Ryan Phillippe is a Proud Papa

Ryan Phillippe is a Proud Papa

Ryan Phillippe couldn’t be any more proud of his two kids, Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4. Check out what he recently told Entertainment Tonight:

On being good dad Ryan: “Being a father is by far my greatest achievement and the most important thing about me. My mother had a day-care center in my house growing up. And I come from a big family on the East Coast. We grew up helping take care of and raise kids, so it’s very second nature to me.”

On explaining the paparazzi to his kids: “You try to make it seem as commonplace as you can. That’s sort of the approach you have to take with all of that stuff, with the press, with the paparazzi. You kinda just say, ‘Well, you know, Mommy and Daddy do this certain kind of job and it creates an interest in the public,’ and you minimize all of that stuff as much as you can.”

On being nearly enlisted as a soldier, like in his new movie Stop-Loss: “Out of high school, I didn’t have a ton of options because my grades weren’t the best and I don’t come from money,” he says. “When I graduated, it was around the time of the first Gulf War and I did go and sit in a recruitment office and I ended up getting the T-shirt and everything. And the guy who went in with me ended up going over and serving in the first Gulf War, but I went to New York to be an actor instead.”

Ryan‘s next movie Stop-Loss opens in theaters next Friday, March 28. The film also stars Abbie Cornish and Channing Tatum.

  • michelle

    is anyone going to the Stop Loss premiere in Los Angeles? Because if so I am jealous! And I also agree with everyone’s comments ;)

  • Alison

    I have been a long time fan of Ryan’s – I agree he is underrated. I always thought he was the better actor out of him and his ex-wife (though I like her too). He always comes across as very down to earth and a great Dad.

  • REality check

    what sad lil man

  • rebecca of sunnybrooke

    He looks very immature. I have to wonder if that didn’t help destroy his marriage. And now he has to advertise himself as a super father to counter Witherspoon’s prestige, etc. The kids will soon realize that Mommie’s got the dough and Poppy doesn’t. Then Poppy will sink and slink away and the kids will suck up to Mommie and her money. Money Mommie, money, they’ll cry..

  • What?

    This guy is cool and down to earth he seems normal and kind and adores his children. He seems very open and honest not contrived and manipulating to try to further a fake image WINK WINK!! i wonder who I could be referring to comment #13 it is sad that the mommy only has that doing for her in your opinion.
