Witherspoon has been open that her marriage to Ryan Phillippe has not always been smooth sailing over the years.
The couple has seen a marriage counselor to try and patch up their differences. Phillippe once said, "The biggest mistake is not doing therapy, ignoring it, and having the marriage fall apart because of laziness.
Sources say Reese has expressed concern lately over Ryan's partying -- partying without her. And, we're told, Reese believes children help cement relationships.
Hollywood is littered with young celebrities who marry, and then one shoots to superstardom, leaving the other in the dust. Reese's meteoric rise to command $29 million per movie has taken its toll. Sources around town, especially in Malibu, say that Ryan does some serious flirting.
A photographer snapped a shot of Phillippe with an extra during a break from the set of Clint Eastwood's 'Flags of Our Fathers,' which is shooting now. We're told the photos upset Reese.
Reese is not looking for a blockbuster starring role to follow her Oscar-winning performance in 'Walk the Line.' Instead, she's looking at supporting roles, which would allow her to spend more time with her family. She's currently playing second seat to Christina Ricci in the indie fairytale, 'Penelope,' which is currently filming in London.
More to the point, Phillippe is undeniably a good father to their two children, Ava, 6, and Deacon, 2. Reese has privately confided in friends that expanding her family is more important to her than a career.
**I think it's just stupid rumors...I love Reese and Ryan...hopefully just a slow week for news
