God Bless You Ryan !! Keep The Faith !! I am not very religious, but I am Praying for you !! You did a lot for Farrah !! God Bless Redmond Too !!!

I`m pretty sure he dated Angelica Huston during one of her splits from Jack. Also, from listening to Tatum talk about how much she was influenced by Bianca Jagger, I think Ryan had more than an "encounter" with her.
