One dedicated fan waited outside the New York City premiere of Water For Elephants for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to emerge together. And they did. Ohhh, they did! Because we’re not used to seeing Pattinson and Stewart showing any sort of public PDA, we got all excited to see them all touchy-feeling (hand-holding and arm-touching were involved). It was really cute, actually. You hear stories about the two being a couple, but you don’t believe it until you see it. Believe it, friends.
Pattinson joined co-star Reese Witherspoon earlier in the evening on the red carpet, and the two talked about devoted fans who showed up despite the rain. According to Popeater, Witherspoon was fully aware that she played second bananas to Pattinson where the devotees are concerned. “Let’s not kid ourselves,” Witherspoon joked. “They like me. I’m OK. I’m a consolation prize.” Witherspoon was happy to hand over the attention to a Gucci-clad Pattinson, but that didn’t stop her from looking delightful on the red carpet in a Jason Wu dress and Christian Louboutin heels.
Also on the red carpet were Christoph Waltz, Nicole Murphy, Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, Sara Gruen, Hal Holbrook, Julia Stiles, Gina Gershon, James Lipton, Michael Strathan, Max Carver, Mark Provinelli, and Paul Schneider.
