Interview: Robert Pattinson Talks the Good Life on ‘Water for Elephants’ Set

Robert Pattinson recently spoke to DiePresse.com about his surreal life on the ‘Water for Elephants’ set and his amazement of working with such grounded, Oscar-winning actors. Here’s what was said:

Rob and Christoph | Jacob and August

You are currently shooting “Water for Elephants” with the Austrian Christoph Waltz. How are you getting along with him?
Christoph is stunning, an insanely nice guy. He is not only a ridiculously good actor, he is also really funny, helpful, and a good colleague. I like his work ethic. I mean, the guy has won an Oscar—and despite that he is receptive, open-minded, and not the least bit snooty. And Reese Witherspoon is the same. It may be the nicest cast that I have worked with yet—a really great experience.

You seem to only work. What would the perfect day look like for you?
Recently I stood in the desert, far outside of L. A., and watched the sun set on a circus tent from 1930. Everywhere stood animals: elephants, tigers that should be loaded into a steam train. 300 extras in costumes raced around, the modern world had disappeared totally. Although that was totally fake, it still happened directly before my eyes! That was my perfect day. I would be gladly experience that every day. It happens continually to me: It calls itself work. That is wonderful and more than enough.

Rob, I would imagine that they have said similarly nice things about working with YOU! :)

    I love his down-to-earthness….I wonder what he will do once WFE wraps up? Will he continue to live with KS, go back to England, buy a house in LA, …..inquiring minds want to know! Maybe it’s because he is new to this “movie life”, but HE is such a breath of fresh air…….

    I love Rob more every time I read or hear his honest comments.
    He is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside.
