Rumors are heating up, again, on Ryan Phillippe's secret romance with Abbie Cornish as photos of them getting close and personal have been on the net.
While Perez Hilton claimed to have spotted Ryan's daughter with former wife Reese Witherspoon, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe, shopping for holiday gifts with Cornish in LA, photos of the actor and the Aussie actress getting very attached at a friend's home in Beverly Hills have emerged only to fuel the persistent speculation on their hush hush romance.
Cornish and Ryan, who're romantically linked during the filming of their big screen project "Stop Loss," were photographed enjoying some alone time and seemed to be very affectionate. Photos of them showed Cornish wearing a ring on her finger only to fuel speculation that they are already engaged.
Ryan and Reese issued a statement announcing their separation back in October 2006. She officially filed for divorce on November 8, citing "irreconcilable differences." They then had their divorce finalized on October 5, 2007.
As of Reese, she's now dating actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
