Ryan's Little Ava Helps Him Through Hard Times

Ryan's Little Ava Helps Him Through Hard Times

Ryan and Reese seem to be handling their divorce in a classy way. No one is dragging the other through the dirt for the sake of those adorable kids. Even if we are sad that they split (and the supposed reason why), Ryan is still getting cute points. Most recently he appeared on Ellen to promote Breach and ended up talking about the woman who is helping him deal with the divorce and who inspires him most, his daughter. Here's highlights:

"It's devastating," Phillippe tells DeGeneres, "but the bottom line is the focus is on the children, and they're doing amazingly well and that's really all that matters."

"Going through something like this, as difficult as it is, my daughter has been the inspiration – my 7-year-old daughter Ava," Phillippe said.

The little girl is beyond her years in "conscientiousness and maturity," he says. "I know it sounds pathetic – I'm a 32-year-old guy, but my 7-year-old daughter is getting me through the toughest time in my life, and that's beautiful too."

Ugh. So sad! It makes you almost forget all the rumors about his infidelities - almost.

Aww that is too sweet. None of us were in that marriage, so we shouldn't judge him based on what we think happened.

I have no clue why people cheat, but it's just so wrong. I'd rather someone told me, " Hey, I want to start seeing other people" than get cheated on. But some guys want to have their cake and eat it too. My ex cried like a baby, and had a nervous breakdown when I broke up with him for cheating, so I took him back, and he did it again! It was so crazy. I wish they would do some serious studies as to why guys like Jude Law, Kobe Bryant and my ex...who seem to be sooo in love with you...turn around and cheat. It boggles my mind! LOL

teddybear, I don't really agree with your point of view there... If it was acceptable to cheat in our society, we wouldn't make such a big deal about it when it happens. There are biological reasons for men to cheat, that's why you've all heard what's referred to as the seven year itch. Anthropologists claim it's because for our ancestors (we're talking millions of years ago ancestors) that is how long it took to rear a child with a woman until that child could hold his own. However, we as a society have chosen, or evolved, (pick your word) to be monogamous. We have chosen/evolved to end our mating selection process with marriage and to stay with that mate until we die. That is why it's the man's fault. HE has entered into a contract with his mate to be faithful and supportive of her and only her. When HE cheats, even if he is tempted, HE is the one who is breaking that contract. And so, he is the one who is righfully scorned. He SHOULD wear a Scarlet A, so that other women can be forewarned, but our society doesn't work like that. Now when fellow married people cheat (both parties being married), I think that it is both of their faults. So - there's more than my two cents on the subject.

~Men lower your self esteem and your I.Q.~ I know alot of men who cheat just cause they can. They can be perfectly happy with their partner and still cheat. We, as society has made it exceptable for men to cheat and to blame the other woman instead of putting the responsiblity on him. They have really no repercussions (spelling?) so why not?

All you can do is wish this family well. We're all human and we all make mistakes. That doesn't make it right or count as an excuse but nothing gets solved by getting hung up on the lows. At the end of the day, one has to carry on.

Imabeliever, no one should remain in an unhappy marriage for the sake of the kids, there's no arguing that. However, cheating on your spouse...even if you've grown apart...is never acceptable. Being cheated on is an indignity no one should suffer. I tend to believe he did cheat. The rumors have been swirling about it forever. Still, they made a wise choice in ending the marriage if they were both so miserable in it. And I remember reading they tried marriage counseling, so they did try to make things work. Anyway, I don't like him. He just seems kind of smug and cold.

He's certainly on a campaign to tell anyone who will listen how difficult his divorce is for him - after being the one who brought it on. yawn...... he bores me.

No it doesn't. He has a new movie out. He's an actor. He will say all the right words. Can't wait to see Reese move on to something way better.

Cute...but I agree with flutterpie...should of thought of that before you cheated.

your right every man in the world should stay in a miserable marriage with someone he can't get along with for the sake of their children.. cause that is so much healthier and such a good example for children unhappy alienated parents sleeping in seperate rooms. And there are actual fairy tale lands with castles and fairies and unicorns where a smiling sun sets as all sing happily ever after together forever.
