18 Celebrity Relationships That Started As Affairs
Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish
Things were going perfectly fine with Ryan, Reese Witherspoon, and their two children. But that all changed after he met Abbie on the set of Stop Loss. Word got out that they’d been having an affair, and although both of them denied the rumors, it became a little too obvious to ignore. Abbie eventually admitted that she left Australia and came to the U.S. because “it was love that brought me here, not work” (…translation: it was Ryan). Reese revealed that her divorce from Ryan was “humiliating and isolating,” while Abbie mentioned that it was a “really difficult time” for her, too.
But as for Ryan and Abbie’s romance, it was pretty short-lived. They broke up after dating for three years, and apparently, it was because Ryan was rumored to be cheating on Abbie with Alexis Knapp. It was only until after their split that Alexis discovered she was pregnant with his child, but she gave birth to their daughter in 2011.
