Ryan Phillippe 'Still Friends' With Reese Witherspoon

Ryan Phillippe 'Still Friends' With Reese Witherspoon

Ryan Phillippe talks a little about his dating life on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (May 12).

When asked if he’s single, Ryan responded, “I’m dating. Sort of my emphasis right now is on the kids and career. I think it would be good for me to be single for a little bit. Yeah, find some focus, some personal focus.”

When asked if he’s still friends with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, Ryan said, “Yeah, we are. Things are great. It is so important to as divorced parents to keep that connection, It makes the kids feel better that the parents are interacting and with each other. ..We go to all the school events together and we’re there for each other and also in our line of work you have to be flexible because from one week to the next you don’t know where you’re going to have to be for a promotional tour or on location. We’ve done a really good job with that and our kids (Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6) are happy and healthy and doing awesome.”

    It is nice to see some divorced couples doing well.. especially when children are involved..

    I am not a fan of either but I think it is nice that they are getting along.

  • um

    so why no “the are getting back together” tab stories every freaking week sine the have been divorced?????????????????????

  • MB

    I’m glad they’re on good terms. They really do focus on family first.

  • alexa

    He’s adorable. How could you not want to hang out with him even if he was your EX husband.

  • pinkydoo

    He is so correct. I am going through a divorce right now and my soon to be ex and I are very close and are connected with our child. She feels so secure and it’s just better for everyone involved including the extended families. If only everyone could put their differences aside the world would be a better place. :-)

    I can’t wait to see Ryan on Ellen. I think he’s hot and a great daddy.

  • ann

    they were a lovely couple!

  • Pattycake

    In all of his interviews, Ryan always come through as a seriously considerate person, aware of what’s really important in life. And yet the gossip mill and/or its proponents still grind out that old saw that he was jealous of Reese’s success. Would a guy who resented his wife act so gallantly now? Anyway, good for you Ryan and Reese for putting your kids first.

  • shadowplay

    Hot and sexy daddy my @ss…..the guy can’t keep it in his pants! He couldn’t even stay faithful to Abby, who he cheated on Reese with! He propositioned 2 waitresses while in Vancouver before Abby left his @ss. He’s STD ridden.

  • juju-bee

    Why is he doing the rounds? All he’s got right now is a film with a bit part. He’s a no-talent.

  • google

    While I agree he’s untalented, his role in MacGruber is not a bit-part. Will Forte is the lead, but Kristen Wiig and him have rather substantial supporting parts.

  • mtc

    Don’t believe the total lies people post about his life. They are haters who make things up about what he does and where he goes and then post it on the internet and actually believe that people will think what they type is true. Grow up you don’t know a thing.

  • carlie

    hate to burst your bubble but he is known womanizer and cheater, several times. it’s not lies, it’s just hard for you to accept.

  • Pattycake

    @carlie: @shadowplay: OK, let’s say that Ryan is a cheat. Why aren’t the women coming forth like we see has become common? No one has done that, you say? And to recycle that old saw about Vancouver waitresses from 4 or 5 years ago just shows how desperate you are to not only hate Ryan but to have others do too. Pathetic.

  • hah

    Reese cheated on Ryan with Josh Lucas on “Sweet Home Alabama” and Abbie is the one who broke up Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams while making “Candy” and she did the same thing to Reese and Ryan on “Stop Loss”. Ryan may be a bum, but so are Reese and Abbie. Why do you assume only men cheat? In Hollywood, They all cheat. Remember, Women are smarter then men. They know how not to get caught. That’s the only difference.

  • Rachel

    WTF? Abbie didn’t break Heath Ledger relation with Michelle Williams

  • xiopio

    I love his comments. I am divorced and re-married. I have two kids with my ex-husband, and we have a great relationship. The kids appreciate this so much, when they see that Mommy and Daddy get along, etc. The ideal is for parents to stay together and raise their kids, but when that’s impossible the next best thing is to reseamble as much a traditional family as possible.

  • Pattycake

    @xiopio: Congrats. Your kids are lucky to have such mature parents.

  • caroline

    He was so cute talking about Ava cartwheeling everywhere and Deacon’s football games. I really think he’s a good guy. Not everyone is perfect and he’s not pretending to be a saint.

  • Reese Witherspoon stinks!

    Ryan is nice because they have kids.
    I’m sure he hates that phony b1tch like other people who know her well.

    She feels so secure and it’s just better for everyone involved including the extended families. If only everyone could put their differences aside the world would be a better place.
