Robert Pattinson is looking to escape the world for a while, and one of his gorgeous former costars is helping him do it.
Both People and Us Weekly are reporting that Pattinson, 26, is currently holed up at his good friend (and Water for Elephants costar) Reese Witherspoon's Ojai, Calif., country estate (the same one where she married Jim Toth). He's been there -- far away from prying paparazzi -- ever since news broke that his girlfriend of three-plus years Kristen Stewart cheated on him with her very married Snow White & the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Sources tell Us that the actor is "a total mess" and is "questioning everything."
From the sound of things, Stewart, 22, isn't doing much better. Following the publication of photos showing the Twilight starlet canoodling with Sanders, she and Pattinson have not been on speaking terms. But sources close to Us are saying that Stewart is "inconsolable" and has been trying to get in contact with Pattinson through texts and phone calls.
"She's dying to save the relationship," a Stewart source says. "It's the only thing she cares about."
Don't expect Pattinson to come out of hiding any time soon, though. He's reportedly canceled a press appearance to promote David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, likely to avoid prying questions about his quickly disintegrating relationship. We wouldn't be surprised if he ends up pulling out of his scheduled VMAs appearance as well, where he's supposed to present an award alongside Stewart.
Meanwhile, People is trying to get to the source of Stewart's reason for cheating.
"There was no sign that either of them was unhappy," a source tells the magazine. "He would have done anything for her."
Adds the insider: "Telling Robert was the worst thing she's ever had to do."
