Ryan Phillippe wants the world to know he approves of ex-wife Reese Witherspoon's recent engagement to CAA agent Jim Toth, and the MacGruber star is glad his former wife of seven years has found the right man to make her happy.
Phillippe told the Daily News:
- "I'm very happy for both Reese and Jim. I wish nothing but the best for the mother of my children."
Phillippe and Witherspoon met at her 21st birthday party in March 1997, where she introduced herself by saying, "I think you're my birthday present." They immediately began working together on Cruel Intentions and Reese became pregnant with daughter Ava in December 1998. They quickly became engaged and were married the following year. They divorced in 2007.
Phillippe revealed in the May issue of Men's Health he felt "sadness and complicated feelings" about the divorce but wondered, "how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?"
After a very public hook-up/break-up with actress Abby Cornish, the Crash star has recently been linked to actress Amanda Seyfried. We'd love to see Phillippe get his happy ending, too!
