R Pattz Nearly Hurt In Elephant Disaster
On the set of his new movie…
Monday, September 6, 2010 - 11:12
Robert Pattinson was nearly injured when an elephant sat on him as he filmed his new movie, it’s claimed.
The Twilight actor is currently shooting Water For Elephants, a circus based flick which will also star Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz.
And according to the (often not very reliable) National Enquirer magazine disaster nearly struck on the set whilst the British hunk was on top of an elephant called Rosie.
A source told them: “The script called for the elephant to step forward while swinging her trunk from side to side, but Rosie got her signals mixed up. Instead, she sat down on her big butt, lifted her front legs - then rolled over.
“Before anyone could react, Robert slid right down the elephant's back.
“It could have been a disaster if she'd rolled over on him - but he got lucky, landing face first in a pile of dirt and mud. He was filthy, but unharmed.”
Water For Elephants is scheduled for release in April 2011.
