Reese Witherspoon - Reese Witherspoon Is 'Consolation Prize' At Premiere

Reese Witherspoon admitted she was a "consolation prize" for fans who wanted to see Robert Pattinson at the world premiere of 'Water for Elephants' last night (17.04.11).

The Oscar-winning actress stars alongside the 'Twilight' actor in the new movie and as hoards of female admirers waited to catch a glimpse of their heartthrob, Reese knew they weren't waiting for her.

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!"

However, while she accepts Robert was more popular than her at the event, she admits it was amazing to interact with all the fans on the red carpet.

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."

Fans were almost left disappointed as Robert, 24, nearly didn't make it because he was filming the final scenes for 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' in Vancouver, Canada.

The British heartthrob - who was greeted by hordes of screaming female fans - said: "It was a mad rush to get here."

Other stars to attend the premiere included Robert and Reese's fellow co-stars Christoph Waltz and Hal Holbrook.
