Pre-NOPE: Reese Witherspoon's Fortune Up For Grabs

by at . Comments

According to TMZ .com, Reese Witherspoon may not have walked the financial line so well when she entered into her marriage.

The website reports that the actress never asked her less well off husband, Ryan Phillippe, to sign a prenup. Her fortune could now be up for the taking.

And what a fortune it is! Witherspoon now commands $20 million a movie, as she made $30 million in 2005 alone with hits Walk the Line and Just like Heaven. That's almost as many dollars as Flavor Flav has children.

Phillippe, in contrast, has been commanding a paltry $2.5 million per film. Under California law, without a prenup, earnings during a marriage are divided up 50/50.

There shouldn't be any fighting during the settlement, at least. Sources ranking a divorce on a scale of one to 10 - with one being a peaceful breakup and ten being David Hasselhoff-like - say the Witherspoon/Phillippe split is a three.

Using that scale, however, we can't count high enough to determine what Paul McCartney and Heather Mills would be? 57? 9,709?
