— -- Reese Witherspoon has long been considered one of America's sweethearts, but not everybody looks at her that way.

The Oscar winner said that her kids with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, daughter Ava, 15, and her son Deacon, 11, are mortified by her.

"It's gotten worse," she said during a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." "My 11-year-old has gotten so embarrassed of me, he said to me, we were driving in the car and I had my coffee cup there, and he said, 'The lipstick on your coffee cup is so embarrassing!"

Witherspoon, 38, whose movie "Wild" hits theaters today, is able to laugh it off.

"I was like, 'Well, get over it kid, because I have a lot of lipstick!" she said.

Luckily, one of her children is still happy to be seen in public with her. Witherspoon's 2-year-old son Tennessee, whose father is her second husband, Jim Toth, is even game to take photos with his famous mom. And, of course, Witherspoon said that Toth is always proud to have her on his arm too.

"It means everything to me that he's always just telling me how great I am and how much loves what I do," she revealed. "I feel very blessed."
