The 40-year-old actor opened up on his divorce from the 39-year-old actress in an interview with Larry King. Phillippe and Witherspoon were both 23 years old when they wed in June 1999, and officially divorced in October 2007.
"No, I think more of the problem was age," the star told King after the host asked if the split was due to the couple both being actors. "We got together so young. I think it can create issues, two people in this industry, because there's so much noise that goes along with it, but no."
