Robert Pattinson on Reese Witherspoon: From mother to lover

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon were all giggles and smiles during the “Water for Elephants” press junket in Santa Monica this weekend. The duo even broke away from the adoring press corps to present a trophy at last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

But it was during a revelatory interview with Access Hollywood that the actors, who engage in a steamy love affair in Francis Lawrence’s “Elephants” adaptation, reveal that they once shared a different bond on screen that might creep some people out.

“Reese played my grandmother,” Pattinson revealed.

“It was bad enough — I played his mother in a movie,” Witherspoon clarified, with a laugh.

Apparently RPatz had a small part in Witherspoon’s period drama “Vanity Fair,” for director Mira Nair, but was cut from the final film.

“I got cut out of it and she looked like a 15-year-old at the time,” Pattinson told Access Hollywood. “I didn’t understand what was going on at the time while we were shooting it, and then I was invited to the premiere and I was cut out of it.”

He won’t be cut out of “Water for Elephants.” In fact, he’ll dominate practically every scene when the torrid literary adaptation reaches theaters on April 22. Look for it then.
