Ryan Phillippe's Life Change

Subscribe to Ryan Phillippe alerts

Ryan Phillippe is undergoing a "rebirth".

The 35-year-old actor - who recently split from long-term girlfriend Abbie Cornish and is divorced from Reese Witherspoon, the mother of his two children - thinks he has been too serious in the past and now feels like he is experiencing a change in his life.

He said: "My aims right now are primarily just to enjoy myself. I've been really self-serious at times

"You could argue with my age that it's close to midlife. But I really feel like it's a rebirth. I feel more like myself than I have in 10 years, and more motivated and capable than I have in a long time. I think that's a great feeling to have at 35."

Ryan also revealed he doesn't worry too much about how his work is perceived so long as he had the right "intent" behind taking on the project.

He explained in an interview with Men's Health magazine: "I've never been one to follow the crowd. I want to take chances and make movies that provoke thought and conversation.

"One thing I've learnt is to do nothing expecting a specific result. Do it only because your heart tells you to. Your intent matters more than the result, otherwise you're setting yourself up for nothing but disappointment.

"I try to enjoy what I do now, because then t doesn't matter where I go or how it's perceived, because I know that my own truth is behind it."
