Oprah Loves ‘Water for Elephants’ Too! Rob talks about this project and Oprah gives her ‘stamp of approval‘ to Water for Elephants. Maria in Ct I don’t know why they cut this from today’s show. That’s 2 clips so far about reading that were edited out from the Oprah show. I find that strange especially since Oprah is a voracious reader. che i can’t understand what Kristen says about her favourite book? anybody can tell ? Maria in Ct Kristen said her favorite book is “East of Eden”. Oprah said it’s one of her favorites, too. I can’t remember Kristen’s exact quote, but you can find it in a clip on Oprah.com or youtube. It was one of the extra clips that was not shown on the episode that aired. Maria in Ct Ok, I feel pretty stupid right now, lol, but it’s in the video above. She said her favorite book is “East of Eden”, that she’s kind of embarrassed because she’s said it before. It’s at 1:31 in the clip. Dee She said East of Eden. Unless there is another book with the same title it is a novel by John Steinbeck. It is a symbolic recreation of the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Alice87 I just loooove the look on his face, when Oprah says that she loved WFE!!! *sigh* lexi was i the only one who was a little put off by Taylor saying he also has a movie to shoot? i mean seriously i know rob overshadows everyone but at least be original, dude! I’m sorry if this has nothing to do with the post, it’s just that i really don’t like the dog, just don’t get it! Beth Taylor is only 18 and he’s obviously trying to keep up with Rob (in every aspect), but he’s young so let’s just give him a break 🙂 The book, “Water for Elephants”, is a lovely reading material. I’m really sooooooo glad that they chose Rob to play “Jacob”. He’s perfect for the part.
