“I am so lucky,” Reese Witherspoon gushed in reference to her love scenes with Robert Pattinson in their upcoming movie Water for Elephants. “He’s so amazing and wonderful and sweet and just the nicest guy too, so you can just add that to the soup.”
She continued: “I mean, he’s just so good looking and he’s a really nice person.”
In Water for Elephants, which arrives in theaters on April 22, 2011 Reese, 34, and Rob, 24, play lovers involved in a triangle that develops between their characters and Reese’s onscreen husband. This is not the first film they’ve been in together – Rob had a part as Reese’s son in Vanity Fair only it ended up on the cutting room floor. Still, Reese has some vivid memories of first seeing the actor.
“He was walking down this corridor and I turned to the director and I said, ‘That’s my son? He’s so good looking,’ ” she recalls. “I was like, ‘He’s so hot!’ “
Back in reality Reese is engaged to talent agent Jim Toth, 40, and Rob continues a low-key romance (showmance?) with Twilight costar Kristen Stewart.
