R-Pattz & Reese Talk Water For Elephants!
EXCLUSIVE | MTV News sat down with the pair to discuss their new flick...
Reese Witherspoon have spoken exclusively toWater For Elephants.
R-Pattz, known for his love-sick demeanour as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga, could barely contain his emotions when it came to talking about working with Tai the elephant in his latest role.
The 24-year old told us it was the only time he’s ever cried when another actor or actress finished on the set, stating: “I felt more upset when the elephant wrapped than anyone on any movie I’ve ever done!"
He added: "It was horrible. And the trainer was like 'You can come and visit whenever you want.' And I was like 'Don’t do this to me!! There’s people around!'”
However, Rob clearly only had enough love for one woman - even if she was an elephant - admitting that he was ill when shooting love scenes with co-star Reese Witherspoon and claiming he seems to always be poorly during romantic scenes.
It was a shame for Reese, who told us no one had to twist her arm to get involved in a movie starring opposite Mr. Pattinson.
Despite not having much luck with R-Pattz, Witherspoon also found herself heavily captivated by the elephant, saying: “It’s really hard to smuggle an elephant.”
Reese spent five months working on the stunts and tricks with the elephant for the film, while also attempting numerous tricks involving the horses, but admitted to requiring some extra help from a stunt double as she kept falling off!
She revealed: “They were trying to get me to do this sort of Roman riding where I was standing on two horses at once, and there’s a reason it’s not in the movie 'cause I could never pull it off!”
Between the circus tricks and the adorable elephant, there is of course the love triangle; a topic which is swiftly gaining R-Pattz quite a reputation.
Fortunately for Kristen Stewart, this is just something that is reoccurring in his movies, and Robert stars alongside Christoph Waltz in his fight to steal Reese Witherspoon’s heart.
Rob joked: “It’s just an ego trip for me. That’s why I do them. I’ve always gotta win at the end.”
