Attention celebrity gossip bloggers: Abbie Cornish is not a home wrecker!

So states Ryan Phillippe adamantly in the new issue of W magazine.

Abbie Cornish and Ryan Phillippe

"I had difficulties in my relationship, and in my marriage, long before I ever met her," the actor said about Cornish, who has been accused of breaking up the marriage between Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon in 2006. "She and I are close friends, and as far as if there is any future, that is not where we are at now."

Come on, Ryan, you're saying Abbie Cornish really isn't your girlfriend?

Give us some dirt here.

"That is what other people like to say or like to assume," he said, referring to entertainment news outlets that have claimed he and Abbie have been dating for years. "As far as I'm concerned, it's a friendship, and we are getting to know each other in a really difficult situation."

We don't feel much sympathy for Phillippe, but he does at least come across as human in describing the divorce as "the darkest, saddest place I had ever been," while adding "I wanted to take time to make sure that my kids were okay and to build a new life that was going to be suitable to being a single parent."

You can currently see Abbie Cornish in two places:

  1. On screen alongside Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth: The Golden Age;
  2. On the sidewalk, alongside Ryan Phillippe's daughter, Ava.

Us Weekly reports in its new issue that Cornish, who was rumored to be the main reason Phillippe split with Reese Witherspoon, still has "a ton of chemistry" with the actor - and has even been seen often with Phillippe and Witherspoon's kids.

On December 2, the couple took Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4, shopping in Los Angeles.

"Ava seemed very comfortable with Abbie," said a witness. "Ava picked a wreath and Abbie put it around her head as a joke. They were both laughing."

So, is Ryan Phillippe truly smitten with Abbie Cornish?

"Abbie is a free spirit. She indulges a side of Ryan that he's kept under wraps for years," said an insider.

With his ex-wife possibly still dating Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Phillippe is reportedly back together with his former mistress.

That's right, folks, there has been another Abbie Cornish sighting.

Pre Crazy Ryan Phillippe

This Australian actress and Reese Witherspoon's ex-husband supposedly starting having sex... while Ryan was still married.

Oops!

According to that loser celebrity gossip source, Perez Hilton, the pair stopped seeing each other once the affair was made public - but were spotted together again on August 5th in LA's Franklin Canyon Park.

"They were laughing," said a witness, "and obviously enjoying themselves."

Despite the rekindling of this flame, Phillippe is reportedly peeved about the Gyllenhitherspoon romance.

"Ryan is pissed about Jake," an insider told Us Magazine. Ryan told Reese he "didn't want ‘that guy' around their kids and then made some crude Brokeback Mountain remark."

The actor really sounds mature and level-headed in every way, doesn't he? Who would've guessed that Ryan Phillippe would give Spencer Pratt a run for the title of Biggest Jerk in Hollywood?

Did Ryan Phillippe commit adultery?

Giving his first comments about the divorce from Reese Witherspoon, the actor made one thing clear: maybe he did and maybe he didn't.

"I'm not a perfect person, but I'm not guilty of a lot of the things I have been accused of. My priority is and always has been the health and safety of my family," Phillippe said to People magazine.

Phillippe, 32, and Witherspoon, 30, have a daughter Ava, 7, and son Deacon, 3.

However, the actor will not comment on reports that a relationship with Abbie Cornish - the Australian actress who costars with him in an upcoming film and looks eerily like his ex - played a role in the demise of his seven-year marriage.

But his reps do vehemently deny the recent allegations of hard partying and drug use that we've scarcely heard about in the first place.

It's no secret that Phillippe has always enjoyed hitting the clubs with friends. He and Witherspoon "would fight over that kind of thing all the time. He got away with a lot and he knows it," according to a source at a Santa Monica bar that Phillippe used to frequent.

His rep, however, denies it: "Look, he went out, she went out, it wasn't a point of conflict."

The rep had no comment on how either side felt about the new hair of Ashley Olsen, though.

Whatever happens next, says a Phillippe pal, "I know they love their kids to death. So they'll do what they can to keep it from turning ugly."

This is awkward.

In the past, our celebrity look-alikes didn't have much in common (aside from, you know, their looks). But Suri Cruise and Bjork? They've probably never even heard of each other.

The same can't exactly be said for this pair. Indeed, Reese Witherspoon and Abbie Cornish are rumored to share more than the blonde locks you see below.

We apologize to Ryan Phillippe if pointing out these similarities makes things uncomfortable. But we've got a job to do.

By now, everyone is surely aware that Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are getting a divorce. No one knows the exact reason, however.

Too much time apart? Contrasting table manners?

A certain young, beautiful co-star?

Let's focus on that last one for a bit. Rumors are circulating that Phillippe had an affair with Abbie Cornish, an Australian actress that will be sharing the screen with Ryan in the upcoming film, The Golden Age.

But did they share a bedroom, as well? On October 10, Texan Lauren Scott witnessed Phillippe and a blonde, who fit Cornish's description, kissing at sushi restaurant Kenichi.

"I was pretty shocked that he would blatantly cheat on Reese in public," Scott told Us magazine.

We're not here to judge, just to introduce Cornish to the world. She's 24. She's 5'8". She hails from Down Under, so many on our staff compare this tall actress to Nicole Kidman. Kidman's camp had no comment on the comparisons.

Cornish will soon be seen in A Good Year alongside yet another Aussie, Russell Crowe. Will she make a move on that married man, too? It's hard to say.

But we'll be here to report on the mere possibility, don't worry.
