Actress marvels at the ‘fervor’ around her ‘Water for Elephants’ co-star.
Reese Witherspoon became a household name in the late ’90s with a string of scene-stealing turns in films like “Pleasantville” and “Election.” Around the same time, Leonardo DiCaprio was transforming from teen heartthrob to mature Hollywood A-lister, thanks to the nearly $2 billion success of “Titanic.”
Over a decade later, Witherspoon has been thinking back to that pop culture period. It’s the only way she can make sense of the overwhelming popularity of her “Water for Elephants” co-star Robert Pattinson.
“The only thing I can compare it to is when Leo was in ‘Titanic,’ ” she told MTV News while promoting her upcoming movie “How Do You Know.” “It was that kind of fervor about a person. The women lining up outside the set — it was just unbelievable — till 5 o’clock in the morning waiting to just glimpse him.”
The Tennessee set of “Water for Elephants” was basically no different than what happens when the “Twilight” vamp goes anywhere. As director Francis Lawrence told us in the fall, “[E]very day there would be, like, 50 people [staked out] … . [T]here would be people camped out in the hallways of our hotel. All day, all night long, it didn’t matter. People were there to try to catch a glimpse.”
Witherspoon, of course, got an up-close-and-personal glimpse of RPattz, and she was happy to report back to us: “He is extraordinarily attractive. I’m not gonna lie,” she said.
“Robert is such a great guy from a great family,” she explained. “That’s the thing that’s so funny. He’s not really this bad boy; he’s just a great guy and really worked hard on ‘Water for Elephants.’ He really worked long hours, long days. He looks totally different in the movie.”
She’s been married to Ryan Phillippe, had a long term relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, and now she’s with Hollywood agent Jim Toth. Reese Witherspoon reveals to ET how she gauges who is right for her relationship-wise.
“I’m old enough to know that I don’t know anything about love or relationships,” she disclosed. “I just try to go with my instincts and advise other people to do the same.”
The ‘How Do You Know’ star did admit that she has a way of determining whether her relationships are going to work out. “My friends are a barometer for my relationships,” she told ET. “I kind of look at them to reflect to me how I seem.”
In her upcoming movie written by Oscar winner James L. Brooks, Reese plays Lisa who is caught in a laughable love triangle. Lisa faces a difficult transition in her life, and jumps into a relationship with the self-centered Matty (played by Owen Wilson). Then she meets George (played by Paul Rudd), a man who’s facing financial ruin and a federal investigation for shady deals made by his father’s (Jack Nicholson) company. ‘How Do You Know’ hits theaters Dec. 17.

As posted about before, Reese was honoured with a Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame yesterday, and I now have more coverage from the event for you! There are literally hundreds of photos from this event, so while I work on sorting them out I have added the first batch of 32 photos to the Gallery for you. Reese looks her usual pretty and elegant self, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress from the Cruise 2011 collection, with red patent leather peep toe Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold and pave diamond bangle from Bochic. It’s really wonderful seeing her attend the event with her kids, and she made it a real family affair with her parents, brother, sister-in-law and nieces all accompanying her, alongside her boyfriend Jim Toth! Even making an appearance was her co-star from Legally Blonde, Bruiser Woods (well, it was probably a look-a-like 😉 )!
So, below is a link to our first lot of photos, and continue reading further down the post for articles, quotes and videos from the event.
Make sure you check back tomorrow for lots more gorgeous photos from this proud day for Reese!
Reese Witherspoon finds herself having to pick between two suitors — Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd — in her new romantic comedy, ‘How Do You Know,’ in theaters December 17. Who will she choose?
“You’re looking at people that are at points in their lives that could go any way,” says Reese.
The laughable love triangle from Oscar winner James L. Brooks finds Reese as Lisa, a woman facing a difficult transition in her life who jumps into a relationship with the self-centered Matty (played by Owen). Then she meets George (played by Paul), a man who’s facing financial ruin and a federal investigation for shady deals made by his father’s company.
“Lisa and Matty have been dating for a few weeks,” explains Reese. “George and Lisa meet and it turns out to be the most horrible date ever.”
“What would happen if two people were to meet on the worst day of their lives?” asks Paul.
As the relationships progress, the three characters get more tangled as they try to navigate their own choices.

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
