The interview is compelling, but how can you not get distracted by these HOT photos of Ryan?
“I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce,” Ryan Phillippe, 35, admits about the failure of his marriage to Reese Witherspoon in the latest issue of Men’s Health, which also features these drool-worthy shots of the Stop-Loss actor’s perfect body. “But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings? If someone lives through an accident, his aim is to become better and healthy. My aim is always to progress.” Well, Ryan, we know one area you’re CLEARLY making progress on — your incredible physique!
Ryan tells the mag he deals with life’s many stresses through exercise. “I like feeling strong,” he says. “I want to throw my kids up in the air and wrestle them. Working out has become about functionality. I want my head clearer, I want to relieve the stress, and I want to feel capable and strong.”
And Ryan’s diet involves more than just watching what he eats — he also cooks for his kids, Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6! “There’s something about the kids knowing the parent is making the food for them with love,” he says. “It’s worth it to me to do that extra work whenever possible, because I see the benefit it has. My kids think I’m an amazing cook, and that’s all that matters.”
