People magazine reported online that documents filed on Thursday show the couple, who separated back in 2006, had reached an agreement on finances and custody of their two children, after seven years of marriage.

Witherspoon is dabbling in producing and has reportedly been dating actor Jake Gyllenhaal, while Phillippe is with Australian actress Abbie Cornish. He recently starred in the war film “Stop-Loss.”

It’s so sad it came to this. They had everything. Such a pity Ryan lost so much – a beautiful wife and two beautiful children…no matter what, for him nothing will be the same.

Hollywood divorces, are they really still news worthy?


it’s really so sad…………………………….


well i guess they had their reasons after all we feel sad for their separation but we dont know what leads to this unhappy ending may be it was better that they left each other now as friends or they would have been fighting over and over which might lead to them hating each other, so this is better that way. who knows may be they will get back together soon :)

I commend the way they both conducted themselves during the divorce always thinking about the children. I hope they both find love and happiness again. Ryan hasn’t lost his children at all, I’m sure he still plays a large part in their lives and always will.
