Ryan Phillippe is ‘thankful for the freedom that comes with breaking addictions’ as he celebrates sobriety milestone
September 14, 2023
Ryan Phillippe is on a sobriety journey, and is celebrating a major milestone.
“Officially the longest I’ve gone since I was a teen without some kind of nicotine or marijuana in my system(among other things…),” the “Cruel Intentions” actor wrote in the caption of a post on his verified Instagram page on Thursday.
He continued that he’s “feeling thankful for the freedom that comes with breaking addictions and dependency on substance.”
Phillippe posted a selfie in which he was seen wearing a white muscle tee and chewing on a toothpick. Sharing the same photo on his Instagram story on Thursday, he also wrote that his “only remaining addictions are toothpicks and self-improvement.”
The actor previously opened up about his mental health during a 2017 interview with Women’s Health, saying that he struggles with “patience and depression, and I’m thinking about how to focus and steady myself and be kinder and better. Meditation and exercise work for me.”
“Depression could manifest in a thousand different ways depending on who it is. I don’t think there’s any reason not to talk about it. We can help each other cope and give tools that we learn along the way,” he also said.
Phillippe discussed how depression has been “a huge obstacle” since he was a child in an interview with Elle in 2015, saying, “As you get older I think it decreases some, but I’m just innately kind of a sad person.”
These days, however, Phillippe – who shares two children with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon – appears to have a more positive outlook.
“Sobriety, clarity, and spiritual connectedness feels real good,” he said at the end of his post on Thursday.

He still looks great but Jesus in my younger years his turns in White Squall and 54 used to get me hard. He was one fucking sexy guy.

He still looks extremely hot, but he is one eye surgery away from becoming mixed race.

Weed is all he wants to publicly admit to r1. He admits there are harder drugs he was using, coke I would assume.

His kids are grateful for his DNA, which tamped-down Reese's witchy features.

The sex tape with Ryan and Hunter would be a block buster judging by the compounded length and girth. Why do they use all that c̶o̶c̶k̶ coke with cheap hoes?

R10, that is what Drew Pinsky (aka Dr. Drew) said when he was outed for having regularly used cocaine during his Loveline years, after having denied it for years and masqueraded as a paragon of virtue towards other users: he said he would never have admitted to it before his kids had at least turned 25 as you cannot set an example and expect a certain behavior from your kids if you admit that you yourself indulged in such deviant habits.

He reminds me of what Jack Nicholson said about Michelle Pfeiffer in Wolf.
You're very beautiful and you think men are only interested in you because you're beautiful, but you want them to be interested in you because you're you. The problem is, aside from all that beauty, you're not very interesting.

Cagey. We don't learn his hard addictions. And we don't know the length of his sobriety milestone. It could be 4 months for all we know.

I wonder what happened between Ryan and Ava. She is in a gazillion pictures with Reese, but the last one with Ryan was several years ago. At least his son his loyal and there for him.

Nothing about poor, dull, narcissistic Ryan today is going to get a career back that was based on being a very faceable twink.

I've known quite a few people who quit drinking in their forties because their bodies just couldn't handle all that booze anymore.

It’s good he’s improving himself. It’s never late to change. He was very attractive in the 90s. He’s still very attractive but I feel he had more of a glowing aura in his 20s that made him irresistible. He looks jaded and tired now despite maintaining his body. That partying lifestyle does take a toll.
|by Anonymous||reply 30||September 17, 2023 3:37 PM
I think he has a fine B list career. He does short stints on TV and the occasional mid-budget movie. He's clearly not hurting for money, so I'm sure he's okay.

Everybody had a glowing aura in their 20s. The man is 50. Nobody is glowing at 50.

R1 You can be dependent on weed. Anything is addictive especially if your brain starts to associate it with pleasure and reward. I’ve known people who can’t even get up in the morning or do anything type of job without getting high first.
R31 Speak for yourself. I have known older men who are still glowing. It’s a mentality that comes from self assurance and being content with one’s life. A lot of young people look washed up and jaded actually.

R34 You clearly never been in high income areas around solidly middle class, happy and athletic men in middle age. I see many silver foxes who look glowing into their 40s and 50s. Ryan got chewed up and spat out by the industry very quickly and he admitted to drug addiction. He had kids too eerily as well.

Ryan Philippe threads always attract the bitchiest and defensive posters. I wonder if it’s jealousy of his looks and wasted potential or vicarious living through a good looking middle aged white man. He’s a mediocre actor, still pretty hot and financially he’s okay but weird how his threads get oddballs who get so emotional at any moment.

[ R 15 ] yes, that leaked cock video and "Gosford Park" are his best works. I suppose his physical beauty outranks his acting talent but there are worse crimes. I always found him a pleasant screen presence.

He looks amazing for almost 50. Esp. compared to the average American man his age.
Hell, not even average. A lot of celeb men his age don't look as good as he does. Dicaprio is exactly the same age.

Leo did not age nearly as well (a notable problem for many men of Italian american descent).
However, Ryan would gladly trade in his abs to have half of Leo’s career, Oscar & wealth

R40 I wouldn't be so sure about that. When I was at my peak looks, and I was a knockout for years, I would not have traded my body fitness, with comes with health, and my looks, for a fortune. I wasn't financially desperate. Ryan probably isn't financially desperate, even if he's probably only barely rich.

I didn't know Leo was Italian-American. I figured he was of German descent. He looks like a German peasant.

If I’m not mistaken, Reece was responsible for paying Ryan palimony for YEARS!
That’s gotta be a tad humiliating for someone like Ryan working in the same “small town” and industry. Not only has Reece down remarkably well with her acting (Oscar for her too) but via her production company she’s worth nearly a billion

Reese gave Ryan a lot of money over the years, in addition to the divorce settlement.

It was either on Lipstick Alley or the old IMDb message boards that someone insisted that Ryan had black ancestors. Looking at his facial features I can see that…anything is possible in America. There are some tri-racial isolates that lived in Delaware and Maryland at one point.

He looks very German, which is what his ancestry mostly is.

The face has not aged well, and perhaps he's gone wrong the way the fillers were used.

It doesn't mean that she's not a cunt, which I've always gotten the impression that she is.

Is Ryan wearing makeup to age his character in this clip or is it just the dark hair that’s making him look older?

People often take drugs and drink alcohol in order to feel better or for comfort, but they are basically depressants and wreck your physical and mental health. It's good that he has reached a sobriety milestone.
