Reese Prepares to Join Robert Pattinson at the Circus

Reese Witherspoon chatted with a friend yesterday as she headed into LA's Cirque School, which offers lessons in a variety of circus arts. Those techniques will come in handy for Reese as she gets ready to film Water for Elephants, a film about a veterinary student who runs away to join a traveling circus, with Christoph Waltz and Robert Pattinson. Their movie isn't scheduled to start shooting until May, so Reese has a little more time to polish up her own skills and spend some of her downtime sharing more romantic walks with boyfriend Jim Toth.
