Ginnifer Goodwin and Chris Klein broke up

Two people who you may only marginally care about or have any interest in have broken up. Big Love star Ginnifer Goodwin, 30, and douche Chris Klein, 29, called it quits after two years. Someone confirmed the news to People, and I would bet it was Goodwin, who finally realized she could do better:

A Goodwin pal tells PEOPLE that the split was mutual and amicable. “They realized they wanted different things,” says the friend. “In the long run, the relationship wasn’t going to work.”

With a busy winter ahead for Goodwin, 30, who returns to HBO’s Big Love in January and stars in He’s Just Not That Into You, opening in February, the actress plans to enjoy the single life for the time being, says her friend: “She’s not interested in dating anyone just yet.”

Klein, 29, is also busy with work, returning to big screen in Street Fighter in February.

Chris Klein had an interview with Elle published in late 2005 which reads like a parody of something an obnoxious high school quarterback would say before losing his girlfriend to a romantic nerd in a teen movie. It’s apparently legitimate, though, and makes you hope he was just talking crap and wasn’t serious:

ELLE: Are you cool with it if a woman you like gains a few pounds?

CK: I’m not tolerant of that at all.

ELLE: So do you tell them to lose weight?

CK: When a woman isn’t feeling good about herself and you combine that with her period, eventually she’ll ask you if you like her body. You have to say no.

ELLE: Don’t you think they’re just looking for you to say, “You look beautiful to me, honey.”

CK: If they do, it’s placating. I don’t placate.

As for his thoughts on marriage, Klein compared it to getting sucker punched:

ELLE: If you had to commit to the number of women you’d like to sleep with before you marry, how many would it be?

CK: I think that for every dude the number is massive, and it just takes that one chick to punch you in the face, and all of a sudden you’re walking down the aisle, whether you like it or not.

What kind of self esteem does a woman have to have to stick around for two years of that? I guess we know why Katie Holmes could think Tom Cruise is so “amazing” after having to deal with that kind of misogyny.

There’s one consolation – Klein is losing his hair and maybe along with it his manufactured mojo, too. A lot of guys gain hotness when balding sets in by working with it and shaving their heads. Klein is clinging to the past by growing his thinning hair long, though, and is gradually losing what little appeal he did have before he opened his mouth.

    He looks like Ben Affleck’s old lady,,that is all.

  2. jessiee says:

    eww. he’s nasty.

  3. geronimo says:

    Ugh. His nasty interior is now competing with his equally nasty exterior. He looks like some skeevy down-on-his-luck pimp. What a skank.

  4. Maya says:

    Ginnifer is so cute looking and he’s just nasty looking… I hope she finds someone nicer looking AND a decent guy!

  5. Tess says:

    All that plus a perky little man boob.

    That boy’s a winner.

  6. Jessica says:

    He reminds me of Pee Wee Herman.

  7. Embee says:

    Way to go Ginnifer! You’re lovely!

  8. Kaiser says:

    Oh, Jesus. I had no idea he was such a scumbag. *barf*

    Ginnifer could do a lot better. She’s as cute as can be.

  9. Clare says:

    I never liked his “appeal” to begin with! Bleh!
    Agree Jessica, he is Pee Wee Herman-ish.

    This Ginnifer Goodwin is reminiscent of an upgraded old Katie Holmes.

  10. Kelly says:

    I hope Gennifer (or whoever his next gf is) doesn’t “placate” him either, and tells him the truth about that awful hair.

  11. SeVen says:

    Wow… excuse me whilst i pick me jaw off the floor. i used to think he was a cutie, back in the 90s…and inside some part of me is really hoping he was being sarcastic in those quotes but i really doubt it… wow…. hold on my jaw just fell again, damn thing. He does look like Peewee herman…. got that thinning child toucher hair going on … on a positive note, if Lord of the Rings ever goes Broadway – Chris can play Gollum

  12. Syko says:

    I never did think he was attractive, and the thinning hair/combover is not helping. But now that I’ve read these pearls of wisdom from his pale feminine lips, he makes me want to puke.

    Katie Holmes has the WORST taste in men!

  13. nemo2000 says:

    WOW he is suck a jerk!!!!!!

  14. Mairead says:

    Chris, you look like a greasy gimp. I don’t “placate” either.

    (has anyone ever noticed that those who are so fond of “being honest” “being genuine” and “telling it like it is” or indeed “not placating” are never that grateful when the favour is returned? Funny that.)

  15. mecca says:

    that interview had to be a spoof in elle mag. however, it was not funny regardless.

  16. Anna says:

    My God he is gross – what a prick. Well I tell you something Chris there is nothing attractive about your greasy, thinning hair, pale girly lips, perky nipples and bad fashion sense. I bet you have bad breath too. Yuk, yuk, yuk. 😡 😡 😡

  17. Leandra says:

    Why would anyone think this greasy scumball is the father of Suri Cruise? There’s not one shred of likeness between that cute little girl and Chris Klein. His hair is so greasy it’s hanging in strings.

  18. I Choose Me says:

    Is it me or did he get himself another Katie Holmes? I’m not saying Ginnifer looks like Katie (she’s actually prettier in my opinion) but he definitely seems to have a type. As for him, he used to be cute what the heck happened?

    Edit: Didn’t see Clare’s post. But now I know for sure it’s not just me. 🙂

    Re-edit: I just read the excerpts from Crisco’s interview. I would dearly love to take his example about not placating, by calling him a fuckwit to his face.

  19. Codzilla says:

    His hair is tragic. 😯

  20. vdantev says:

    and they would be- who?

  21. Kristin says:

    Sad. I just saw AP for the first time and that was the first thing I had seen him in. He seemed so nice in that.

  22. Mel-Tang says:

    Leandra, he’s NOT Suri’s dad. Josh Hartnett is!! lol

  23. devilgirl says:

    He looks like a used car salesman these days.

  24. Aspen says:

    Wow…what an oinker.

  25. Tina says:

    At least the guy’s honest about being a disgusting misogynist. 🙄 He and Mayer should meet up.

    Seriously though, I had an ex-boyfriend who was a lot like Klein. The kind of man who always put you down and made you feel ugly because of a few extra pounds or a pimple, or what-not. Congrats to Ginnifer for getting out of that relationship and good riddens to Chris Klein.

  26. So . . . is he suffering from period bloat in that picture, or is he really that puffy?

    I’d love to go on a blind date with him (blind being the operative word) and tell him what I think of his greasy combover. I shan’t placate to his ego, either.

  27. cari says:

    Try getting your teeth fixed, chris. Maybe some whitening too. Your mysoginistic ass is making Tommygirl look sane.

  28. Kelly says:

    LOL That is so true! He is a douche who would cut his geasy thinning hair. I honestly can’t believe Ginnifer stayed with him that long!

  29. Kelly says:

    oops I meant greasy!

  30. tom says:

    whoa. dude looks busted. still have no idea how he gets hot chicks. if buddy is gonna be so unforgiving about others’ physical shortcomings, he better make sure he’s got himself covered on that front first. damn.
