Robert Pattinson‘s new movie “Water For Elephants” is scoring big with audiences, with 93 percent of Rotten Tomatoes viewers giving it a thumbs up, but how does it score amongst critics?
In the film adaptation from the book with the same name, Rob portrays a veterinarian who experiences a tragic loss and runs away, then finds himself working with a circus. After joining the rag tag team, Jacob finds himself falling in love with the ringleader’s wife, played by Hollywood’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon.
Renowned critic Roger Ebert gave the movie three stars, calling the film “endearingly old-fashioned,” and “a movie made of real people and plausible sets.” Meanwhile, the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes was not as kind as their viewers. Read more… Keep reading »
“Water for Elephants”‘
stars Reese Witherspoon
and Robert Pattinson
recently sat down for an “unscripted interview” with Moviefone in which they asked each other questions submitted by readers, as well as some of their own. You definitely get the sense that these two genuinely get along on and off the set, which hopefully bodes well for their on-screen chemistry. The first question for Rob: “Would you give it all up for love?” I completely agree with him that it’s kind of a ludicrous question when “it” is never defined. I would definitely give up a car for love, but not my ability to breathe. That would be pointless. Anyway, check out the full interview — Reese even swears! [Moviefone

“Rob possibly had the most hideous horrible cold of any co-star I’ve ever had to do a love scene with ever in my entire life. He was literally snorting and snotting through every second of it—and it was not appealing. I’m talking green, infectious, disgusting—I’m not kidding!”
—Reese Witherspoon reveals that even though everyone in Hollywood may want to make out with her “Water for Elephants” co-star, Robert Pattinson, her big sex scenes with him were all the way to disgusting. Way to kill the fantasy, Reese. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Soon, we will have enough images from the “Breaking Dawn” sex scene to make a flipbook. The scene apparently took Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart more than 12 hours to film and looks like it could be pretty spicy, at least judging from this image. One more for ya, after the jump. [Buzzfeed]
UPDATE: Sadly we had to take down the images because, uh, the movie studio did not authorize their release onto the interwebs. Keep reading »
Catherine Hardwicke—the director behind both “Twilight” and the new movie, “Red Riding Hood“—has an interesting method for casting her leads. She has them make out. “Starting with ‘Thirteen,’ my known technique is to cast the lead, then find someone with whom they have incredible chemistry,” she says. Last week, she explained to us that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had “electricity” the first time they met—in her kitchen, before moving into her bedroom to rehearse a kissing scene. “The same was true with Amanda [Seyfried in "Red Riding Hood"]. I wanted her to be on fire with the person,” Catherine said. Keep reading »
“[Kristen] felt connected to [Robert] from the first moment. That electricity, or love at first sight, or whatever it is … [I told Robert] ‘You’ve got to realize that Kristen is 17 years old. She’s underage. You’ve got to focus, dude, or you’re going to be arrested.’ I made him swear on a stack of Bibles.”
—original “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke talks about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s auditions for their iconic roles. They apparently met for the first time in Hardwicke’s kitchen and rehearsed a kissing scene on her bed. [People]

“I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of ‘House of Payne’ and ‘Two and a Half Men.’ … I like crazy people who don’t give a f***.”
—Robert Pattinson reveals in Vanity Fair that he is a big fan of “Two and a Half Men” and its star, Charlie Sheen. Wonder what he thinks of the events of this week? Perhaps Robert is bad-ass enough to handle the drug that is Charlie Sheen?
After the jump, Rob reveals the favorite actress he’s worked with thus far. Keep reading »
“It’s always awkward in a way if you’re doing it with anybody. It really depends on how it’s staged and stuff. It’s like doing Twister.”
—Robert Pattinson is not the biggest fan of filming sex scenes. Here’s what he had to say about his big one with Kristen Stewart in “Breaking Dawn.” A 12 hour game of Twister does sound awkward. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“He’s a good kisser. He’s a lovely human being also. He reminded me of my best friend’s little brothers growing up. He’s just a silly, fun guy; we laughed a lot. He makes fun of himself all the time; he’s adorable.”
—Christina Ricci dishes to Rachael Ray about her co-star in the movie “Bel Ami,” Sir Robert Pattinson. Looks like all the rabid Edward fans out there have a new woman to hate besides Kristen Stewart. Though the juxtaposition of the phrases “good kisser” and “little brothers” is a wee bit disconcerting. [Celebuzz]
