And about his GF Kristen Stewart?
"[Rob] is sweet and loving and has the nicest family. Kristen (Stewart, Pattinson's girlfriend) is really sweet, too. He's a very sensitive soul. He worked really hard. He looks great in the movie, too."
Can't say we're surprised that K.Stew made sneaky set visits. After all, Water For Elephants was filmed mostly in L.A., and this was when Robsten had that love nest of theirs.
Add this to the growing list of set visits between the two!
Pshhh! And haters still try to say this is a showmance.
But back to Reese, whose likeability has jumped up a lot in our book. It turns out she was a Twi-hard before working with Rob:
"I really liked them, me and all my 30-year-old friends! I love the books."
Donna Freydkin, who interviewed Witherspoon for USA Today, joked that it must be written in her contract to have hunky costars.
"I do. How did you find that out? Someone's gotta do it. It's like America's Test Kitchen, but for making out with hot costars. I do it for the girls. I love my job. They're all really good guys. And I know all their girlfriends," she smiles.
Can't say we disagree, babe!
