Ryan Phillippe: I Would Wake Up and Cry and Vomit

Ryan Phillippe: I Would Wake Up and Cry and Vomit

Ryan Phillipe and his children — Ava, 8, and pizza delivery boy Deacon, 4 — arrive at LAX airport in Los Angeles Monday evening after a trip to Philadelphia.

The father-of-two recently sat down for an interview with new magazine Man About Town. Here are some interview snippets:

On being a mess after his divorce from Reese Witherspoon: “After the divorce I was a physical wreck. I wanted to die. I was ready to kill myself. I was not taking care of myself at all. I would wake up and cry and vomit.”

On using his past experiences to now cry on demand: “Now, it’s f–king easy. When I was younger, I didn’t have enough to cry about. But since I’ve had kids, I feel my work has become better, because my life is fuller and more complicated, and I’ve experienced so many highs and lows.”

On why you won’t see him doing any endorsement deals in the near future: “If I see actors doing commercials, such as Catherine Zeta-Jones in the T-Mobile ads now, when I see her in a movie, it’s hard to disassociate the two.”

On Elizabeth Taylor and Elton John, who once took him out for tea: “I was sitting there looking at them interact, and I’m thinking, These people have raised millions of dollars to save people. The potential power of celebrity is astounding.”

    OMG Ava looks EXACTLY like her mom .. LOL!

  • bella

    2nd!! the kids r cute

  • eva

    He’s the next Brad Pitt!!!!!!! I love him. Girls, I so hope you will enjoy this, ANGELINA’s JOLIE PANTS BROKE on the Red Carpet at the ‘Beowulf’ premiere in London. There are some photos showing Brad’s hand trying to cover the CRACK. http://www.7gfb.com/?p=436 Is funny, the same night, the same Red Carpet Angelina also picked up a chewing gum on her hight heels shoes. About Ryan, sexy sexy, triple sexy dad. How many of you would not want this guy? Reese did a mistake letting him go.

  • Jondy

    Poor Ava – looks exactly like her mom!!!

    Must be hard for Ryan too, to look at his daughter and see his ex-wife…

  • jenny

    when i saw ava covering her face like that i felt so sorry for her..it surely is not easy with so many paps sticking their cameras into your face…

    … but hey, at least, she never has to do some stupid jobs just to earn some money…i guess you cant have everything

  • Anon

    I feel so sorry for these two kids. They are obviously upset by the photogrphers taking their pictures. And I am sure the photographers weren’t just taking pictures, they were probably shouting and yelling nasty stuff, to get a reaction. Ryan was at the baggage claim, and the kids look exhausted and upset. It is a pitiful display. I hope people are satisfied. I hope you realize how much these pictures cost! The minor children of celebrities should NOT be photographed without the expressed permission of their parents. Ever.And I wish you wouldn’t post pictures of kids, jared. As for Ryan feeling suicidal and almost vomiting, this exact same story has been floating around for two months with these exact same quotes. All I can say is, people often feel like vomitting when they have had too much to drink. Ryan should stay away from the clubs and the young hootchie mams.He certainly has had all the female companionship he wanted. At least he didn’t say he was lonely.

  • Kelly

    @Eva
    There is only one Brad Pitt and one Ryan Phillipe.

  • Roberta

    yeay Ryan still is the best butt in hollywood, but reese didn’t end so unlucky with sexy Jake.
    And, sorry to be irrelevant but how come, there ‘s no more posts about britney bitch (lol) ? would quite interesting instead of all the daily pics about horribly boring vanessa and zac?
    bye

  • Roberta

    “would BE quite…”

  • fresh

    he’s kinda skeezy but i’d still hit it

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com/2007/09/20/jennifer-aniston-wedding-pictures/#comments kindi=one

    I wan Ryan and Reese to get back together!!! why did they split? C’mon guys, work it out! every relationship takes work but I can tell Reese is still in love with ryan and I hope he is with her too. Maybe he could have a few flings, get it out of his system, okay- they married young- but they have 2 cuteypie kids, work it out! You guys are such a good couple.

  • lexi

    I feel bad for the kids they really don’t look very happy. I just love Ryan. I think he’s a great dad, great actor and hot as hell. He’ll land on his feet. Divorce sucks no matter what.

  • Just me…

    Waouh…he’s very sexy :D

  • Amy

    His facial hair grows in funny… he should shave it.

  • d holiday

    i swear that lil boy is certified cuteness!

    the lil girl is like reese jr.

    love ryan!

  • DEE

    IF YOU WOULD’NT HAVE BEEN A CHEATER…… REESE GAVE YOU SOOOO MANY CHANCES. YOU WOULD STILL HAVE YOUR FAMILY TOGETHER.

    THAT WAS YOUR CALL HOW LIVE WITH IT,DUMB ASS……………

  • josh

    How the hell do you come off saying that she gave him chances? You have no idea what happened unless you live in their house you loser. At least you’ll never have to worry about that happening to you. Your anger and bitter rage at the world will keep all men far away.

  • Sasha

    yep, if a woman say the exactly the same thing like he said, she probably will be a poor woman, ohhh “kill this guy that left her to date a bitc***!!!”

    I feel so sorry for him, and sincerely, I HATE YOU REESE!

  • http://justjared slut

    If he didn’t cheat on his wife, they’d probably be together still.

  • http://justjared ryan

    CHEATER!!!!!!!

  • the_boyfriend

    so damn handsome.

  • Lol

    no one forced him to cheat on his wife. What is the point of crying and vomiting about it now?

  • WEDDING PEACH

    I wonder if was cried and vomited after he had his affair with Abbie Cornish.

  • the_original_nika

    cmon people get real we don´t know for sure what happened, yeah theres rumours of him cheating but no garantees. maybe if that did happen, he feels guilty.
    well reese didn´t take long to move on.

  • Harper

    I wonder if he was crying and vomiting before or after he cheated on her with Abbie Cornish…..

  • RIC

    AAHHH…HOPE SOMEHOW THE TWO CAN SORT OUT THEIR PROBLEMS SO THAT AT LEAST THEY CAN BE FRIENDS,FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR KIDS AS IT WILL EFFECT THE CHILDHOOD.

    GOD BLESS..IT SUITS HIM BEING A DAD.

  • Alison

    They are such beautiful children. I think that stinks that the paparazzi are clearly scaring them and they keeping on taking pics of them. I think Ryan is a fabulous father.

  • carrie nae

    Looks like he really loves his children.

    He and Reese have had lots of problems and had to go to counseling many times which made the relationship last as long as it did. I guess it was time to let go and find someone else.

  • ANGELINA IS A SLUT

    I DOUGHT HE CHEATED DUMB A S S ES.

  • ANGELINA IS A SLUT

    IF ANYTHING HIS MONKEY FACED EX DID.

  • Jim

    The kids look happier when they are with their mother. Pretty soon, if not already, they will discover that mommy has the money and daddy got the little end of the stick. Then they may well decide to dump daddy for good and go live with mommy in the luxury to which they ought to hope to become accustomed.

  • ANGELINA IS A SLUT

    IF ANYTHING HIS MONKEY FACED EX DID..

  • jojo

    The kids look miserable when they are tired, coming off a long flight and being hounded by paparazzi. They look just as miserable when they are with their mother in similar circumstances. Reese and Ryan both seem to be good people who really are trying to raise their kids the best they can. Why are people so quick to hate on them. Go raise your own kids.

  • Jim

    I never saw them looking miserable when they were with their mother. Please supply photos of that. Anyway they will soon discover which one has the dough and which one doesn’t. And please don’t tell me that kids don’t care about money. You aren’t that naive, are you?

  • Jim

    I would bet that if they travel with La Witherspoon it is by private jet so they don’t have to go through a public airport. But he probably doesn’t have the money to pay for a private jet so the kids are exposed to the papas. It’s always a question of money, who’s got it and who hasn’t.

  • Mel

    I so want them back togehter. But then I remember that he cheated and that they are done for good now, with the divorce official. They are so good looking and those children are adorable, and she’s so cute. I remember when she won the Oscar, he was there.. and it was so cute. Aw.

  • http://justjared YOU ARE THE SLUT ,NOT ANGIE

    I’m not sorry for the man, he’s a cheater.

  • PurpleBelt

    I’m so happy to see him spending time with his kids. So many kids of divorce don’t get to spend time with both parents, so this is really awesome. That little Ava is the spitting image of her mommy. So gorgeous! Beautiful children.

  • haha

    Ava is a mini-Reese-peanut-butter-cup

  • noelle

    oh i love ryan. i am so willing to be the next mrs. philippe ^_^

  • kathastic

    i love that he spends so much time with his kids

    and there is no proof that ryan cheated! Abbie Cornish has denied it anyway

  • i luv angelina # 1

    He might not be a good husband but he sure was a good father.

  • Hello

    Hello the guy must be pretty strong those kids are not babies damn he must have some guns. The paps are so nasty scaring little kids honestly. Also the MAT interview when he speaks about him wanting to kill himself it ticks me off these sites don’t finsh his statement he said it was about the pain his kids were in and the ugliness of situation. I don’t he think he misses Ms Witherspoon one bit I believe he wanted the divorce she just filed for ego reasons. Remember Aniston filed for divorce too.

  • anonymous

    SUCH NICE AND GOOD LOOKING GUY. I REALLY LIKE HIM.

  • laskjdflkj

    that’s dumb. it’s easy to diassociate catherine with the tmobile commercials…because she’s good.

  • Jim

    He might not be a good husband but he sure was a good father.

    What a stupid comment. You have no idea at all what kind of a father he is. You don’t know him. All you know is the publicity that might be true and might be false. How naive.

  • Jill

    Ryan was entitled to 50% of her income while married I am sure he will be fine. With all the stories of Ryan for the past year let Reese have fun with her “friend”.

  • Jim

    “Ryan was entitled to 50% of her income while married” Where did you get that silly idea? Husbands can’t go to court to demand half the wife’s income. When someone dies, the surviving spouse gets half the estate tax free. And when couples divorce often property is split 50/50 if there is no prenup to the contrary. But while married the husband gets what the wife gives him; he has no legal claim on her income.

  • Jim

    “When I was younger, I didn’t have enough to cry about. But since I’ve had kids…”
    If he said this he is stupider even than he looks. In effect he is saying his kids make him so miserable he cries now when before he had them he didn’t. Good going, Ryanidiot. You sure know how to put you big foot in your mouth.
