Reese Witherspoon Holds Ryan Phillippe Responsible For Her Lousy Movies

The Cinema Society & Zenith Watches Screens Flags Of Our Fathers

Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon blames her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe for all the bad things that happened to her following their divorce, including her bad movies.

She was married to Ryan from 1999 to 2007 and says that her luck turned on her after winning an Oscar for her role in Walk the Line.

“Phew, that was a tough year that followed. I got divorced the next year and I spent a few years just trying to feel better.
You know, you can’t really be very creative when you feel like your brain is scrambled eggs. I was just kind of floundering career-wise cause I wasn’t making things I was passionate about, I was just kinda working.
It was really clear the audiences weren’t responding to anything I was putting out there.”

Reese also reveals that she felt really hurt because critics slammed her acting in various movies since her split from Ryan.

”I thought I was reading a profile on another actor, and somewhere at the end it said, you know, the people who are washed up, and at the end it included me, Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson. It really hurt my feelings, really hurt my feelings.”
