Actress Reese Witherspoon discussed the ongoing controversy surrounding Rihanna and Chris Brown and revealed that her two young children were old enough to be aware of the infamous 2009 domestic abuse incident when it happened.
The Oscar winner says that she used the opportunity to educate both her son and daughter about domestic violence.
"My daughter knows what happened. My son knows as well," Witherspoon told PEOPLE. "We talk about what is abuse. I think it's important to talk to our daughters - and our sons - in order to educate them at an early age about what's appropriate and what is absolutely not acceptable."
