Did Reese Witherspoon Really Call Rob Pattinson Love Scenes ‘Disgusting’?

Truth rating: 1

By Michael Lewittes



“Reese hated love scenes with Robert!” screams a headline from In Touch, claiming that Reese Witherspoon said her Water For Elephants romantic scenes with Robert Pattinson were “disgusting.”

According to the tabloid, Witherspoon said in an interview, “Rob had the most hideous, horrible cold of any co-star I’ve ever had to do a love scene with ever in my entire life. He was literally snorting and snotting through every second of it – and it was not appealing.”

The Oscar winner supposedly continued, “I’m going to say it’s a little bit of a downer. I was a little disappointed. It wasn’t sexy.”

That doesn’t sound like the gracious actress we know…

Maybe because she never said that.

A rep for Witherspoon tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “This is completely not true and not what she said.”

“The truth is that Rob was sick during the scene and Reese was laughing that he was so sick and it wasn’t very romantic,” the rep explains. “They joked about it together at the [press] junket.”

The twisting of Witherspoon’s words makes us feel sort of sick.
