Ryan's Rant

"I have a new rule: not to date anyone who has a publicist."

Does that mean us normal folk have a chance with Sebastian Valmont? Ryan Phillippe revealed his lovelorn frustrations during a radio interview on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show.

The actor quipped that the media has dumped on him ever since his break-up with wife of seven years, mother of his children and Hollywood darling Reese Witherspoon. The latest incident involves Ryan's most-recent ex, Abbie Cornish. The former co-stars, who began dating after his divorce, privately ended their four-year romance face-to-face, but Abbie took things one step further.

Abbie had her publicist release a statement claiming that she had dumped him. "Who announces a breakup?" Ryan said. "I don't understand that! There's no need for that."

My guess is that Abbie felt that releasing a statement would result in more publicity and lead to more movie roles. Do you think she should have spoken out?


  1. I feel like I'm just dumping more crap on this crapload, but I have to admit that the thought that Abbie wanted to give this a spin for her advantage did occur to me. And I say that as an Abbie Cornish fan. But I'm a Ryan fan too and the whole thing seemed just a little too calculated on her part. I think he's gotten involved with two queens of the spin in his life, Reese and Abbie. I can see why he's made that new rule. Ryan, btw, I don't have a publicist. Call me.;-)

  2. Interesting perspective! Do you think that Reese was spinning her side as well? It was a little suspect that Ryan and Abbie came out as a couple so shortly after they announced their split...
