Ryan Phillippe: Men's Health May 2010 Cover -- Shirtless!

Ryan Phillippe shows off his washboard abs on the shirtless May 2010 cover of Men’s Health, on stands Tuesday. Here are some choice quotes from the 35-year-old actor:

On his divorce from actress Reese Witherspoon: “I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce. But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?”

On his breakout role at age 17 as a gay teen on the soap opera One Life to Live: “I would worry, ‘What will the people at school think?’ And they shunned me in a lot of ways. But it ended up being an incredible experience and such a time of growth for me.”

On working with Will Forte and Kristen Wiig on the sketch “MacGruber” : “I tend to internalize and analyze, but with them, there’s none of that. There was no edit, no judgment. I was just a really free atmosphere.”

On getting older: “I thought the most experience you had, the more certain you would be about life. But I’m finding the opposite, man. I’m more in wonder and confusion than I was in my 20s.”

FYI: Ryan (in 7 For All Mankind jeans on the cover) is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend!

  • whodunit?


  • caxposed

    About time boyfriend landed a damn cover! As always, he is looking mighty delicious!

  • Ronda

    Great Scott! Who knew he was working with all of that?!?!? He looks absolutely delicious;)

  • Jimmy

    Of course you’re confused about life, you’re a dumb doofus. Why the Egyptian headgear? Looking for Cleopatra? You look about 21 years old. How long ago were you “17″?

  • pickles

    He keeps talking about the same stuff over and over and he is always whining and cmoplaining abut something, like he has a persecution complex. Ryan is boring. Sorry. I don’t care what kind of body he has if he is turning me off at the brain level.

  • ren


  • Rocky

    DAMN!! DAMN! AND DAMN!! That’s all I have to say other than, “where’s the honey?”

  • sunshine

    Oh please, you people are nuts. This guy is on Men’s Health because he’s a warning about the dangers of STDs when you fu-k around with everything that moves. He couldn’t even keep from cheating on the woman he cheated on his wife with. He’s also a smoker, so between that and the STDs from waving his weanie at everything with a vag, how is he a poster boy for Men’s Health?

  • sunshine

    @pickles: You’re right, he’s definitely a whiny bittch. He doesn’t take responsibility for himself. Poor Decon.

  • anon

    Hypocritical on the part of Mens Health If he’s one of MANY closet Hollywood smokers he better enjoy the body and health he has while he can. Smoking to stay thin is like making a deal with the devil…seems great at the time but you will eventually pay with your life (earlier than later). Patrick Swayze, and Paul Newman were both longtime smokers and now Dennis Hopper is the latest in a long line before him and to come to pay the price. Not to the mention all the extra cosmetic surgery you have to start getting to keep on top of what it does to your looks (no hiding the voice though). Hollywood is full of celebs who front like live a healthy life to maintain thier looks but are actually closet smokers, drug and or alcohol addicts etc.

  • Jessie

    No, he’s not relevant anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised if he hasn’t come on here and posted some of these comments himself. What a douche.

  • reese

    If he is still sad about his divorce, he should get counseling.
    All these people who say he’s so hot and you want him, tell me. How would you like a boyfriend who smoked like a chimney, drank till he puked,,lied and cheated on you, got jealous of everything tiny thing you did that was successful, and was always complaining and whining and talking about you to other people. BTW. How does he rate a magazine cover? What’s he doing these days? LOL!

  • Wow

    Too bad he is so short, he is what like 5’7, that with no talent or substance. But other than him being short ,he is good looking!!!

  • Wow

    Too bad he is so short, he is what like 5’7, that with no talent or substance. But other than him being short ,he is good looking!!!

  • kookabear

    does he come with dipping sauce ? cause he is deelllish

  • ME

    He is 5’9. He has always been honest and candid in interviews regarding his private life. His statement about being sad about divorce and it is complicated it is that way for most especially when kids are involved. There is nothing whiney about this interview people need to stop attacking every little thing. He is gorgeous.

  • Adrienne

    No talent or substance? You have to be kidding me. Ryan is one of the most understated actors in Hollywood today, and for anyone that has actually witnessed some of his work, it is clear to see his ability as an actor. Do not judge a book by its cover.

  • gaeljet

    lacks of ams and upper chest, other thant that pretty esthtic and lean, nice face, just the nose a little less good, and pretty short but that s ok

  • Pattycake

    @gaeljet: This ain’t a statue or a painting. This is live human flesh, and what flesh too. (fans self) My, my, my.
    I sometimes wince reading or listening to Ryan’s interviews. He is just so candid. But that takes integrity which I admire. As for talent, people have short memories. Even in films such as Stop-Loss which were financial flops, he shines.

  • gaeljet

    well he works out like a lot of celebrities or myself, anyways, for my part i do it for some reasons among which the fact that i can scuplt my body

  • jwow

    at WOW 5’7 is short…and your putting him down because of his height..
    well better to be shorter and better looking than a fat ugly big pig like yourself. uselesss prick…..

  • jeff

    Is it obvious to everyone that the same pathetic person posts 90% of the negative comments about him here? They all say the same things. Someone is bitter. LOL

  • Khristi

    He’s just beautiful…

  • Adriana

    So hott! I’ve had a crush on him since Cruel Intentions. What happened to him? LOL.

  • Pattycake

    @reese: Wow! Guess we know what YOUR ex is like. LOL

  • whatever

    This guy is VERY good looking…get over it…women need brainless eye-candy too, not just men!

  • whatever

    He is VERY good looking… get over it…women need brainless eye-candy too, not just men!

  • Amber-louise

    He’s lookin good!

  • anna

    His only claim to fame now is being Reese’s ex. He used to have such potential.

  • Anon2

    I’ve been a fan of both Reese and Ryan for years, but whenever I re-read their early interviews, I’m struck by how brutally honest Ryan has always been while Reese only tells ultra-positive stories about herself.

  • Nacho

    Ohhhh i wanna be like him so bad!!!!!! hahahaha but i’m so lazy! he’s so perfect. I like him and i hate him for that! :P
