Ryan Phillippe 'Tired of Getting Shit' Over Reese Witherspoon Split

Ryan Phillippe says he's a little sick of still being called the bad guy for his split with Reese Witherspoon.

"I've been dumped on in the press for relationship stuff since Reese and I divorced," Phillippe tells Howard Stern.

"I'm tired of getting shit on," says the 35-year-old. "I don't feel like I deserve it. Things happen! How many people have you broken up with over your life?"

But "it's gotten to a place where we're great friends and great co-parents," he explains. In fact, they even call each other after breakups: "After I had my breakup, she called, and after she did, I called."

Phillippe and Witherspoon split in 2006 after seven years of marriage. The two now share joint custody of their 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son.

"I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce. But my aim is always to progress --- to make better decisions and be a better father, a better boyfriend, a better husband if it happens again."

As for what he's learnt since his most recent breakup with Abbie Cornish, who confirmed the news to tabloids in February, Ryan says: "I have a new rule: not to date anyone who has a publicist."

"Who announces a breakup? I don't understand that! There's no need for that."

Phillippe also told Stern that he and Witherspoon hadn't gotten together for 'ex sex'.

And about those rumors of him hooking about with Jessica Simpson (photosJessica Simpson photos)? "I've never met Jessica Simpson," he said.
