Ryan Phillippe grew up with three sisters. His father is a chemist and his mother runs a
day-care centre. It was a neighbour who suggested to Ryan's mother that the angelic
looking teenager could make money doing commercials.
Two years later, at age 17, Phillippe left for New York. It took just seven months of beating
the pavement and doing the audition circuit for him to land a role on "One Life to Live", where
he played daytime's first gay teenage character.
The move to Hollywood came next for the young man, and he soon nabbed bit parts on the
television shows "Due South" and "Chicago Hope". Ryan's first major feature film was in
"White Squall" where he played the tragic character of Gil Martin. But the role which shot
him into super stardom was in the highly successful film "I Know What You Did Last Summer".
He is married to actress Reese Witherspoon. They have one child.
