Ryan Phillippe plays a conniving playboy in his new movie The Lincln Lawyer, accused of attempted murder.
The actor admits he did have one thing in common with his evil character-they’re both mama’s boys. Phillippe explains to iVillage,”When I first started my career as an actor it would be (my mom) and I driving (to auditions) in a minivan, so we spent a lot of time together in the car.”
“I’m not necessarily a mama’s boy anymore, but I think I was at one point.”
The 38-year-old actor added, “I love playing bad.”
“I don’t know what that says about me, but it’s so much fun to be the villain.”
The crime drama will also include Matthew McConaughey and hits theaters March 18.
