You Aren't the Only One With a Complicated Crush on Sebastian Valmont
There's "bad boy," and then there's whatever you'd call Ryan Phillippe's character in Cruel Intentions. In honor of Phillippe's birthday on Saturday, we're taking a look back at one of Phillippe's most memorable roles from the '90s: Sebastian Valmont. He's handsome, of course, and funny in a totally twisted, dark sort of way, but not even the occasional cute moment with Annette (Reese Witherspoon) can distract from the fact that he's got his fair share of issues. If you're one of those fans who can't hear "Colorblind" by the Counting Crows without picturing Ryan at the top of an escalator, then relive your complicated feelings toward Sebastian with the emotional ups and downs — in GIF form.
