Reese Witherspoon’s son wanted to kill things after watching her new movie.

The blonde actress was amazed when a trip to see Monsters vs Aliens – in which she voices the character of Susan, a woman who swells to 42 ft 11 ins tall and then helps save the planet from an alien invasion – brought out Deacon’s violent tendencies.

Reese – who has nine-year-old daughter Ava and five-year-old son Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe – told BANG Showbiz: “I took my kids to see it a couple of week’s ago. As I was driving home from the theater I said to my children in the back seat, ‘So, what do you think is the message in this movie?’ My daughter really thoughtfully said, ‘I think it’s about never letting someone underestimate you and always living up to your true potential.’ I said, ‘That is so astute, yes, Ava, that is exactly what the message is.’

“Then I said, ‘Deacon, what do you think the movie is about? Friendship? Being an outsider?’ He said, ‘I think it’s about… I think it’s about when octopus aliens come to your planet you got to make sure you kill them.’ ”

Despite the effect the movie had on her son, 5 ft 1 ins Reese has no regrets about starring in it because it allowed her to realize one long-held ambition – to be tall.

She explained: “I appreciated it being somewhat regular sized – actually, I’m a little short. I think it would be such a dream to be able to be walk into any store and to be able to buy jeans that fit, to buy tall jeans that would be nice.”

Monsters vs Aliens is released in the UK on April 3.

hahaha very cute article indeed!!! but honestly what 9 year old talks as profoundly as Ava???!!! Reese truly has a gifted child!!!! What an intelligent thing for someone so young to say!! Not only does Ava look just like her mom, she is also a “Type A” and extremely smart from what I can tell from this!! Deacon sure is adorable too!!! Great family!! Can’t wait to see this movie!! I’ll see ANYTHING if Reese is part of it!!!! Best actress ever. Period. The end. haha
