Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon

The picture perfect couple have seperated. Their rep released this statement:

“We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time.”

Reese has already contacted a divorce lawyer although divorce papers have not been filed. Ryan Phillippe was too good for her anyway. He was in Way of the Gun. She was in Legally Blonde. You see how those two can never mix. I’ve always imagined Reese as the annoying one. With that voice and perky attitude. She seems like one of those girls that just keeps on talking and talking at you. Just shut up. I don’t care if you’re pregnant, here’s a coat hanger, fix it! Then again, maybe Ryan was jealous Reese went on to win an Oscar while he was left to wallow in supporting actor roles.

They didn’t look too happy in that picture taken at the Flags of Our Fathers premiere.

Sexy update: Lainey Gossip says Ryan Phillippe had an affair with some hot waitress in Vancouver during his last shoot. The waitress supposedly worked at Cactus Club Yaletown. Cactus makes it sound delicious. Yaletown makes it sound smart. A deadly combination if I may say so.
