Reese Witherspoon Raves About ‘Handsome’ Co-Star Robert Pattinson

Despite her status in the upper echelons of show biz, Reese Witherspoon has at least one thing in common with millions of women throughout the world: She thinks Robert Pattinson is, like, totally dreamy.

The Walk the Line beauty, who co-stars with the Twilight heartthrob in the upcoming period drama Water for Elephants, recently rhapsodized to USA Today about R-Pattz’s aesthetic charms:

“I’m not gonna lie. He’s a very, very handsome man.”

Fear not, though; despite her obvious appreciation for Pattinson’s scruffy good looks, Witherspoon has no intentions of trying to lure him away from his beloved Kristen Stewart. For one thing, she totally has a boyfriend right now. And for another, she thinks Stewart is pretty okay too:

“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.”
