Reese Witherspoon brought her Southern hospitality all the way to California.

The 36-year-old pregnant star let her Water for Elephants costar Robert Pattinson crash at her Ojai estate last week, a source confirms to E! News. The Twilight hunk is, however,  "gone now" from Witherspoon's tranquil vacation home. (She let Elle Décor, who has the full story on her lovely estate, take a glimpse inside her home in the mag's latest issue.)

Pattinson, 26, presumably wanted a calm, private getaway following the news of Kristen Stewart's "momentary indiscretion" with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. Witherspoon's sprawling, seven-acre ranch—complete with a swimming pool, horse barn and guest cottage—probably provided just that.

But don't think Pattinson plans to hide out and then shirk his professional obligations due to a broken heart. A report yesterday claimed the actor had ditched a press appearance for Cosmopolis, but Pattinson's rep told E! News he hasn't canceled any of his commitments.

"Cosmopolis is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting," the rep said in a statement. "No confirmed engagements have been canceled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate."

We're glad Rob has a pal like Reese to help him through the tough times.
