Phillippe & Degeneres Hug It Out

Phillippe & Degeneres Hug It Out

If you haven’t checked out this interview yet, be sure to watch Ryan Phillippe on The Ellen DeGeneres Show from Friday. He addresses his split from Reese Witherspoon and his current inspiration, his 7-year-old daughter, Ava. Watch the video below!

Said Phillippe: “It’s devastating. But the bottom line is the focus is on the children and they’re doing amazingly well and that is really all that matters. As difficult as it is, my daughter has been the inspiration – she has, my 7 year old daughter is Ava yeah, she is beyond, in terms of like conscientiousness and maturity, and she has gotten me though this…I know it sounds pathetic, I’m a 32-year-old guy, but my 7-year-old daughter is getting me though the toughest time in my life, and that’s beautiful too.”

  • Capriciousdiva

    This guy is so sexy especially his deep voice


    F*ck him he is just another actor walking over the best thing has ever happened to him, maybe he thinks people going to give a $hit about him once he’s single ,
    Anyway he doesn’t deserve a great woman like Reese.
    And she definitely can do so much better

    maybe you should have thought about what you were doing when you were porking someone who isn’t ava’s mommy?

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    I think I know why he isn’t a bigger celebrity than he is. He’s some what of a boring interviewee.

    The way he talks is funny tho.

  • lexy

    Hotttt boy. Ellen seemed to be feelin his pain.

    Regardless of why you split, doing it in the public eye has to add an additional layer of suckage. Also just cuz you fall out of love with your wife doesn’t mean leaving your children becomes easier.

    I’m so sick of the OMG HE”S A CHEETA! REECE IS SO BETTER OFF NOW bullshit.

  • emily

    i agree. he does seem really borning when being interviewed. a total contrast from when you watch Reese’s Interviews. shes so funny, sweet, articulate, opinionated and interesting. she was always too good for him.

  • jodi

    I hate Reese’s “Little Girl from the South” schtick. She says the same things in every interview and I think the sweet bubbly thing is a total act. She used to be more opinionated/smart/articulate and then she seemed to develop this persona that is so put on I can’t believe people actually buy it. I used to be a fan but not so much anymore.

  • lester

    Agree with consensus. She can do better and will.

    He’s such a douche.

  • lester

    Uh, maybe she says the same things because she’s asked the same questions.

  • Kelly

    Maybe she’s just trying to matter…

  • emily

    shes always been bubbly, friendly, bright and funny. watch her older interviews. she hasnt changed, Ryan even said, they were complete opposites and so did reese. Ryan said Reese was always very happy and bright while he was a much darker person, and so he sort of relied on her, when he’d get into his really dark periods to pull him out, and that she was a lot more of a people person and more friendly, so he relied on her at events/premieres too. developed a persona? oh please, some women can actually be, sweet, intelligent and funny and do well in the business because they are determined and dont take crap.

  • Lexy

    I hope they both find happiness. I hate the team shit. If you like her you hate him and vice versa. So stupid.

  • geniass

    When did he start sounding so rough?

  • Laila

    I admire Ryan for being so honest in this interview. You can tell he got choked up when talking about his daughter. He seems like a really great father. He has put up with lot from the tabloids – the unproven accusations that he had an affair. It is so obvious from his public conduct as well as Reese’s that it is not true. They both attended Ava’a school play together recently and are handling themselves very well. It is too bad that people don’t have the ability to critically think and believe everything they read.

  • WTF

    “I’m so sick of the OMG HE”S A CHEETA! REECE IS SO BETTER OFF NOW bullshit”

    I agree. I like him and he’s a great actor. He’ll get his Oscar.

  • Team Reese

    The day that man wins an oscar is the day the oscars officially stop being a judge of talent.

  • Ava

    He is a good looking man, but that’s all he has going for him. He is a boring/average actor. Seems like a nice guy though.

  • Sawyer

    Dude needs to stop trying to make people feel sorry for him. He’s the only one of the two talking about the divorce. It’s not necessary. Keep your mouth shut. All his weeping makes me think he’s trying to get attention, get people to feel sorry for him. Probably cuz he did **** up.

    And does it seem like he feigns the deep voice?

  • JoRel

    the funniest thing about this is that everyone thinks that he cheated. We really don’t know who is at fault if anyone. I just wanna say that no matter what divorce is hard and i hope they get through it at least for the kids.

  • oooh


  • work, work

    Yeah I watched this interview, cause of him! ;) He does seem like a really good dad. I just don’t understand why people blame him for the break-up. Where’ the proof that he cheated, anyway? Reese seemed cold toward him. Not loving at all.

  • Katie

    Gosh, all I can hear when he speaks, is Sylvester Stallone. I swear they sound exactly alike.

  • Lohan Roberto

    I love Ryan Phillippe!!!!

  • Jorge

    I think it’s very idiotic and arrogant of people to blame either Ryan or Reese. It is their lives, leave them the fuck alone!

    Do you know for a fact Ryan cheated? No.

    Do you know for a fact Reese was a cold fish? No.

    Can Reese do better? Who the hell cares?

    And the crazies need to stop bashing Ryan. What did he ever do to you? Knock your ice cream cone out of your hand?

  • peppy

    Wasnt it three years ago that Reese was playing Legally Blonde? Look at JHud! Ryan could so win a Oscar if he applied himself. He already had a head start staring in Crash.

  • anon

    If he applied himself? LOL. The only way Ryan will get an Oscar is if he steals Reese’s.

    And he needs to STFU. This pity party stuff is pathetic.
