Friends of the Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon revealed that her own share of cheating agony inspired her to reach out and help the devastated "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson.
The heartthrob actor is reported to be hiding out at the California ranch home that Witherspoon now with her second husband Jim Toth.
The "Water for Elephants" actress was also distraught just like Pattinson nowadays when her first marriage with actor Ryan Philippe ended amidst rumors that her husband had been unfaithful with her. Now, the mother of two became eager to help her former co-star and long-time friend Robert Pattinson who is currently heartbroken with the revelation of his girlfriend Kristen Stewart's affair with a married man.
"Reese knows what it's like to be on display when your heart is broken, so she felt like opening up her home to Rob was the right thing to do," a source shared.
According to reports, the 36-year old Witherspoon, who is helping Robert Pattinson go through his difficult break up with Kristen Stewart, was spotted taking a break to grab lunch with another friend last Friday in Los Angeles. The pregnant actress showed up with her friend and daughter at Hugo's restaurant in West Hollywood after being unseen for weeks in the public eye.
Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart has reportedly moved in with producer friend Giovanni Agnelli who stood up for Stewart and insisted through "Twitter" messages that the actress never slept with "Snow White and The Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. However, the posted messages were later on removed from his account.
"Kristen is acting like a heartbroken teenager," a source told Radar Online.
"She is crying her eyes out non-stop and does not want to communicate with anyone. She is beyond mortified and humiliated and she is also broken hearted. She says she truly loved Rob. She says he was her soul mate, but she blew it and now she is scared that she has lost him forever," the source further revealed.
After the cheating scandal of the actress spread out like wild fire, Stewart is now reported to be fearful that she will never win Robert Pattinson back again.
