In ‘Water for Elephants,’ Safety Stars in the Center Ring: From Large Cats to Larvae, American Humane Association Certifies That ‘No Animals Were Harmed’®


From a four-ton elephant to tiny fly larvae, American Humane Association was on the set of “Water for Elephants” ensuring that every animal in the production was treated humanely and kept safe. American Humane Association awarded this 20th Century Fox film its highest rating, “Monitored: Outstanding – ‘No Animals Were Harmed’ ®.”
“It’s a big endorsement to get from the American Humane Association,” said lead actress Reese Witherspoon. “They’re very conscious of how the animals are treated. They’re on set every day, making sure the animals were provided safe facilities and safe transportation and that they can only work a certain amount of hours. They are just the happiest animals — you can tell!”
Lead actor Robert Pattinson said, “Elephants are the most sophisticated, gentle creatures you could possibly hope to work with.” He noted, “It’s nice to know that there’s a company that literally was [even] looking after the maggots, checking after the maggots being treated right.”
Based on the best-selling novel by Sara Gruen, “Water for Elephants” is about a veterinary student who joins a traveling circus during the Depression era. Among the animals he attends to are horses, lions, tigers, leopards, zebras, llamas and his favorite, Rosie the elephant. Rosie was played by Tai, who lives on a ranch in Southern California. During the day, Tai stayed around her large, custom transport vehicle, free to go in or out as she wished. She worked on-set only a couple of hours at a time and received plenty of breaks for rest, snacks and “calls of nature.” Throughout the entire filming process, an American Humane Association Certified Animal Safety Representative™, Gina Johnson, ensured that Tai received proper treatment. While Tai and her trainer focused on her performance, Johnson diligently monitored the temperature, lighting, other animals, people and other requirements of American Humane Association’s“Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media.”
Although the animal abuse scenes in “Water for Elephants” appear intense, no animals were harmed in filming them. The perception of abuse was created using makeup, fake blood, computer-generated images and post-production sound effects. “Tai was never hit in any way at all,” Johnson said. The elephant did witness the actors swinging sticks and yelling loudly, as they acted out the beating scenes; however, even that aspect of the scene was carefully planned and rehearsed so Tai would not feel anxious or afraid. Tai’s trainer gave her constant positive reinforcement, such as a food treat or play time, to motivate her. So what was one of this enormous animal’s favorite motivational treats? A marshmallow!

Robert Pattinson Talks Underwear And Karaoke On ‘Ellen’-VIDEO

Source: MTV News
Robert Pattinson is everywhere these days as he promotes his upcoming romantic drama “Water for Elephants.” But leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to plumb fresh (and often endearingly bizarre) territory with the 24-year-old star.
When RPattz stopped by “Ellen” — the pre-taped interviewed aired Wednesday (April 20) — their conversation ranged from his choice of underwear to why he’s more comfortable around wild animals than people to one of the best days of his life.
That day came last fall, when he popped into a bar in Lubbock, Texas (home of Texas Tech’s 30,000 students) to sing a little karaoke. Before he knew it, though, a mob had gathered outside. But the police locked down the area and Pattinson and a friend were free to belt out tunes like R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly.”
“We got stuck in the bar for hours and hours because there was this big crowd outside,” said Rob, who was content to hang out and sing. “It was one of the best days of my life!”


Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Fuel Romance Rumors With Kiss

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have fuelled ongoing rumours they are secretly dating after they were photographed in an intimate clinch in New York on Sunday night (April 17).

The actor was in town for the official screening of Water For Elephants, his new movie with Reese Witherspoon, and after he walked the red carpet alone, Pattinson was spotted leaving a post-premiere party with his Twilight co-star Stewart.
The actress was seen taking Pattinson’s arm as they stepped into a waiting car together, and a subsequent snap appears to show them leaning in for a kiss.
The pair, who play onscreen lovers in the popular vampire franchise, has long been rumoured to be a real life couple, but both have denied the dating speculation.

Robert Pattinson: End of Twilight Filming is “Like a Breakup”

Robert Pattinson admits he is going to miss playing his Twilight character Edward Cullen. Pattinson recently finished filming on the final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn.

“It does feel like a breakup,” he tells the Chicago Sun-Times of wrapping up the series. “I do love the guy, it’s been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures and I’m going to miss him. It’s like the last day of high school.”

“It’s so strange because my life has changed so much over these years, but Twilight and Edward Cullen will always be a part of me,” he added. “It’s been my whole life. My whole 20s. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Breaking Dawn Part 1, which also stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, is scheduled to hit theaters in November. Pattinson appears next opposite Reese Witherspoon in Water for Elephants.

Remember Me

Love At First Sight Believer Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson believes in love at first sight.

The ‘Water for Elephants’ actor – who is dating his ‘Twilight’ co-star Kristen Stewart – thinks people can fall for each other as soon as they meet and says if there’s not an initial attraction, it’s hard to ever develop feelings for that person.

He told MTV News: “I think people can fall in love at first sight. I think pretty much all people who love each other, had some kind of thing at first sight. I mean, there has to be some kind of moment where you, like, feel a different energy around someone.

“Generally, if you don’t notice someone ever, you’re probably not going to fall in love with them.”

As well as believing in love at first sight, the 24-year-old heartthrob recently revealed he has a “romantic soul” and could never have sex with someone he didn’t love.

Robert said: “There is the idea of the saving love, I believe it. I’m not mushy but I have a romantic soul. Having grown up with two older sisters I have a deep respect for women. Sex and feeling for me go hand in hand.

“I’m not interested in casual relationships, I need to know people.”
