PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Ryan Phillippe is a big Eagles fan. Growing up in Delaware, Phillippe was born and raised an Eagles fan, and stays that way, as he points out in his “Celebrity Corner” essay on the Philadelphia Eagles official website.

Phillippe, who you may know from starring roles in I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Cruel Intentions, or his relationship with now ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, uses a pseudonym when he stays in hotels. He uses that opportunity to pay tribute to a former Eagles player.

“I was, and still am, such a huge fan of the defense back from the 1980s and 1990s,” Phillippe writes.  “In fact, when I stay at hotels now I use the pseudonym “Jerome Brown.” I get packages sent to me as “Jerome Brown.” I’ve done that for a long, long time.”

Brown, a two time Pro Bowl defensive tackle with the Eagles, passed away in 1992 in tragic car accident.

Phillippe, 39 years old, has such an affinity for that era of Eagles football, he’s raising his son to love it as well.

“I’m constantly reminded of my love for the Eagles and for that era,” Phillippe writes. “My son, Deacon, has been playing a lot of Madden 25 and he went and got Randall Cunningham and he’s playing Randall with the current Eagles. Deacon always wants to hear stories about Randall, so anything I can tell him he absolutely loves.”
