Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish Browse IKEA

Celebuzz / January 20, 2009

Celebrities appreciate a bargain, too.

Ryan Phillippe, 34, and companion (and Australian tour guide) Abbie Cornish, 26, were snapped browsing at their local IKEA.

Who doesn’t appreciate colorful furniture with eccentric touches priced at a bargain?

The quiet couple walked away with a $99 Wenge mirror. Gifting themselves with their own reflections at a bargain price!

Ryan and Abbie met and presumably hooked up on the set of Stop-Loss. The problem, at the time, was that Ryan was still involved with his wife, Reese Witherspoon.  But now Reese has moved on to a serious relationship with fellow actor (and former Phillippe buddy) Jake Gyllenhaal; so everybody is happy!  Even if Ryan and Abbie don’t look particularly celebratory at IKEA.

Abbie hid her blonde locks under a black winter cap, but Phillippe was his usual dour-looking self in an army cap and hoodie.

Luckily, he refrained from attacking anyone with a couch shaped like a fjord.

Phillippe’s next big role is in the bizarre-looking Franklyn, which seems to mix the superhero genre with religious persecution.

Phillippe covers up his angelic features with an odd mask in the fable.  The action splits between modern-day London and an alternate universe locale called Meanwhile City.

The mirror purchase may have been inspired by having to cover up his celebrity handsomeness during all that filming.
