Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe announced today they are separating.
I don't know about you, but I'm sad. I always thought these guys were really cute together! Rumors have been circulating for some time now. I guess the couple lasted longer than most but it's still sad.
(By the way, if anyone wants to post a comment baout how inane this topic and how pathetic I am for wasting my time on it, by all means go ahead and waste your time posting your inane comment. I've posted on poltics, the war, the election, abortion, mormonism etc. If I want to indulge in celebrity gossip then by golly it's my right as an American Gatherite. This isn't CHina. Furthermore, I don't believe in guilty pleasures. I like what I like and I'm not going to apologize for it.)

LOS ANGELES (Oct. 30) - Reese WitherspoonÂ and Ryan PhillippeÂ , who started the year on an Oscar-winning high, are ending it on a low note: The couple have separated.
"We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate," publicist Nanci Ryder said in a statement issued Monday on behalf of the couple.
"They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time," the brief statement concluded. Ryder said she could not elaborate on the split.
Witherspoon, 30, and Phillippe, 32, have two children, 7-year-old Ava and 3-year-old Deacon. The couple, who co-starred in the 1999 movie "Cruel Intentions," married that year.
In March, Witherspoon won a best-actress Academy Award for her role as June Carter Cash in 2005's "Walk the Line." Phillippe co-starred in the best-picture winner, "Crash," and is starring in Clint EastwoodÂ 's latest film, the World War II drama "Flags of Our Fathers."
