We were always both so devoted, even once we were no longer together.”CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT NEWSLETTERPhillipe continued, “That made it easy. They were the priority. And you see a lot of times in these messy situations where that’s not the case, where the kids will be used as pawns or as a way to hurt the other parent, and we never did any of that stuff.””We never spoke ill of each other,” he added. “And we were always united in support of them, and now they’re both adults. “But she and I have a friendship, and we still have calls about various things in their lives, and it works out nice.”Phillippe also shared the advice that he has given his children about navigating careers in Hollywood. The actor is also father to daughter Kai, 12, who he shares with his ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp. Witherspoon shares son Tennessee, 11, with her ex-husband Jim Toth.LIKE WHAT YOU’RE READING?

I always tell people that I work to live, not live to work. I’m not defined by this industry. I enjoy it. I have passion for it. I respect it, but there are so many other things that fill my senses and draw my attention.””Everyone is lost in a sense. The judgment of others means less and less to me as I get older. Everyone’s trying to figure things out. Everyone’s on their own path. So just kind of reinforcing those ideas, I think is part of it.”Fox News Digital’s Ashley Hume contributed to this report
