Another One Bites the Dust

Young marriage doesn't seem to work for Hollywood. Ask Jamie Lynn Sigler, Jessica Simpson, Kate Hudson, and now, sadly Reese Witherspoon. After months of speculation by the tabloids and many whisperings of arguments between this golden couple, they have decided to formally separate. According to a statement made by their representative to TMZ, "We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time."

Evidently the split isn't because of one specific thing but rather a "cumulative" series of problems. Maybe it is because he got loaded at her Golden Globes triumph. Maybe it is because he was emasculated by the fact that he was still "that hot guy from 'Cruel Intentions'" and she was an A-list Hollywood star.

All snarkiness aside, they have two beautiful children and it is sad that they couldn't make it work. Just last year when Reese won her Oscar she stated "I'm lucky to find a person to share my life, and the best friend I'll ever have...I don't think I can imagine a better guy than the one I've ended up with."
