Is a friend in need a friend indeed? It appears so – Reese Witherspoon is said to have asked Robert Pattinson to stay at her ranch after hearing that his girlfriend and sometime co-star Kristen Stewart has cheated on him with married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
According to sources, Reese offered the hunky star of Twilight “a shoulder to cry on” because she knows what it’s ike to be cheated on.
A source told website RadarOnline: “Reese went through a very public cheating scandal herself when Ryan Phillippe went outside their marriage and hooked up with Abbie Cornish, so her first thought when she heard about Kristen and Rob was to reach out to him and make sure he was okay.
“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 Water For Elephants actress is currently pregnant with her third child and is looking to help give Robert the space he needs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi. The insider said: “She’s not trying to lead Rob one way or the other regarding his future with Kristen.”
