Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon love story
While many people think that Reese Witherspoon and her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, met on the set of “Cruel Intentions” in 1999, the pair’s relationship actually dates a bit farther back — to Witherspoon’s 21st birthday two years prior, to be exact. “I crashed her party,” Ryan told Pennsylvania newspaper, The Morning Call, in 1999 (via E! News). “I went with a friend because I knew there would be free food and drinks. I was just sitting back in the corner pounding away the drinks when somebody walked over and introduced Reese to me.”
Witherspoon recalled their rom-com worthy meet-cute in an interview with Jane a year prior, telling the outlet, “I don’t know what came over me – maybe the seven Midori sours – but I told him, ‘I think you’re my birthday present.’ He thought it was so flattering, and now that I think about it … how embarrassing!”
Just two years after meeting and a few months after the premiere of the couple’s cult classic film, “Cruel Intentions,” Witherspoon and Phillippe tied the knot in a charming ceremony in Charleston, South Carolina in June 1999.
