More details from Robert Pattinson about working with the animals on the set of Water for Elephants. It’s Rex the toothless lion!

From the

You’re working with animals on Water For Elephants. How’s that?
Almost every day I’m working with an exotic animal; there are scenes where I’m leading buffalo and elephants into cages. It’s insane, like I got bitten on the arm by a lion with no teeth. They were like, ’It’s fine, he does it all the time.’ And I was like, ’Erm, OK…’ But they had to get him to do it harder, because he was being so gentle and just licking my arm.

It’s a great interview with Rob covering Edward, Bel Ami, Kurt Cobain biopic rumours and his underwear. 😉 You can read the full interview here!

    Smart lion. I would totally lick his arm. Just sayin. What?

    • Pfft, he’s safer with Rex, the toothless lion (sing that to the tune of Puff the Magic Dragon!) than with most of us.
