Water for Elephants cast members were spotted roaming around the set of the film today (July 16) dressed in period costumes including a racy, sating number on Reese Withersoon as they filmed in Los Angeles.
While not texting on his new iPhone, Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson courteously held the door for his Oscar winning cast-mate Christoph Waltz despite having a hand injury as they left the set on the last day all together as a team.
Meanwhile, Rob is opening up about some of the downfalls of playing a character in a circus-themed movie. Problem number one? Getting bitten by a lion.
“Almost every day I’m working with an exotic animal… It’s insane, like I got bitten on the arm by a lion with no teeth,” he says. “They were like, ‘It’s fine, he does it all the time’. A nd I was like, ‘Erm, OK…’ But they had to get him to do it harder, because he was being so gentle and just licking my arm.”
While Rob had to fend off the lion on his own, he got some fan help when the paparazzi got in the way of filming one day.
“Out of the blue, fans, that were waiting for autographs, had enough and circled around the paparazzi,” he recounts. “Teens made big guys run away. It was unreal! I was pleased.”
