So is Abbie Cornish’s interview with W Magazine the smoking gun when it comes to the breakup of Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon’s marriage? Am I reading between the lines? Should I stop trying to figure it out and send Abbie and Ryan a housewarming gift already?
Phillippe and Cornish were suspected of beginning their affair while the two were co-starring in the movie Stop-Loss, although they both denied it at the time. But Cornish now admits that when she left Australia to come to the U.S. “it was love that brought me here, not work,” she says. The actress goes on to say, “I think the city feels and looks a little bit different because of that.”
Cornish now lives with Phillippe and spends time with his and Witherspoon’s two children: Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5.
While Witherspoon has called her divorce “humiliating and isolating,” Cornish – whom W sympathetically says was “cast as the culprit” – insists it was “a really difficult time for me.”
Yes, because homewrecking is so exhausting.
