Reese Witherspoon reportedly asked Robert Pattinson to stay at her ranch when she heard Kristen Stewart has cheated on him.
Apparently Reese gave him a place to stay and a shoulder to cry on because she knows what it's like to be cheated on.
A source told website RadarOnline: ''Reese went through a very public cheating scandal herself when Ryan Phillippe went outside their marriage and hooked up with Abbie Cornish, so her first thought when she heard about Kristen and Rob was to reach out to him and make sure he was okay.
''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.''
The Water For Elephants actress is currently pregnant with her third child and is apparently making sure to give Robert some space.
The insider said: ''She's not trying to lead Rob one way or the other regarding his future with Kristen.
''Reese and her husband [Jim Toth] are just giving Rob the space he needs and a place to stay that's far away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi.''
On July 24 intimate photos surfaced of Kristen with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders and she issued a statement the next day admitting to the affair.
She said: ''I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.''
