Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon: ACM Awards Duo

Posted Sunday April 3, 2011 10:01 PM GMT

Doing some promotion for their film “Water For Elephants,” Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson were spotted presenting an award at the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night (April 3).

The “Sweet Home Alabama” newlywed and the “New Moon” stud were both dressed to the nines as they took the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

When asked how he got Pattinson to take part in the show, CBS honcho Jack Sussman told press, “We invited him, he said yes. He’s bringing Reese Witherspoon and we’re putting on a big party…it’ll be a big weekend here in Vegas, have a lot of big acts, he’s going to join us…”

Once onstage, the pair started walking in the wrong direction before finding their way to the mic and getting into a little banter about filming in Tennessee and drinking moonshine.

Rob and Reese then proceeded forth with their bestowed presenter obligations by naming Miranda Lambert as Female Vocalist of the Year.
