He was cast in the 1997 horror film, I Know What You Did Last Summer, which co-starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze, Jr.
The film was a success, and led to Phillippe gaining wider renown and being cast in a few more high-profile films, including 54 in 1998 opposite Neve Campbell, Salma Hayek and Mike Myers.
By June of that year, reporters had gone from singing its praise as “the future of the internet” to writing its obituary (“Cause of death: penises”).
The frenzy around it died as numbers began to decline from the tens of thousands to mere thousands, and coverage waned.
The first time “Hung.,” a 24-year-old from the UK, used Chatroulette to masturbate in front of a stranger, he was in college, late in his teens or perhaps early in his 20s.
He doesn’t have many details to share about the experience, besides a few recalled feelings. “It was hot, it always is when you finally find someone.” Hung., whose profile photo is an upward angle shot of a large penis, says he doesn’t use the site for masturbation “really often.” When he does, he says it’s rare to find women who are up for participating.
He also has a daughter from a relationship with actress Alexis Knapp.
Phillippe's acting career began after being signed to Cathy Parker Management in Voorhees, New Jersey.
It’s been eight years since the site’s supposed death, but a small community persists.
Filming for the movie took place in South Africa, beginning in March 2009.
Phillippe described the filming process as "really run-and-gun.
“A lot of women on here know what it’s about,” a man from Ireland told me.
Many people told me they often move their conversations to Skype for a more sturdy sexual relationship if they find a partner they like.
Phillippe can also be seen in the Marcy Playground music video "Comin' Up From Behind", which appears on the film's soundtrack.
