Robert Pattinson has a new fan. A-list actress Reese Witherspoon is in a swoon over her “Water for Elephants” co-star. She gushes in a new interview that the Twilight actor is a “very handsome man.”
Rob has often been criticized for wearing the same clothes and for body odor from lack of bathing, but he never fails to draw raves from his leading ladies.
Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, of course, is widely believed to be his on-screen lover as Bella Swan, and off-screen lover as well.
Emilie de Ravin, Rob’s co-star in “Remember Me,” was also captivated by his good looks and winning personality.
Likewise, Witherspoon, who talked to USA Today about filming with Rob in “Water For Elephants.”
“I’m not gonna lie. He’s a very, very handsome man,” she said.
“He’s sweet and loving and has the nicest family. Kristen is really sweet, too. He’s a very sensitive soul. He worked really hard. He looks great in the movie, too,” she said.
Witherspoon has starred alongside Meryl Streep, Alan Arkin, Peter Sarsgaard, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson during the course of her career. So she speaks with authority.
In the film, Witherspoon plays a circus performer who is married to a brutish animal trainer.
Rob plays a veterinarian who joins the circus and ultimately clashes with the husband as he falls for Reese’s character.
“The fervor and madness and girls waiting at 5 a.m. on a set in the middle of nowhere just to see him,” says Witherspoon, of their shoot.
