"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?
