Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon has struck the jackpot in her love-life both ON and OFF the big-screen, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
The divorced mom of two is romantically involved with her Hollywood agent boyfriend Jim Toth while she’s preparing to lock lips with Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson when Water For Elephants starts filming in California this week.
Pattinson will play the part of 21- year- old veterinary student Jacob Jankowski who joins a circus after his parents are killed in a car crash.
He falls in love with the show’s star performer Marlena (played by Witherspoon) who unfortunately is married to a schizophrenic animal trainer who runs the show.
Over the weekend Reese was spotted strolling around Ojai in California hand in hand with real-life beau Toth.
The lovebirds ate at local joint Ruben’s Burritos before heading back to Reese’s secluded farm nearby while her ex-husband of seven years Ryan Phillippe looked after their two kids Deacon and Ava back in Los Angeles.
Reese – who previously dated Hollywood hunk Jake Gyllenhaal – looked ‘happy and relaxed’ as she strolled around the hippy community of Ojai.
RadarOnline.com has learned that Pattinson has checked himself into a five star Los Angeles hotel as he prepares to take on the role alongside one of Hollywood’s leading ladies.
The British pin-up – who was spotted carrying a black hold-all with some scripts crammed in the back – has reportedly already had some informal meetings with Witherspoon and the movie’s director Francis Lawrence.
Inglorious Basterds star and Oscar winner Christopher Waltz will play Witherspoon’s evil animal trainer husband.
Let’s just hope Reese’s new boyfriend isn’t the jealous type once she starts to film her racy scenes with Rob!
