Ryan Phillipe carries his kids Ava and Deacon out of LAX trying to shield them from the paparazzi. Ryan recently sat down for an interview with new magazine Man About Town and talked about his tough divorce with Reese Witherspoon:

On being a mess after his divorce from Reese Witherspoon: “After the divorce I was a physical wreck. I wanted to die. I was ready to kill myself. I was not taking care of myself at all. I would wake up and cry and vomit.”

On using his past experiences to now cry on demand: “Now, it’s f–king easy. When I was younger, I didn’t have enough to cry about. But since I’ve had kids, I feel my work has become better, because my life is fuller and more complicated, and I’ve experienced so many highs and lows.”

On why you won’t see him doing any endorsement deals in the near future: “If I see actors doing commercials, such as Catherine Zeta-Jones in the T-Mobile ads now. When I see her in a movie it’s hard to disassociate the two.”

On Elizabeth Taylor and Elton John, who once took him out for tea: “I was sitting there looking at them interact, and I’m thinking, These people have raised millions of dollars to save people. The potential power of celebrity is astounding.”


Although he probably did cheat on Reese and I really like Reese with Jake Gyllenhaal, I feel bad for Ryan. He seems like such a great dad, and those kids are so cute I could eat them!
