Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon posed for photos together at last night's premiere of Water For Elephants in Barcelona. It was their latest screening in Europe, after Robert and costar Christoph Waltz had a big evening in Berlin and Reese joined the boys to show off their circus drama in Paris. Reese also took advantage of her time in France to engage in some retail therapy, hitting up shops like Christian Louboutin and Carven. Both Robert and Reese are featured all over our brand-new PopSugar 100 — where do they rank on a list of your All-Time Favorite Stars? The trio of Robert, Reese, and Christoph have been all over the world to show off their film, including lots of travel across the US. We caught up with them at the NYC debut of Water For Elephants, though Rob soon switched gears to spend time back on the set of Breaking Dawn.
Video: Robert Pattinson Brings Water For Elephants to Europe, as We Get a First Look at Breaking Dawn!
Robert Pattinson is everywhere! The handsome actor is currently in Europe, where he's been snapping photos with fans for both the Berlin and Paris premieres of Water For Elephants. But he's also getting cozy with Kristen Stewart on the special Breaking Dawn: Part I cover of Entertainment Weekly. Watch as he works the red carpet and the magazine's hot cover!
Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon stepped onto the carpet at the Paris premiere of Water For Elephants today. Reese looked gorgeous in a one-shoulder red dress and $50,400 Cartier diamond earrings while Rob chose a sexy dark suit for the event. He was in brown to debut the movie yesterday in Berlin alongside Christoph Waltz, who was also on hand for this evening's press. Reese skipped the German stop but she made her way to France a day early and took advantage of her free time with shopping. International promotions for the film are just beginning, and the stars are expected to make appearances in Spain and London next.
Robert Pattinson changed into a brown suit for the Berlin premiere of Water For Elephants today. He arrived in Germany yesterday and enjoyed dinner with friends before stepping out for a photo call with his costar Christoph Waltz. The duo kicked off overseas press for the film without Reese Witherspoon, though she should be joining them soon since she was spotted catching a flight out of LAX last night. Robert is sporting a bit of a glow from his weekend in the Caribbean working on reshoots for Breaking Dawn, where he stripped down for sexy Edward and Bella honeymoon scenes in skimpy swimsuits.
Reese Witherspoon arrived in Paris today ready to tackle her upcoming Water For Elephants promotional duties. The newly married actress is expected to be busy over the next few days, likely starting with tomorrow evening's French debut of the film. She and her leading man Robert Pattinson have divvied up some of their press duties since celebrating the romantic drama's world premiere in NYC earlier this month. Reese has been close to home with her family in LA, enjoying Easter brunch with her new husband and kids and fitting in some workouts, while Rob made a solo trek to Berlin on Tuesday for the film's German unveiling tonight. He headed to Europe fresh from a weekend of shooting a shirtless and sexy Breaking Dawn honeymoon scene with a bikini-clad Kristen Stewart. It was a bittersweet night on the set, since the steamy session marked one of the final days of filming on the Twilight saga.
Robert Pattinson and his Water For Elephants costar, Christoph Waltz, popped up in Berlin this morning for a photo call. They're in Germany kicking off international press for the film, which opened back in the US last weekend. Their leading lady, Reese Witherspoon, has yet to join them in Europe, as she's hanging out at home in LA with her husband and kids. The stop in Germany is the latest in Robert's country-hopping itinerary — he spent a recent few days in St. Thomas doing reshoots for Breaking Dawn with a bikini-clad Kristen Stewart! Both Kristen and Robert were also in Canada just a few weeks ago wrapping up on-location scenes for the final installment of the Twilight series, though their big-screen buddies Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, and Jackson Rathbone just headed back north of the border yesterday.
Water For Elephants' Donna Scott on Kissing Robert Pattinson's "Luscious Lips," Reese's Circus Skills, and Big Top Burlesque!
Donna Scott has a role millions of women would kill for in Water For Elephants. As bawdy burlesque dancer Barbara, she initiates Robert Pattinson's character into the circus — sexually! We chatted with the mother of two and wife of director Tony Scott this weekend, just before she headed out to the theater to see the movie for the first time. She talked about shooting under the big top with Robert and Reese Witherspoon, how Rob's family helps him handle his unprecedented fame, and filming her slightly awkward sexy scene with him! She also told us about training with a tassel-twirling expert for her risqué role, and what happened when a trio of zebras got loose on set and sent her, Reese, Rob, and Christoph Waltz ducking for cover.
Tell us a little bit about your character, Barbara.
She's a sideshow coochie dancer, a burlesque dancer, definitely targeted to the male audience going to the circus in the 1930s. There was one part [of the circus] that was for the family, and the other was the sideshow.
Was Rob nervous for your kissing scene?
Just a little bit. It’s really funny, because Rob is so...Rob. And even though he’s a huge heartthrob movie star, he’s so genuine. I figured since he was a megastar that he’d be like, 'Yeah, ok,' and I saw that because I’m older and lived a lot more life, I was comfortable being way more forward than he was. So, I definitely was aware that it was genuine, and that when I would move in to kiss him, he’d be like 'Whoa!' He was genuinely shy and it was all fantastic. How we prepared was just stepping into it and doing it. [He played] naïve and deflowered!
How does Rob rate as a leading man and kisser?
Rob, on a scale of one to ten, is a ten. He’s got luscious lips, and he’s so sweet, and he’s a tender person.
Reese told a story about Rob running scared from the zebras on set. Is that true?
After Reese had injured her ankle and when Rosie ran off, we were shooting this scene where it was just Reese, myself, Christoph, and Rob, and there were three zebras staked right near us. They’re very high strung, and they were going crazy and pulling up the stakes. Rob went running away and Reese grabbed Christoph and put him in front of her as a human body shield, and she was like; 'Oh my god, I don’t know what I just did!' And I was behind one of the support poles, and it happened so fast, it was really funny. But Rob was running away because he was supposed to be leaving to do something in the scene, so I think he didn’t want to break character. He felt so bad. He was like, 'Everyone is going to think I ran away because I was scared!'

It was another big weekend for animated film Rio, which nailed the number one spot at the box office for the second week in a row with $26.8 million. It beat out a couple of new releases, like Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family, which pulled in $25.8 million, and Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon's circus romance Water For Elephants, which earned $17.5 million in third place.
Hop managed to make it to number four with $12.5 million — not surprising since it was Easter weekend. Finally, Scream 4 just squeaked into the top five with a total of $7.2 million in its second week of release.
