Robert – it’s great that your ‘Water for Elephants’ co-star and friend Reese Witherspoon has been a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, but you don’t have to split with Kristen Stewart just because she divorced allegedly philandering ex- Ryan Phillippe.
She’s also apparently been a huge emotional help to you Rob, a source close to Reese tells HollywoodLife.com. “They have talked a lot because Reese has gone through her own really bad breakup and it’s worked out for her, so she has been trying to tell him that it only gets better and he should look at what she has gone through as the perfect example.” Reese is now happily married to second husband, CAA talent agent Jim Toth, and she is pregnant with their child.
Just because Reese had her heart broken by her first husband Ryan Phillippe and she decided to end their marriage, doesn’t mean that the situation is exactly the same.
Reese was married for seven years and had two children when she allegedly found private text messages between Ryan and his Stop Loss co-star Abbie Cornish in 2006.
This came on top of other rumors that Phillippe had allegedly been stepping out.
The situation had to have been extremely painful to Reese who, like Rob and Kristen, became romantically involved with Ryan when she was just in her early 20s. She married Ryan when she was 24.
But the thing is Rob – every situation and every person is different. Kristen Stewart is not necessarily just like Ryan Phillippe. Reese may have felt that Ryan was a lost cause at fidelity. Who knows – maybe he even admitted to her that he had fallen out of love with her.
Yes, Kristen cheated but it certainly appears that she knows she made a terrible mistake. She said it after all, in her public apology, which was issued the very day that her cheating photos were published. She said, “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.”
Just being willing to make that public apology, knowing that it would confirm her cheating was a HUGE and risky move by Kristen Stewart.
She knew that it could alienate her fans even more but she was willing to do it, if it would help save her relationship with you. That shows a depth of commitment to you (despite the cheating) that Ryan may not have felt for Reese.
My point is Rob – Reese is probably advising you to dump Kristen. She split with Ryan and eventually found greater happiness with her now husband, Jim Toth. Life and love did work out better for her.
However, Reese’s romance is not your romance. And Kristen is not Ryan. Kristen may very well be capable of learning from her error and re-committing to your relationship.
Psychologists and relationship experts have told us that this is very possible and that Kristen is not doomed to be a serial cheater.
So please keep that in mind. Take in what Reese says. But you also need to talk to Kristen. Listen to what she has to say. You owe that to yourself and to her.
Remember, Kristen is just 22 and she was taken advantage of by a man nearly twice her age. You may want to redirect some of your anger and blame.
You need to figure out what is right for YOU. It may not turn out to be what was right for Reese.
What do you think Hollywoodlifers? Should Rob take Reese’s advice with a grain of salt?
