Robert Pattinson: How I Charmed Tai the Elephant

Robert Pattinson holds onto Tai‘s trunk while promoting his new movie, Water for Elephants, outside the Fairmont Miramar Hotel on Sunday (April 3) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 24-year-old actor talked about working with the 9,000-pound Asian elephant at a press conference with co-star Reese Witherpsoon.

Asked about his “on-set romance” with Tai, Rob shared, “I had a relationship with the elephant, but it was based purely on candy.”

“I strategically placed mints, like suck on them for a bit and then stick them onto [my body], like covering my entire chest all the time, and [I didn't] tell anyone,” he revealed.

“So every time the elephant would be like constantly sniffing me, I’d be like, ‘I don’t know!’ She just really likes me! It’s crazy!’ Yeah, I think she was just sniffing around for treats,” he added.
