Ryan Phillippe Talks About Breakups From Reese Witherspoon and Abbie Cornish 2010-04-12 15:30:00

Ryan Phillippe Says He's Tired of "Getting S*** on" and Doesn't Deserve Bad Press — Sympathetic or Pathetic?

Ryan Phillippe called into Howard Stern's radio show this morning where talk turned to the newly single actor's love life. He basically called out Abbie Cornish for trying to spin their recent split to make it sound like it was her doing and also said that he's sick of all the bad press he gets during breakups. Ryan's had a rough romantic reputation since his divorce from Reese Witherspoon, but he thinks he's being treated too harshly. He said:

On breakups: "I have a new rule: not to date anyone who has a publicist . . . Who announces a breakup? I don't understand that! . . . I've been dumped on in the press for relationship stuff since Reese and I divorced. I'm tired of getting s*** on. I don't feel like I deserve it. Things happen! How many people have you broken up with over your life?"

On Reese: "It's gotten to a place where we're great friends and great co-parents . . . After I had my breakup, she called, and after she did, I called . . . I trust her to make the right decisions around our children. I hope she feels the same way . . . If the kids care about mom dad, and if that's consistent and they feel protected that way, they don't they don't really care so much about who the parent is dating. They just don't."

So what do you think about Ryan's quotes — are you sympathetic about what he's going through or think it's a little pathetic for him to be talking about Reese and Abbie?

LOL at the women on here who are madder at this guy then his own ex-wife. Time to move on. If you HEARD him on Stern you can hear he is laughing when he says he is sick of taking shit. At first he tries to answer seriously like "well it's a problem since blah blah blah" and then he laughed and said yeah not gonna lie I'm sick of the shit but what are you gonna do.

hmmm....i agree, he has gotten a TON of sh*t ever since his divorce. but what does he expect after supposedly cheating on "america's sweetheart of the moment"?? say what you want about reese now, but at the time...she was on top! i am glad he only had good things to say about her and their current relationship though. people care more about ryan/reese than what happened w/ ryan/abbie. his career definitely doesn't over-power his personal life....

Poor Ryan, he should have used a condom and avoid marrying Reese Phony B!tch Witherspoon.

I actually like Ryan. I do think he has been talked about negatively way too much. If he cheated on Reese then yes that sucks but its none of my business. He seems like a good father and I actually like some of his movies.

I do agree with him that he's been getting the flack ever since the divorce with Witherspoon. Yet no one is b!tch!ng about the ex-wife dating left and right. The man has definitely been burnt at the stake many times over, unnecessarily.

AmSee, that's your opinion. Personally I don't know of him because of his relationships. I was a fan of his for years before gossip sites and rag magazines took hold and, frankly, never even noticed to whom he was married. As for cheating on Reese, that's her business, not mine. Why do YOU care so much? But I guess the real question is why Reese fans can't let this go since she so clearly has.

Anything that happened should be between him and Reese

AMSee, it's not a matter of him thinking people care. It's that HE cares. I agree with the first comment. Ryan gives great interview because he's very honest and forthright. You get a glimpse of the person and not the persona.
