Ryan McCartan broke hearts everywhere when he announced that his engagement with Dove Cameron had been called off by the actress. Still, the actor continues to have so much love and respect for the Disney Channel star that when E! News asked him about her he had nothing but the nicest things to say about her.
When the reporter asked him how he was doing since the split at the premiere of his new movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show, he said:
"I'm good. I love her to death. There's a lot of love there. You know, she made a decision that—because I love her—I have to respect. She was there for me while we were filming this movie—we were still together—so I hope she's feeling this energy right now, because it's all happening. Here we are!"
Aww! It would have been great to see the couple walk this red carpet together so that they can celebrate the guy's new project. We do admire that Ryan respected Dove's decision and that he said they are still friends.
