Ryan Phillippe: Reese & I Are Great Friends & Great Co-Parents

Since the much publicized 2006 split from ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe has kept a low profile. The Crash star quietly dated Abbie Cornish since around the time of the split, and has often been seen as the doting father, spending quality time with his two children Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6, with Witherspoon.

Now, after he and Cornish have ended their four-year relationship, Phillippe has revealed to Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show, that he feels he has been treated badly by the media concerning his split with Reese, reports US Weekly. The actor said, “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?”

He insists that the two get along well, “It’s gotten to a place where we’re great friends and great co-parents.” Concerning Witherspoon’s choice in a partner, he adds, “I trust her to make the right decisions around our children. I hope she feels the same way.”

Overall the actor is not concerned about how the parents dating will affect their children. The Cruel Intentions star says, “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.”

Phillippe, who has done very few films since his split with Witherspoon, has many projects lined up, including his latest MacGruber.

    It is great that they get along so well and take such good care of the kids. I hope that they can continue their great friendship and partnerships for as long as the children need them too.

    I just don’t understand. If they get along “great” together then why not try to “get along great” together as a family. It is what’s best for the children. Dating other people while your children are growing up is very unwise and unhealthy for them, and WILL eventually have an affect on them. Sometimes you’ve got to put your differences aside and try to make it work for the kids.
