Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon & An Elephant At Sydney ‘WFE’ Photocall [PHOTOS]

This morning Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon hosted a press conference for Water For Elephants at Sydney’s Luna Park, an amusement park next to the harbor.

The pair, who were dressed casually, were joined by the film’s director Francis Lawrence but were then surprised as they were joined by a mystery guest – an Indian elephant.

Like any animal, they have no modesty, so they tend to relive themselves whenever they please. The elephant did just that, and Rob and Reese subsequently got a case of the giggles.

While filming Water For Elephants, the only animal Rob had a problem with was a zebra. During his appearance on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show, the actor recalled how the animal had charged at the cast – prompting him to move out of its way, forgetting about his co-star Reese Witherspoon.

The story continues…

“Zebras are impossible to tame,” he said. “One of them pulled away and ran towards me and I got out of the way.

He further stated: “Afterwards everyone thought I was a pussy getting out of the way, and apparently Christoph Waltz had got in front of Reese and other actresses and protected them.”

Haha! I love that story. I would have been scared too!
