Ryan Phillippe says that, when choosing his work, he only takes on serious acting roles that will justify the amount of time he must be away from his children.
Ryan told BANG Showbiz: “I like making movies that make people think. I like making movies that push buttons, or make people uncomfortable, or question the world around them.
“That is something that is satisfying to me when I choose to take time away from my children to dedicate myself to work.”
Ryan has two children, daughter Ava and son Deacon, with Reese Witherspoon, from whom he is separated.
