Ryan Phillippe Happy To Be Single

Ryan Phillippe is looking for "personal focus".

The actor - who has children Ava, 10, and Deacon, six, with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon - admits he has been "dating" since his recent split from long-term girlfriend Abbie Cornish but thinks it would be a good idea for him not to enter a relationship for a while.

He said: "I'm dating - sort of. My emphasis right now is on the kids and career. I think it would be good for me to be single for a little bit. Yeah, find some focus, some personal focus."

The 35-year-old star - who split from Reese in 2006 after seven years of marriage - admits he still has a "great" connection with his former spouse, which they feel is important for the sake of their children.

He added in an interview with US TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres: "Things are great. It is so important as divorced parents to keep that connection. It makes the kids feel better that the parents are interacting. We go to all the school events together, and we're there for each other.

"From one week to the next you don't know where you're going to have to be for a promotional tour or on location. We've done a really good job with that, and our kids are happy and healthy and doing awesome."
