Reese Witherspoon and Rob Pattinson have definite chemistry.

PHOTOS: How Reese's style has evolved

In a just-released still from the upcoming film Water for Elephants, Pattinson, 24, leans in for a passionate kiss; in another shot, he sensually caresses the small of Witherspoon's bare back.

"I'm not gonna lie. He's a very, very handsome man," Witherspoon raved of Pattinson in December. "He's sweet and loving and has the nicest family...He's a very sensitive soul."

(Witherspoon, 34, previously costarred with the Twilight star in 2004's Vanity Fair.)

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, Water for Elephants may be Pattinson's best performance to date. "He worked really hard," Witherspoon said. "He looks great in the movie, too."
