First Images Of Reese Witherspoon In ‘Water For Elephants’

As Reese Witherspoon wraps up her shooting on This Means War in Vancouver with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, she’ll soon be gearing up for the promotional trail for Water For Elephants, the movie she stars in with Robert Pattinson and Christopher Waltz.

The first photos from the campaign for the film, based on the novel of the same title, have hit the web in a new poster for a re-release of the book. I read the novel and it was decent and if you haven’t I suggest you pick up a copy. The period drama revolves around a young veterinary student (Pattinson) and his experiences caring for the animals in a traveling circus during the early years of the Great Depression when he meets the already married performer played by Witherspoon.

But still hard at work on her current film – and yes, by hard at work I mean making out with Chris Pine. Tough job. Later she, Pine and Hardy fillmed a high-speed chase on a flat-bed truck.

During breaks, Reese shopped at the discount Army & Navy store and Hardy initiated some horseplay with the crew.

Water for Elephants opens on tax day, April 15, 2011.
