This page describes the disguise Phillippe wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well.

When Ryan Phillippe wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Ryan Phillippe wants, Ryan Phillippe usually gets.
