Reese Witherspoon gushes about her Water for Elephants co-star, Robert Pattinson.
Though she’s engaged to Jim Toth, Witherspoon, 34, told Entertainment Tonight about her admiration for Pattinson, 24, saying, “I am so lucky. He’s so amazing and wonderful and sweet and just the nicest guy too, so you can just add that to the soup.”
In Water for Elephants, Witherspoon and Pattinson play lovers in a triangle between them and Witherspoon’s onscreen husband.
Witherspoon describes her off screen relationship with Pattinson as a humorous one. “We’ll probably just laugh the whole time, because all we do is just laugh and joke around,” she said.
“I mean, he’s just so good looking and he’s a really nice person,” Witherspoon added.
This isn’t the first time the two actors have been in a film together. Pattinson was supposed to play Witherspoon’s son in Vanity Fair, but that was cut from the film.
Witherspoon recalls that she thought her then onscreen son was “so good looking.”
