Ryan Phillippe: ‘I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years; 5 of them are good’

Ryan Phillippe

Ryan Phillippe is promoting his directorial debut, Catch Hell. Ryan co-wrote the script with a friend (Joe Gossett) and stars in the main role. Ryan says he “kind of plays himself,” which is to say he plays an actor whose career has hit a lull. Not-Ryan is a character who gets chased by the paparazzi but can’t land a movie. I don’t know how close this is to the truth. Ryan hardly ever gets papped these days. He may simply be good at evading the cameras.

Ryan certainly feels like his acting career isn’t the greatest. He spoke with the LA Times about how he dislikes all of his films — except for five of them, which he does not name. Mystery! Cruel Intentions has to be one of the good ones. The movie was pure cheese but a guilty pleasure for many. I hope Ryan’s not dissing that movie, especially since he met the mother of his children during filming. I bet Ryan considers Flags of Our Fathers to be one of his good movies since Clint Eastwood directed it. He probably also liked Gosford Park; Crash was emotionally manipulative, but it won Best Picture, right? So he’s gonna be proud of that one. Maybe Lincoln Lawyer?

The turning point in Ryan’s career — 2011: “I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent [the heist flick, Setup]. It was just a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business.”

Where he is now: “It’s certainly not a lament of mine that I’ve fallen out of favor in Hollywood. I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years. And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you’re an actor for hire. So this is kind of the beginning of my wanting to take a little more control and be a little more involved.”

He’s tiring of acting: “Acting alone doesn’t sustain me the same way it used to. Which I think is completely OK if you’ve done something for 20 years. Trying something else becomes really appealing.”

His first time directing: “I love it bleeding together and being a question of how much is directly related to me or isn’t. I’m proud of this movie. I came in on time and under budget. I got it done, and it is what it is. It’s not giant. But I can’t wait to do the next one — especially since I won’t be required to be on-camera the whole time.”

[From LA Times]

I don’t know how to feel about this newfound trend of actors trashing their films. It bugs. Why must they appear so ungrateful for roles that struggling actors would love to play?

Ryan recently spoke about his co-parenting efforts with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon. They’ve led a relatively drama-free divorce. American citizen Reese has had far more drama on her own. Anyway, Ryan said he and Reese went on a family walk through Central Park and talked about how they shot Cruel Intentions there. Ava and Deacon “were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds.” I doubt Reese and Ryan went into great detail about this movie, right? The kids will see it on their own someday. And they will be sooo embarrassed to see their parents get it on.

17 Stars Who Have Strayed: They Cheated!!!

Once a cheater, always a cheater?

If that’s the case, you might wanna stay away from the following celebrities… no matter how attractive they are, no matter how well they dunk a basketball or how impressive they are in front of a camera.

Indeed, infidelity is not reserved for athletes or singers; male or females. 

Stars from all industries have strayed from their significant others – and while some have rebounded with hot new mates (darn you, Mila Kunis and Lindsey Vonn!), all hopefully regret the actions that landed them there.

Below, we present a rundown of 17 Celebrities Who Are Known Cheaters. Take note, future boyfriends, girlfriends and spouses:

Lindsay Lohan Co-Hosts The View, Loves Being Sober

Despite the fact that she has no projects to promote and her reality show has been canceled by Oprah, Lindsay Lohan has been on a full-blown media bender for the past 24 hours. 

Guess that’s better than her usual benders.

Lindsay Lohan on The View

Lindsay admitted her sex list was real on last night’s Watch What Happens Live and this morning she co-hosted The View, where she shared more lies and not-so-stunning revelations.

Linds kicked the episode off by proclaiming that her sobriety is going “great,” and Whoopi Goldberg proved why she’s an Oscar winner by somehow managing to keep a straight face.

Goldberg then asked Lohan about her trip to Coachella last weekend, which Lindsay said was better than previous years, because she was in a “different headspace.” By which she probably means her head was full of cocaine.

Lindsay also claimed she’s in a different place with regard to her love life these days, saying that she’s avoiding dating at the moment as men (and women) have “been a distraction” for her in the past.

This being daytime TV, Lindsay was a bit more tight-lipped about her romantic past than she’d been with Andy Cohen the night before.

Wow. A late night show and a morning show the next day? We wonder what gives Lindsay such energy. Red Bull? Coffee? Just kidding, it’s cocaine. 

Lindsay Lohan claims she got it in with Justin Timberlake back in the day.

Reese Witherspoon shows off baby Tennessee: have you ‘forgiven’ her yet?

Reese Witherspoon’s blonde genes are super-strong, right? These are new photos of Reese and baby Tennessee visiting a friend’s house yesterday in Brentwood. This is the first time I’ve really gotten a good look at Tennessee’s face and… he looks a lot like Deacon at that age. It’s like the biological Jolie-Pitt children – certain genes are just stronger than others, which means that all of Reese’s babies all sort of look the same, regardless of the paternity. If I didn’t know better, I would even say that Tennessee looks like he could be Ryan Phillippe’s son as opposed to Jim Toth’s son.

Reese’s drunken, smack-talking, crazy arrest happened about two months ago. Have you already forgiven her? I haven’t. I haven’t been able to look at photos of her without thinking about how crazy she acted when her husband was being arrested for a DUI. It completely changed the way I think about her. It completely changed the way I think about Reese’s relationship with alcohol too, and remember – she hasn’t stopped drinking and neither has Jim. They were photographed getting boozy a month after their dual arrests too.

I think what bothers me most of all is that now I’m even more aware of Reese doing things for “show” and how it seems like she’s actively trying to mix up her image a little bit. Last week, she was shopping in Beverly Hills in a fluttery miniskirt and the wind gusted up… and you could see that she wasn’t wearing underwear. She flashed her naked butt to the paparazzi – go here to see the NSFW photos. It’s like she’s a Disney teenager trying to prove that she has a more “adult” image.

Cute kid, though.

Did Rihanna secretly hook up with Justin Bieber several times last year?

These are some outtakes from Rihanna’s Terry Richardson photo shoot for her Rolling Stone cover. The shots aren’t as bad as I would expect – Uncle Terry turns the most average-looking girls into p0rn stars, so when he starts out with someone pretty like Rihanna, the result is… interesting. It’s still kind of p0rny, but it’s definitely not as gross as it could be. Anyway, I have a story to tell you, and it’s sad/funny/gross. Did Rihanna hook up with Justin Bieber at some point? Ugh.

Are Justin Bieber and Rihanna more than just friends? Selena is reportedly “devastated” and can’t believe Justin would do this to her. But isn’t Rihanna dating Chris Brown?

The report claims that Selena discovered the news and immediately dumped Justin.

“It really cut like a knife because it happened in February 2011, when Selena and Justin had been dating for months and were falling in love. It’s caused Selena to question their entire relationship.”

Sources close to Justin say that he would “never” hook up with Rihanna and nothing physical every happened.

“He would never tell anyone he messed around with Rihanna because it would make him look like a dirty dog.”

Selena actually thinks that Justin and Rihanna have been “hooking up all along.” Wow, now that would be pretty crazy!

According to this report, Selena believes it happened many times during the wild parties Rihanna threw at her LA home or at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills where Justin stays often. But the most crazy allegation is that they hooked up over the few days they were in NYC to film the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!

“During breaks they’d sneak away to hotel Giraffe,” a source says. “They were alone, their security made sure of it. Hotel staff blocked off the entire floor for them.”

Even though Selena and Justin were spotted at the YLA show on Feb. 2, the singer has reportedly moved on and doesn’t want him back.

[From Hollywood Life]

At first I was like, “This is so gross, of course it never happened.” But then I thought about it – would you really be that shocked and appalled to learn that Rihanna fooled around with Justin Bieber? I wouldn’t. It seems strangely in character for her. Remember, Rihanna was fooling around with Ryan Phillippe for a while too, and Ryan’s just an older version of Justin Bieber (Yeah, I said it). As for Justin… well, I’ve always felt he has a thing for darker ladies. Even before he got with Selena, he seemed to have a type – Latinas, black ladies and even an Armenian. So it totally could have happened.

Ryan Phillippe Stops By Kitson For Kids

ryan phillippe shops at kitson for kids

Ryan Phillippe was seen leaving Kitson For Kids in West Hollywood yesterday. Clearly the dad of three got something, since he’s carrying a bag. After his nasty breakup with Abbie Cornish, Ryan has been keeping a very low profile. We do see him with Ava and Deacon, so he’s involved in his kids’ lives.

There has been a lot of speculation about Ryan’s dating life. Now that his kids with Reese Witherspooon are getting older, it’s good Ryan’s keeping a lower profile in that regard. It’s completely understandable that he’d be dating, but what kid wants to read about their dad’s dating life in the tabloids? I can’t think of one who would find that even remotely entertaining.
