Reese and Ryan:

They're No Hasselhoffs

10/31/2006 10:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

reeseryan1-1Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe may have parted company, but any bitterness seems to be in check.

TMZ broke the story Monday that the couple is separating and that Reese has already hooked up with prominent celebrity divorce lawyer Robert Kaufmann. Sources tell TMZ that the decision to split was made weeks ago but that their overriding concern before it became public was to protect their two children. Reese and Ryan were all too aware of the media onslaught that would be triggered by the split. One connected source calls their relationship "civilized" at the moment.

No doubt Hollywood took notice of the nuclear divorce between David Hasselhoff and Pamela Bach and the apparent collateral damage it did to their two children. TMZ is told that the problems in the Witherspoon-Phillippe relationship were "cumulative" and that no one incident triggered its demise.

Tom: Women Everywhere Hate You


That wacky ol' Mr. Redstone isn't finished hurling invective at Tom Cruise, and he definitely isn't sorry about his public humiliation of the "Mission: Impossible" star when he booted him and his production company off the Paramount lot this summer. "The explosion was good," says Viacom overlord Sumner to Vanity Fair magazine (via Page Six). "It sent a message to the rest of the world that the time of the big star getting all this money is over." What's more, Redstone says that it was indeed his much-younger wife Paula that got him thinking about giving Cruise the axe. Paula, says Redstone, "like women everywhere, had come to hate him ... He just didn't turn one [woman] off. He turned off all women, and a lot of men." Redstone adds that Cruise probably cost the studio $100 - $150 million because of his couch-jumping antics, and that was just on the third "M:I" alone.

Keira Opens Fire on Lindsay's House


Look out Lindsay! Keira Knightley's going to be pelting your house with machine gun fire and a hand grenade – in your next movie together, that is. Variety reports that the freckled phenom has joined the cast of "The Best Time of Our Lives," the true story of the relationships between Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, his wife Caitlin (played by Lindsay), his childhood friend Vera Phillips (Knightley) and Phillips' eventual husband. The plot centers around an incident in which, like most childhood friends tend to do, Phillips and Killick unloaded on Dylan and Caitlin's house with a machine gun and other weaponry. It's Lohan's next project after "Bobby," which opens this fall, and "Georgia Rule."


Ivanka's New Man? Topher, Not Lance


The suddenly ubiquitous Ivanka Trump has a new guy, and, no, he doesn't ride a bike for a living. Page Six tells us that it's "That '70s Show" star Topher Grace, and that the pair spent Ivanka's 25th birthday at Las Vegas' Pure with the curtains closed around their table for a full half-hour, after canoodling on the balcony during dinner at Social House with friends including Wilmer Valderrama. The newly ensconced couple "never left each other's sides" all night.


Moakler Loses Weight, Not Stretch Marks


Shanna Moakler's going through a lot – an impending divorce from estranged husband Travis Barker, getting booted off "Dancing With The Stars" – but she's still managed to lose most of the baby weight she put on after she had her third child, Alabama, late last year, as Celebrity Baby Blog's Danielle Friedland tells us. She hasn't exactly lost the evidence of her pregnancies entirely, though; she admits that she still has stretch marks, and that those little blemishes as well as her C-section scar are usually airbrushed out of photos. "Our babies are worth it," says Moakler.

Party Favors: Mick Makes Hillary Prez ... Kenny G Best Saxinet-Playing Golfer Ever ... Soderbergh to Make Not One But Two Che Films


Mick Jagger played Bill Clinton's 60th birthday concert at the Beacon Theater Sunday night, and he wasn't shy about poking fun at the former Prez and talking up his wife's political ambitions. "I'd like to welcome President Clinton," said Mick to the crowd, deadpan, according to Rush & Molloy. "And I see she's brought her husband ... Kenny G is the best golfer amongst musicians, says Golf Digest, with his better-than-par handicap. The curly-tressed horn-blower beat out such musical-golfing luminaries as Vince Gill, Bob Dylan (#63 on Golf Digest's list), and, um, Snoop Dogg (#44) ... Oscar-winning director is on board to make a biopic of Latin American revolutionary Che Guevara, says Variety, and he's got so much material apparently that he's going to make two films. Benicio Del Toro will play Guevara.

Sophia, Sophia. "Get a life" ? Is that the best you can do? Do you have an original thought in your head? You're on here so stop calling the kettle black. Since you obviously don't get it let me try explaining again, I'll leave out the big words for you: No one would be complaining if he kept his personal opinions to himself. He didn't. Time and time again he went on national T.V. to exclaim there is no such thing as PPD. What if a woman, influenced by his fame had stopped taking meds to control her PPD and by doing so killed her child? That is a risk he took that is unforgiveable. If lame-brained women like you want to view that as acceptable behavior fine. But you're outnumbered 100 to 1. And oh yeah, you mean WAS a great actor (insert fist in air here w/ YES!!!)

Dear Sophia,
thanks for your warm wishes. I am glad there are still some women with brains out there. If you don't mind I'd like to stop by your house later to give you some Scientology reading material and to give it to your husband up the poop shoot.

Love,
Tom Cruise

Mr. Redstone is even more pompous than Tom! How dare he say he can speaks for ALL WOMEN? Now it is his turn to apologize to not just one woman but to all women that happen just like Tom's work not his words.

In the entertainment world, it's the works that count. I don't care what actors said. They are ACTORs not CONGRESSMAN. Please!

Mick needs to keep his mouth shut about politics, especially when he isn't even from this country! He lives in LA LA Land. He looks like the walking dead, Great for HALLOWEEN! He looks like he's about 100 years old! Give it up MICK!

Why is everyone writing to me that Ryan is really a closet homosexual and that his marriage to Reese was a total scam to hide his hidden lifestyle?

Biotch Please!    

Keen Eye? More like Black Eye and busted lip your husband gives you every time you don't "submit" to him.

While he has you locked down with three kids and some vodka and painkillers to take the pain away while you "touch yourself" watching Bill O'Reilly. Your husband is at the nearest DUNGEON in a diaper asking Mr-Mistress to spank him cause he went BOO BOO in his Depend's diaper.

Stop trying to make everything into democrats this and republican that!!! Go over to FOX.com and support other Desperate Housewives!

Mick Jagger is getting uglier and uglier as the years go by. He looks like he is dressed up for Halloween all year long.

Sophia..you are not out there alone honey....
I am a Tom Cruise fan; will be there in the future; and could care less about those fembots that jump on any excuse to push their agendas for women..and I am a woman..and d.j...you are not giving women any credit for sorting out reality and facts from watching TV...How many times have you over done ...and wished you hadn't..we don't even know if Tom was sober when he jumped on the couch; we don't care if he is gay....90% of Hollywood is gay...leave it be...Sumner is a derilict; over the hill moron...married to a woman that could be his granddaughter and she made the decision..whoopee do...Tom is guilty of going public with his personal beliefs..He will return..and he will be worth every nickle I spend to see him

I AGREE WITH POST 14 (SOPHIA) AND POST 25 (JAN), I COULD CARE ABSOLUTLY LESS WHAT TOM CRUISES OPINION ON ANY MATTER IS, I HAVE MY OWN OPINIONS AND THOSE ARE WHAT MATTER TO ME AND MY LIFE. SO WHAT IF HE SAID THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PPD, DOES THAT MEAN YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT, NO. PERSONALLY I THINK TOM IS A GREAT ACTOR AND WHAT HE CHOOSES TO BELIEVE AND DO ON HIS OWN TIME IS BETWEEN HIM AND HIS FAMILY NOT US!!!!

sumner still has a job though doesn't he? i noticed you didn't bother to respond to my point: what if Tom's remarks had led a mother to go off her meds and injure her child? would you still defend him? my guess is you would because you're probably a Scientologist too. hey i think your body thetans are calling.
