Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have separated after seven years of marriage and two children. In a statement issued today their publicist says:

“We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time.”

Reese initiated the split, though sources say it wasn’t triggered by a single event but rather it was “cumulative.” Which is a nice way of saying Ryan Phillippe’s been a jerk for years. Plus I bet he can’t benchpress an elephant or defeat ninjas in hand to hand combat. So pretty much I win at everything.
