Robert Pattinson and Water for Elephants in Total Film

I wonder if the Elephants are as pleased to work with Rob? hehe I bet they are!

From Total Film mag­a­zine (August 2010)

“I want to work with an ele­phant,” says Robert Pat­tin­son, on the Cal­i­for­nia set of cir­cus romance ‘Water For Ele­phants’. Why the hell not? Adapted from Sara Gruen’s depression-era best­seller, Pat­tin­son plays a young vet, Jacob, who runs away to join a trav­el­ing cir­cus after his par­ents are killed. There he falls in love with beau­ti­ful eques­trian Mar­lena (Reese With­er­spoon) and befriends untrain­able pachy­derm Rosie. ‘Inglou­ri­ous Bas­terd’ Oscar win­ner Christoph Waltz – who’s fast estab­lish­ing him­self as bad­die de jour – rounds out the cast as abu­sive, Dumbo-bothering bas­tard August Rosen­bluth, in what Waltz calls “a sen­sa­tional adap­ta­tion”, with Fran­cis Lawrence (‘I Am Leg­end’) on direct­ing duties. Nev­er­mind the ele­phants, then, what’s it like work­ing with Waltz? “He’s ter­ri­fy­ing!” smiles Pat­tin­son. We sus­pected as much.
