Reese Witherspoon farted on by elephant

During an interview with Jay Leno, Robert Pattinson revealed that Tai, the elephant who plays a big role in his upcoming movie Water for Elephants, farted on co-star Reese Witherspoon‘s face while they were filming an important scene. However, he says she took it like a pro: “Reese had to do some tricks and ended up rolling under the elephant, and she [the elephant] went back on her hind legs and let out the most incredible fart directly in Reese’s face for a good 45 seconds,” Rob said. “It shows Reese’s complete commitment to do the job because she just stood there and took it. But I mean, the elephant’s got a big arse!” Reese plays a circus performer who’s married to a cruel animal trainer, while Rob plays the circus vet. Watch Rob talking about the incident with MTV, below:

    Now that’s just gross. Why didn’t she just get the heck away from the elephany? They could have re shot the scene. 45 seconds of it? she should have moved, it’s not hard

    how crappy…. what a sport Reece!

    Not moving for 45 seconds while in the direct path of a giant elephant fart does not make Reese a “sport”, it makes her like farts. What were the crew doing for 45 LONG seconds while she was getting an extreme fart facial, laughing?? Why didn’t someone interrupt the incident? I think this story is a crap, I mean, a “crock”.
