Ryan’s New Digs

by admin/June 19, 2008/No Comments

Crash-survivor Ryan Phillippe has recently invested in some real estate—a sprawling, 8,300 square-foot mansion in the Hollywood Hills, to be exact, which reportedly cost the actor $7,175,000. Some details from the LAT:

The house, which had been listed at $7,470,000, was on the market for 34 days. (Pessimists, take note.) The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house has 8,300 square feet, according to the listing details.

There are two master suites with an office area in each, a large living room and deck for parties and a media room with 14-foot ceilings. The outdoor living area includes a patio with a chef’s barbecue, a spa, a sauna and steam room, a fire pit and an Asian-style gazebo overlooking the pool. There’s also a two-story gym.

If the lodgings seem excessive—and we’ve included some of its many other luxurious amenities above—we’d remind you that the gloweringly intense actor’s career has been enjoying an upswing lately, having seemingly become Hollywood’s go-to-guy for playing tormented government employees in projects like Flags of Our Fathers, Breach, and Stop-Loss.

Along with their other war buddies, Brandon and Steve try to make peace with civilian life. Then, against Brandon´s will, the Army orders him back to duty in Iraq, which upends his world.

Hey everyone. Sorry for the lack of updates for this site. I opened it with the goal of providing Ryan Phillippe fans with all of the latest information about the actor, and it seems as if I have done anything but that. However, now that school is over for the semester, I have a little bit of extra time on my hands to devote to my site. I have big plans for phillippe-online in the near future. With the help of Michelle- the co-webb- I hope to add much more to the site, and frequently keep you updated on all of the latest news. Please be sure to check back daily! Thanks for visiting, I hope that you will make this your number one stop for all things Ryan Phillippe.

CRASH star RYAN PHILLIPPE credits Hollywood legend PAUL NEWMAN with giving him the impetus to become an actor.
The 33-year-old was undecided about his career path until he watched Newman in 1967 film Cool Hand Luke.

He says, “I didn’t want a small life. I wanted to experience something different. I aspired to that even without knowing how to achieve it.

“I remember being fascinated and inspired by his (Newman’s) performance.”

Film Review: Stop-Loss

by admin/April 28, 2008/No Comments

Anti-Iraq war dramas may make their makers feel better, but they rarely make them much money. So you can understand the thinking behind keeping much mention of Iraq or war off the poster for Stop-Loss, and instead sticking the hunky young cast in vests, all smiles, atop a jeep.

But teens in search of a good time are in for a shock. Ryan Phillippe, Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt play soldiers returned to Texas after six months on the frontline, who start suffering from terrible flashbacks.

Phillippe remains the most sane, until he finds that his tour of duty has been involuntarily extended by a procedure known as stop-lossing. Phillippe is terrific, reprising his conflicted soldier routine from Flags of our Fathers, but Kimberly Peirce’s belated follow-up to Boys Don’t Cry (1999) suffers from a sluggish pace and a very bland love interest (Abbie Cornish).
