Ryan Phillippe and Jake Gyllenhaal each are speaking out on what life is like after Reese
Reese Witherspoon sure knows how to have an impact on a man. Recently, two of her exes (and former co-stars at one point) have spoken out in interviews about what their lives are like post-Reese. 6 Celebrity Couples Who Work(ed) Together
Ryan Phillippe said to Howard Stern on his radio show that "it's gotten to a place where we're great friends and great co-parents." So good, in fact, that he just can't understand why the rest of the world isn't over the drama surrounding his divorce.
"I'm tired of getting sh*t on. I don't feel like I deserve it," he told the shockjock. "Things happen! How many people have you broken up with over your life?"
OK, ummm. First, we're not sure that he got as bad of a public flogging as he thinks, especially considering that he left his wife and children and started dating a co-star almost immediately after word of his split hits newsstands. Second, when his defense for leaving a family is to ask about how many people someone has broken up with, it makes it seem like he doesn't understand the difference between a marriage and a middle-school couple. In fact, we think that Ryan talking about his romantic relationships with Howard Stern at all is pretty despicable in itself.
Jake appears to have lost some confidence after the breakup. He'd once said that the most important thing for a man to do is to find the right woman. He's now changed his stance, somewhat. "Who am I to say what the most important thing in life is? I really don't know. Particularly right now in my life."Jake Has Engagement Ring Under Tree For Reese
Wow. We're pretty impressed. With a former husband singing her praises and an exboyfriend who feels the need to reexamine his whole philosophy on love, it's obvious that being in a relationship with Reese Witherspoon is a life-changing event.
