a lot of comfort and positive energy with her to work, and I think it's inspiring to see her personal relationships with everybody on set. I had a great time being a part of the shoot with the bonus of having even more mother/daughter pictures!"

Meanwhile, Reese previously revealed she relies on her daughter for advice because she is a "really good listener".

She confessed: "Well, my daughter is pretty good at giving advice. She's, you know what? She's a really good listener. And then my middle son, Deacon, who is 14, kind of tells me when I'm embarrassing everybody in the family. So, that's kind of good advice to know. [He's embarrassed] when I say things like lit? He's like, 'Don't say that.'"
