Ryan Phillippe has been able to turn personal pain into inspiration.
The actor — who stars in the new ABC series “Secrets and Lies” as the tortured Ben Garner, a man wrongfully accused of killing a young boy — said he knows what it’s like to feel down.
PHOTOS: Ryan's romantic history Phillippe, 40, and his 24-year-old law student love have been dating for four years.
Ryan was quoted as saying: “I’m going to spend a third of my year in New York… We have to wonder what girlfriend Amanda Seyfried thinks of this look! It's definitely a big departure from his normal squeaky clean-cut look.
"Also what's great about it — as you get older certain issues become more important to you.
I'm very involved in civil rights issues, and so to be with a woman who could actually make an impact in the legal realm — that's a beautiful thing." PHOTOS: Reese and Jim Toth's romance Stern couldn't agree more.
