And I really thought these two might make it...TMZ is reporting that Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon have split. "We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate," the couple's rep said in a statement released to TMZ on Monday. "They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time."Ryan and Reese met at her 21st birthday party. Shortly after, Reese became pregnant and the couple got hitched in 1999. They have two kids -- Ava, 7, and Deacon, 3.They have long been seen as an odd couple in Hollywood. While Reese has a reputation for being a bit of a goodie-goodie, Ryan was always more of a brooding bad boy, often seen toking up in his car and he famously heckled Joaquin Phoenix earlier this year at the Golden Globes.TMZ reports that Reese has contacted celebrity divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman, who has represented Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Marie Presley. However, divorce papers have not been filed.
