Ryan Phillippe And Reese Witherspoon Recently Discussed 'Cruel Intentions' With Their Kids

Ryan Phillippe has "gotten to a really great place" with his ex-wife Reese Witherspoon -- so great, in fact, that they recently had a terrific throwback conversation.

Phillippe told HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri on Monday about a fun family moment he had with his former spouse and their children -- Ava, 15, and Deacon, 10 -- when Witherspoon was in New York City promoting "Gone Girl" and "Wild."

"We got to meet up as a family and took a walk through Central Park with the kids, and it was funny -- we were reminiscing then because we shot a lot of 'Cruel Intentions' [there], so there we were with Ava and Deacon talking, and they were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds," Phillippe said.

Moments like that little reunion are proof Phillippe and Witherspoon have found an effective way to co-parent after divorce, he added.

"It's going well, and she's happy and remarried, and our kids are incredible. I'm proud of the way we've handled it and who our little people are," Phillippe said.

Phillippe's new film "Catch Hell," which marks his directorial debut, is in theaters Oct. 10.
