Joined by a giant elephant friend, the "Twilight" heartthrob and his "Legally Blonde" actress co-star cheerfully posed alongside one another at a "Water For Elephants" press conference held at Luna Park.
With Rob and Reese having made the trip to Australia after a multi-stop tour through Europe, Pattinson spoke about how he had to overcome his fear of the circus to take on the role.
"The first time I went to a circus, one of the clowns died," he said. "He had a joke car and it exploded."
The 24-year-old English actor added, "It was terrifying.... And that's the only time I've ever been to the circus."
