Ryan Phillippe has confirmed he is "dating" again.

The 'Lincoln Lawyer' star was said to have split with actress Amanda Seyfried last month, but their relationship appears to be back on track after Ryan admitted today (11.03.11) he is in a relationship.

Speaking on the Ellen Degeneres show, he coyly said: "I'm dating. Not nearly as voracious as the magazines like to make out, but I am dating."

'Red Riding Hood' star Amanda, 25, has also been coy about the nature of her relationship with the 36-year-old hunk, saying earlier this week: "I've been 'seen' with him."

The couple started dating after meeting at a Halloween party last October, but were last month said to have split up, although the were pictured leaving a restaurant together in Los Angeles on Wednesday (09.03.11).

Amanda previously dated British actor Dominic Cooper after they met on the set of 'Mamma Mia' and admitted she had her "heart broken pretty hard" when they split.

Ryan was married to Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon until 2006, and the couple have two children together, Ava, 11, and Deacon, seven.

Speaking at the premiere of 'Lincoln Lawyer' last night (10.03.11) he told how he was "proud" Ava's music taste is more mature than listening to teen hearthrob Justin Bieber.

He said: "She's into gymnastics and is an equestrian. She'd prefer to listen to the Beatles over Justin Bieber, which I'm kind of proud of."
