Reese Witherspoon was anything but afraid to get wild and wet on a recent holiday in Hawaii where she showed off some simple studded earrings.

The 35-year-old mother-of-two took time out her busy schedule to treat her kids to a sunny break by the water.

Her children, by ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, seemed pleased to splash about with their mum, as Reese was pictured separately alongside eight-year old Deacon and 12-year-old Ava.

Reese met Ryan in 1997 at her 21st birthday party and Phillippe once admitted he threw up after their onscreen bust up in Cruel Intentions because of the emotion it caused him to feud with the woman he loved.

Less than ten years later, Witherspoon filed for divorce in a Las Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences.

She now appears happily married to Hollywood agent Jim Toth, who was not spotted taking part in the seaside shenanigans that seemed to bring a smile to Reese’s face.
