Reese Witherspoon: I'm a Consolation Prize

Robert Pattinson can't leave the house without being surrounded by at least a dozen bodyguards. And Reese Witherspoon knew this when she signed up for their latest movie 'Water for Elephants'.

But after realizing just how crazy his fans are about him, she admits she's just a "consolation prize" in the movie.

Speaking at the premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre, in New York City, she said: “Rob’s fans are very dedicated to him and they will turn out anywhere for him. I think I’m just the consolation prize for them!”

She said: "I think it's incredible because as movie actors we sort of work isolated and we don't get to see fans as often, so it's a nice experience to actually get to meet some of them and know they're excited for the film."

Rob almost didn't make it to the premiere because he was filming final scenes for 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' in Vancouver, Canada. But it's a good thing he did or else some of his psycho fans would have literally gone psycho.
