X17 Online is reporting that:
Reese Witherspoon took a fitness class at the Cirque School in Hollywood yesterday afternoon — yes, Cirque is French for circus — so what in the world would the blonde beauty be doing flying on a trapeze or taming lions?
Well Reese is preparing for a role in the upcoming film Water For Elephants, a story about a veterinary student who abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet. And yes, that veterinary student is the one and only Robert Pattinson!
He’ll play opposite Reese in the historical film about a Depression-era traveling show. Pattinson’s character, Jacob Jankowski, falls in love with Reese’s character, Marlena — a trapeze artist and the wife of a crazy animal trainer.
So that’s where the Cirque School comes in … Their classes are taught by working circus professionals; the school’s founder is a Cirque du Soleil veteran who specializes in aerial arts.
I don’t know if they can work it into the script, but we hope there’s a scene in which Reese releases the trapeze and flies into Rob’s arms!
Pictures of Reese can be viewed at the source site.
