Reese Witherspoon's Heartbreaking Marriage Inspired Her To Help Robert Pattinson

4 August 2012

After he was humiliated and betrayed by the person he loved most, Robert Pattinson seeked help from his Water For Elephants co-star Reese Witherspoon. And now it has emerged that the actress’ own cheating agony inspired her to help a devastated R-Patz get through his high-profile split.

Reese, 36, was heartbroken when her first marriage to Cruel Intentions co-star Ryan Philippe ended amid rumours he had been unfaithful, and when it was revealed that Kristen Stewart had cheated on our beloved R-Patz with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, she only wanted to help her friend get through the traumatic time.

And being a mum of two could only help as she was eager to offer Rob, 26, a place to stay whilst he gets over his heartache of his Twilight co-star and girlfriend’s unexpected cheating.

A source said: “Reese knows what it’s like to be on display when your heart is broken, so she felt like opening up her home to Rob was the right thing to do,’’ The Daily Record reports.

The Cosmopolis actor is staying at Witherspoon’s £3m ranch in Ojai, California, with her husband Jim Toth, and is said to have offered her home as a refuge after Pattinson moved out of the house he shared with K.Stew.

The pair are said to be good pals after playing lovers in the film Water For Elephants.

At least someone's looking after him!
