Ryan Phillippe Opens Up

Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish have been together ever since Reese and Ryan split but he wants everyone to know that Abbie was not the cause of the divorce.

"I had difficulties in my relationship, and in my marriage, long before I ever met her," he tells W magazine during an interview.

Ryan also made it a point to say that they are just friends and if it develops into something more serious so be it. "She and I are close friends, and as far as if there is any future, that is not where we are at now."

"That is what other people like to say or like to assume," he added. "As far as I'm concerned, it's a friendship, and we are getting to know each other in a really difficult situation."

As for his divorce with Reese he described it as "the darkest, saddest place I had ever been."

I know Ryan got a lot of heat during the divorce but he's definitely worked really hard to be a good father and I gotta respect that.
