Ryan Phillippe's Dreams Come True

Ryan Phillippe's Dreams Come True

Ryan Phillippe was on The Early Show this morning talking about his upcoming film Flag of Our Fathers (out today). Here are choice quotes from the interview:

  • On his dreams coming true: “This was a dream for me to be able to do a film with that sort of content and these people. My grandfather was my hero. He won a Bronze Star in Germany. He would tell me stories, periodically, usually about mechanical things, tanks and guns, not about death and his friends dying next to him.”
  • On working with director Clint Eastwood: “You hear the stories and the mythology, and it’s all true. The guy is incredible. He’s an amazing man. Look at him, 76 years old. He climbed the place we shot Suribachi. They had a helicopter that could have taken him up. The man is out there with two bags over his shoulders at 6 in the morning climbing this mountain. He’s something else.”
  • On Oscar night (“Crash” won Best Picture, wife Reese Witherspoon won Best Actress “Walk The Line”): “So surreal. I have little recollection of that night because of how overwhelmed I was in a sensory manner. It’s almost dream-like.”
  • On working on another war-related movie (Untitled Kimberly Peirce Project): “The men and women who make that sacrifice and are willing to give up their lives in a lot of cases are heroes to me.”

More pictures of Ryan, 32, from the FOOF press conference at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills earlier this month!

    Somehow I just can’t stand this guy. I also think, his wife deserves better. And no, i’m neither a lesbian nor a man.

  • Erin

    He is hot. He needs to smile more though.

  • kmillz

    How did reese get with that….I think its some kind of trend for hot guys to have unattractive women on their arm.

  • anon

    Reese is a lot more talented than him. She’s pretty and successful and he’s jealous of her. What a support. I’d rather have a good than a hot husband.

  • Kini

    Can you say HOT!!!

  • WTF

    Anon: WTF are you smoking?

  • D.

    He’s too pretty for me to look at!

  • AddictedtoBAMZs

    Ryan, I love ya. Since way back. I love your scowl, I love your voice, the whole package. YOu have that thing known as Magnetic Appeal. I always see your movies, and wish you the best. But…I am uncomfortable about rumors. Please be faithful to your wife and family! I think your star is about to rise, and you will be vulnerable. Don’t do it. Don’t be weak. Please keep your marriage together and never leave your wonderful children and wife.

  • AddictedtoBAMZs

    Jared…Phillippe, not Phillppe in the title.

  • Just Jared

    Haha, thanks AddictedtoBAMZs!!!! Great catch.

  • Kimberlee

    What the eff are you guys talking about? She is a prude, snooty biotch and is definitely the problem. Not him!

  • Lori

    I don’t understand you people. How can you criticize when you don’t know either one of them. You act like you know them personally. You don’t know them. You don’t know anything about their life. Rumors are what they are……Rumors. You don’t know that she is a “prude, snooty biotch and is definitely the problem” or that he cheats. You can’t believe everything you read in a “TABLOID”.

  • peyton

    I cannot belive you people slaming him like that! It proves you only like Ryan when he’s with his talentless, bithcy, and self-centered wife. Ryan is an amazing actor who no one has ever noticed before all because miss perfect steals the limelight. And you should be ashamed for saying Reese deserves better — Ryan is the one who most definately deserves better than a terrible woman like Reese.

  • Kristina

    I have never really liked him but he is hot, you gotta give him that but his voice (that accent) annoys the hell outta me.

  • enna

    hahaha. omg what a load of loonies around here. wtf. ryan and reese are together, whether people like it or not. reese is more sucsessful right now, than ryan, like it or not. whos more talented is personal preference. if you dont like ryan why come into this thread? and if you dont like his wife-get a life-she hasnt done anything wrong, maybe people are just jealous she has a hottie to cuddle up to every night, and has kept him for nearly 10 years now. im sure he’d stay with reese, if she was a ‘talentless, bithcy, and self-centered wife’. yeah right. at least THIS couple can actually maintain a relationship, as hard as it is to swallow for some around here.

  • ll

    enna you are so right.

    truth is no one here knows what they are really like so you can either assume the best or assume the worst

  • bugsy

    for you conflicted peeps out there: ain’t nothing wrong with thinkin both Reese and Ryan are hot, and they are! thanx for the pix jared!

  • jordie

    I saw FOOF last night and it is an incredibly moving film with an important message. Everyone should see this film. Ryan is beautiful. He and Reese are a great couple!

  • Samantha

    Why isn’t this article listed on the Ryan Phillippe category? Along with many others published previously? The last thing listed there is “The proud and the pretty” and that’s quite an old article. Resolve that Jared.

  • luisa

    Does he ever smile? He’s such an unpleasant, pouty bitch. Atleast his crotch was nice to look at in 54.

  • flora

    He is smiling in the 3th and 4th picture! He is looking great and I can’t wait to see that movie :)
    thanks jared!

  • J

    He looks great!! :0))
    And in spite of everything the papers said the last several months, he and Reese are separating….
    By the way, that ‘Untitled Kimberley Pierce Project’…. I thought it was called “Stop-Loss”…. ;0)
