Reese Witherspoon: Robert Pattison is Dirty!

Reese Witherspoon is definitely fond of her "Water for Elephants" co-star Robert Pattinson , but that’s not to say she didn’t find his on-set grooming habits, well, questionable.

The newlywed actress said this while chatting with Entertainment Weekly: “It’s a boy thing, right? To have dirty fingernails and hair. And his clothes were dirty all the time.”

However, Reese 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 said.

In the film, out in theaters April 22, the stars’ characters, Jacob and Marlena, become entwined in a tragic love triangle.
