Witherspoon's wedded bliss!

Reese Witherspoon hit NYC on Sunday alongside Robert Pattinson for the premiere of Water for Elephants. It was the star's first red carpet walk since tying the knot with CAA agent Jim Toth at her ranch in Ojai, Calif. in late March.

How is just-married life treating the Oscar winner, 35?

"It feels great!" Witherspoon gushed to Us Weekly.

The actress recently returned from her honeymoon in Belize with Toth, 40; her kids with ex Ryan Phillippe, Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, also came along.

Balancing her brand-new married life with promotional duties is just fine, she said. "Everything's just great!"

Plus, she added, film premieres get her closer to other VIPs in her life. "This is an opportunity to really connect with the fans," Witherspoon said. "It's a nice opportunity for me to connect with the people who actually go and see the movies."

She and costar Pattinson, 24, gave each other warm hugs at the premiere — but Witherspoon joked that she still hasn't gotten a gift from her sexy costar. "Not yet! And I am waiting!" she joshed. "Tick Tock! You can tell him I am waiting."

The next morning, Witherspoon opened up some more about her nuptials — and fan support — on Good Morning America.

"[The wedding] was a really nice day," Witherspoon told Robin Roberts of the rustic, chic bash. Plus, her fans approve of her new guy. "I had a whole chat with a guy named George yesterday [in NYC]..He said.."I like your husband. I think this guy is a good guy.' I said, 'Thank you George… I feel the same way!'"

"It's nice when people support you," she added. "It feels really good to be loved … so much love coming at you from different places."
