Reese and Ryan Split???

Say it isn't so. Can one of our favorite Hollywood couples have really split? We know there were rumors that they had issues and they didn't look so lovey dovey at the Flags of Our Fathers premiere but we just don't want to believe that this is true. TMZ reports:

The couple's rep released a statement to TMZ Monday morning that says "We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time."

Sources tell TMZ Witherspoon has contacted celebrity divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman, who has represented Jennifer Aniston, Roseanne and Lisa Marie Presley.

No divorce papers have been filed yet so there is still some hope. We really want this couple to make it. We know how important family is to these two so let's hope for Deacon and Ava they can figure things out. Geez, and we were just saying what a family guy Ryan is. What a way to kick off the week.

Curly Sue, I so agree. Reese is overrated IMO, I don't care what Oscar she won. Ryan has a better eye for interesting work and that might not make him popular but I definitely respect him more. I think his career is going to do so much better once he's divorced. I can't wait to see what movie roles he chooses. Did Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Ruffalo really say that about her? She always seemed nice enough to me, but maybe she is this way because her movie role choice scream of wanting popularity and fame over being considered a good actress.

I'm not surprised at all. There were rumors for awhile, they were having problems. And like 90% of celebrities, end in divorce nowadays. No celebrity divorces surprise me anymore, I'm actually surprised Reese and Ryan lasted this long.

Why is that it had to be a villain and a victim in the story? Why cant a marriage just came to an end?

Hey sibyl, what's wrong with being controlling? :P I am, and I'm about to get married! Haha, I could *totally* see that as a reason for divorce in 10 yrs though. From what I see, she's a rather strict mom (which is such a relief in this day and age) and maybe her disciplinarian-ness makes her a boring wife!

This comes as no surprise at all, it is simple logic Oscar - Check America's Sweetheart Crown - Check Inflated Ego that comes with being America's sweetheart and Oscar winner - Check Divorce - Check Funny how as soon as these women are crowned America's sweetheart, they start believing the hype. Reese needs to chill out, so she makes 15million per movie and He doesn't, His movies are way better than hers. Saw legally blonde and it was a big waste of $2.50 (walmart was having a two for 5 dvd sales). I wanted to reach in and smack the pink out of her. Ryan on the other makes movies of substance. I doubt this is about his ego, more likely her over ambitiousness. I am definately on Team Ryan, you go boy, kiss that hot blonde like you've never kissed before. :)

yes, gotta say on Lainey gossip, everything she says seems to have some sort of truth to it,( I know that sounds silly, but it is true) and she ALWAYS comments that Reese is a TOTAL bia tch. She supposedly does not talk or make eye contact with the movie crew unless they are the the director, producer.ect.. I guess success got to her head, but she still is a great talent.

I am not surprised at all. You may recall that Mark Ruffalo and Joanquin Phoenix said that Reese was "not fun, too serious" and "difficult" while filming with her. She seems very controlling. Who wants to be married to that.
mar mar 10 years
well, I think they should split it all down the middle. I had heard her once say that when one works on a project, the other is with the kids. I think any money made in that marriage will most likely be split down the middle. she will still keep her oscar, however!
sibyl2004 sibyl2004 10 years
Not surprised at all. Not sure why everyone thinks that Reese is so sweet. Mark Ruffalo and Joaquin Phoenix describes her as "not fun" and "difficult" respectively and i gather she is very controlling. who wants to be married to that?

I know that T.I. (rapper/actor) will not let his girlfriend pursue her music career (she was in a well-known girl group in the 90s, Xscape)... They literally broke up b.cuz of her wanting to pursue her career...and they got back together b.cuz she gave in to his demands. Its not right but some men just CANNOT have their woman be too d@mn fabulous.

D@mn u Hollywood!!! I can't say I'm surprised that they are seperated...but I am sad to hear this. However, its not just in Hollywood that egos are everything. I think its a well-known fact that men period have egos...and a man HAS to always feel like he is the man. You know that he is in control, he wears the pants, the head of the household, the breadwinner...and not Mr. Mom or in this case Mr. Witherspoon. I know there are some exceptions where alot of women are the breadwinners of the family and the relationships work out just fine... However, in Ryan's case where it is constantly thrown in your face day after day and people encourage u to move the hell outta the way so they can take your beautiful, perfect, Oscar awarding-winning wife's picture...its got to hurt. Especially since they started out in this industry together... I'm not saying anything is wrong with her being FAB but...I can understand how this could have been eating away at him for sometime.
