Reese Witherspoon gushed and blushed over her "sexy" co-star in 'Water for Elephants' on Sunday, telling PopEater at the big NYC premiere that she didn't care that Robert Pattinson was under the weather when they filmed their sex scene together.

"Well so many people are saying 'Oh, well you guys had this sex scene and he was sick.' And I'm like even if this guy's sick, I'm so lucky, I can't even tell you!" the radiant and newly married Reese told us on the red carpet. "Not only is he super sexy and obviously incredibly handsome, but he's a really lovely, nice person."
