The oldest child of The Morning Show star and her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, took to Instagram on Wednesday with an unexpected photo of herself.
In the image, Ava was sitting in a bath with makeup running down her face and a rip in her pantyhose.

She looked forlorn and the messy, Harley Quinn style get-up, along with her caption had some fans concerned. Ava captioned the post: "Recreating a feeling."
Her photo was met with applause from some who recognized the artistic beauty of the photograph, but others couldn't get over their worry that she was feeling down-in-the-dumps.
"Ava are you ok?" one asked, while a second commented: "You good?" and a third said: "I think a lot of people have been feeling this way lately, sometimes a picture really does speak a thousand words."
Ava said the photo reflected her mood
Many more wanted to know what was going on and why she was feeling low and more thanked her for being candid about her mood.
Ava recently made another bold statement via Instagram when she answered questions about sexuality.
When asked by a fan: "Do you like boys or girls?" Ava replied: "I'm attracted to... people! (Gender is whatever)."
Reese and her daughter Ava are very close
Ava - who was most recently dating Owen Mahoney, a fellow student at UC Berkeley - was also asked if she thinks her life would be different if her parents weren't celebrities.
"Yes. Very," she admitted. "That said though, I wouldn’t change a thing. The good and the not so good all made me who I am and gave me so many amazing opportunities. And my parents get to do what they love which is super cool."
