Ryan Phillippe wishes Reese Witherspoon the best on engagement to Jim Toth
Ryan Phillippe sent sweet tidings to ex-wife Reese Witherspoon on Thursday, in regards to her recent engagement to Jim Toth.
"I'm very happy for both Reese and Jim," the actor said in a statement to the New York Daily News. "I wish nothing but the best for the mother of my children."
Phillippe and Witherspoon were young Hollywood royalty when they hooked up in the late '90s in a relationship that gained popularity with the release of the teen hit "Cruel Intentions," costarring Sarah Michelle Gellar. The couple, who have kids Ava and Deacon together, separated in 2006 and divorced in 2007, after which Witherspoon dated actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
The "Sweet Home Alabama" star took up with CAA's Toth after Gyllenhaal's exit. Phillippe is rumored to be dating actress Amanda Seyfried.
