Of course it's devastating. It's always hard when a cool, cute couple can't work things out. But it doesn't mean he was doing anything wrong, unlike what people are reporting.

Read the stories and they all cite the same US Weekly story, which quotes just one "Austin local," some woman who claims they made out in a restaurant. And Ryan's denied that he ever did anything, especially in that restaurant. And so has she. And the same US weekly story that started all this then turns around and quotes a waiter there who said they did no such thing, that there was no making out.

Bottom line is, it's always tough to keep a marriage together, particularly when you marry young, have two kids and two demanding, high-pressure careers. Add in the brutal spotlight of fame, and it's amazing they lasted as long as they did. They've talked about their challenges as a couple for years now, and I think it just finally all added up. Remember, it takes two people to make a marriage, and they both bring strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes, things don't work out.
