LOS ANGELES – Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are officially single. The couple's divorce was finalized Oct. 5, according to court documents. Witherspoon cited irreconcilable differences when she filed for divorce on Nov. 8, 2006.
The couple were married for seven years and have two children, 8-year-old daughter Ava and 3-year-old son Deacon.
Witherspoon, 31, and Phillippe, 33, co-starred in the 1999 movie "Cruel Intentions" and were married that year. Their separation was announced last October.
Witherspoon won the best-actress Academy Award for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in 2005's "Walk the Line." She can next be seen in "Rendition," co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal, which is due out later this month.
Phillippe's screen credits include "Crash," "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Breach."
Court documents confirming the divorce were first posted by the celebrity Web site CelebTV.com.
