For being a pretty big star, Ryan Phillippe manages to keep most of his love life low-profile. Sure, his dating life will pop up in a headline or two every now and again, but considering how famous he is, he does a pretty good job of keeping his private life private.

But just because we're not constantly hearing about it, doesn't mean he's not dating. Yup, Phillippe has managed to rack up a pretty impressive list of A-List women that he's rumored to have dated (or at least have a fling with). Not super surprising, considering those baby blues of his.

Though his daughters Ava Phillipe and Kai Knapp are most likely his No. 1 ladies always and forever, the following group might have earned a place in his heart at one point or another, however brief it might have been.
