Reese Witherspoon: Robert Pattinson Is Dirty
Twentieth Century Fox

Reese Witherspoon is definitely fond of Water for Elephants costar Robert Pattinson, but that’s not to say she didn’t find his on-set grooming habits, well, questionable. “It’s a boy thing, right? To have dirty fingernails and hair,” the newlywed actress asked in a chat with Entertainment Weekly. “And his clothes were dirty all the time.” However, she can’t quite blame the Twilight star — after all, the movie takes place in a circus, a far cry from the damp, overcast Pacific Northwest setting of the supernatural series. “It was a nice escape for him to be tan and in the sun all the time instead of the vampire gear,” Witherspoon explained. In the film, out April 22, the stars’ characters, Jacob and Marlena, become entwined in a tragic love triangle. But before they hit theaters, the costars will hit Vegas — they’re presenting together Sunday at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Tell us: Do you prefer Pattinson tanned and rugged as Jacob, or pale and clean cut as Edward? –Kim Peiffer

Ok men are not always perfectly groomed. But thats ok..I dont mind that at all. He is still sexy whether he is dirty or squeaky clean. Shes just used to the Hollywood type she goes out with.

Yeah, I definitely don’t care if he’s super clean or rugged. He is so fine either way!

For real.. That’s not the first time that I hear these kinda comments about Rob..
I heard people from the cast saying that he stinks.. or, if you can’t understand what stink means.. Humm,, he does not take showers!
Ewwww Rob! Good thing that there’s no smell on the TV screen.. lol

I can’t believe that someone like Rob would not have hairdressers and costume managers that would not be taking care of all his grooming needs.

That’s nice to hear! Also, I prefer Robert Pattison either way, it doesn’t make a difference or matter to me how he looks!

Xelda on

He was dirty because the role required him to be dirty. People magazine taking quotes out of context, as per usual.
