Actress Reese Witherspoon credits her brother with helping her recover after her divorce from actor Ryan Phillippe. The 31-year-old was devastated after the couple split in 2006 and the ensuing media reports of Phillippe's infidelity - but says family, especially her older brother John, pulled her through. She says, "It's been a challenging year. But I feel I am so lucky to have a wonderful family and great friends. My brother calls me three times a day to see how I'm doing and that's a real stabilising element in my life."
