Ryan Phillippe Distraught After Split with Reese Witherspoon

Ryan Phillippe has rarely spoken out about his divorce from Reese Witherspoon, but now the actor is opening up and really laying it out there. Ry told the U.K. magazine, Man About Town, that after he and his wife split he was suicidal. "After the divorce, I was a physical wreck. I wanted to die," he said. "I was ready to kill myself. I was not taking care of myself at all. I would wake up and cry and vomit."

The upside? Ryan thinks the emotional roller coaster has made him a better actor. "When I was younger, I didn't have enough to cry about. But since I've had kids, I feel my work has become better, because my life is fuller and more complicated, and I've experienced so many highs and lows."

I think he sounds pretty lonely. I hate when I think a celeb is a jerk and then they show a soft side and I get all duped and mushy. I'm going to try and ignore this sad part of Ryan -- he made his bed -- yet, somehow, I still want to tuck him in.
