Ryan Phillippe Opens Up About Co-Parenting with Ex-Wife Reese Witherspoon
Actor Ryan Phillippe says he and ex-wife Reese Witherspoon have found a great way to parent their children; Ava, 15, and Deacon, 10.
In an interview with HuffPost Live, the actor said, "It's a feeling-out process. I think we've gotten to a really great place… it's going well, and she's happy and remarried, and our kids are incredible. I'm proud of the way we've handled it and who our little people are.”
Phillippe added, "She was just in New York doing press for 'Gone Girl' and 'Wild,' and we got to meet up as a family and took a walk through Central Park with the kids, and it was funny -- we were reminiscing then because we shot a lot of 'Cruel Intentions' [there], so there we were with Ava and Deacon talking, and they were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds.”
Phillippe and Witherspoon divorced in 2006. Reese married Jim Toth in 2011. Phillippe has been dating girlfriend Paulina Slagter since 2012.
