Ryan Phillippe: Stop dumping on me

Ryan Phillippe divorced Reese Witherspoon almost two years ago - and he's still hearing about it.

Which bugs him to no end, he told Howard Stern on Stern's Sirius XM radio show.

"I've been dumped on in the press for relationship stuff since Reese and I divorced," he said, according to HowardStern.com. "I'm tired of getting s*** on. I don't feel like I deserve it. Things happen! How many people have you broken up with over your life?"

His frustration was accentuated by the breakup of his most recent relationship, with actress Abbie Cornish. He and Cornish ended their long-term romance several months ago, but the split became more public when it was announced by her publicist in February.

"I have a new rule: not to date anyone who has a publicist," he said. "Who announces a breakup? I don't understand that!"

Phillippe did say that he and Witherspoon, who have two children together, get along fine - partly thanks to their offspring.

"It's gotten to a place where we're great friends and great co-parents," he said.

    That's terrible that people are bashing this man. Howard should have showed him some hot lesbians or something. That way he could feel better.

    Yes, Ryan. Speak UP. Some need to live their own lives and stop becoming so involved in tabloid media to the extent of judgement. You don't know the man, so why the judgement? Butt out and live your own life to the fullest. Lighen up,

    Reese and Abbie are both betteroff without him. What a whiney jerk! Get a life dude. If you don't like the limelight, than get a regular day job.

    He's not very talented at acting or relationships – and unfortunately for him, he's not very interesting either. He's realizing the harsh fact that his fame was only reflected glory from Reese. He shouldn't complain about the articles about the break up – it's the only press he can get.

    I remember at an awards show where Reese was a recipient Ryan jumping up when she won and hooting and hollering like HE'D won. It was an obvious pathetic ploy for attention. When he broke up with Cornish he was quoted as saying 'she'd had too much going on with her Oscar publicity'.
    He's a spoiled brat who aligns himself with women more talented than he. Then he gets pouty when they get recognition. Did I say pathetic already? Enough said.

    You're whining? Really? You cheat on your wife, run around on your mistress, and you whine? How unmanly. Man up – you screwed up. What a loser

    What he fails to point out in his interview is that he left his wife for Abbie Cornish, his mistress. You can't cheat on your wife and then blame other people for not liking you because of it.

    Interestingly enough, I saw a preview for his latest feature film this weekend. Mr Phillippe's next venture on the silver screen? MACGRUBER!! Based on the stupid character from SNL.

    The most troubling part of this is that he had kids with both of those young women. THEY pay the price for his inability to stay interested in a relationship. All of the 'sh!*' is of his own creation. He should be angry with no one but himself.

    Ryan, you wanted fame, so don't complain too much about the scrutiny that comes with that fame. All the same, I can understand the frustration. Even if Ryan cheated on his wife, there could have been reasons for that that only the two of them are aware of. The public could be a little less judgemental, couldn't we?

    But there's so much to dump on. You can't act–you're a cheater & a liar. Waaaaaaaaa–what a baby. 10 years from now you'll be an usher in a movie house–if you're lucky.

    Who even cares about this ? Has he even had a successful movie ?
    If I recall, his movies were like his marriage. FLOPS.

    Open letter to Ryan:

    You seem to strike out with the ladies. Maybe you should try "playing on a different swingset." I would more than gladly take you in as my boyfriend! Cruel Intentions scene of him in his boxers, just sayin'

    He is getting dumped on about the Reese thing because he cheated on her. If you notice, any celeb who cheats gets dumped on. So glad he feels the need to clear the air right now, the week he is hosting SNL.....

    Ryan is a cool dude, he took JD out a night on the town. It goes to show that Ryan is a typical Joe that does not walk around like there sh!t dont stink. Ryan good for you there are many cool chicks out there that are not Hollywood.

    What he is NOT saying is that people are dumping on him because he cheated on Reese with Abby. It's not as if their marriage just broke down and they went their separate ways, it was because of his infidelity and Reese's persona as the cute, nice, All-American girl. So sorry, Ryan, you gotta deal with it!

    Gorgeous=Not a jerk, so does that mean "Average to unattractive= Jerk?

    Shelli, your comment lacks logic.

    As for this actor, if I were him I would be annoyed by all of this bad press too.

    Ryan is one of the most gorgeous men on this planet, and I highly doubt he is a jerk.

    Ryan, don't focus on the negative. You are young, cute and have the most revered profession in the world. Make the most of it and enjoy!!! After all...2012 is right around the corner, and believe me, none of this will matter anymore!!!!
