Birth Name: Ryan Phillippe
Birth Place: New Castle, Delaware, USA
Born on Sept. 10, 1974 and raised in New Castle, DE, as a kid, Phillippe played soccer and achieved a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, but his school did not have a theater department so he never considered acting. Around the age of 14, though, he became enamored of the film "Cool Hand Luke" (1967) and subsequently anything Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, and similarly complicated tough guys. He decided he wanted to learn about acting, reading any books he could find on the subject. Not long afterwards, a casting agent discovered the handsome teen while he was getting his haircut at a barbershop. Phillippe began traveling to New York regularly for auditions, and eventually began to land modeling work....
