The ex-Twilight vamp admitted it was more than just his sweet personality that attracted his gigantic costar.
I strategically placed mints– like suck on them for a bit and then stick them onto [my] body, my armpits, like covering my entire chest all the time, and [didn't] tell anyone. 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."
"[Tai] was the best actor I ever worked with in my life. I cried when the elephant was wrapped. I never cried when anyone else was wrapped."
Oh reeeeally? We wonder if his Twilight co-star and girl friend Kristen Stewart knows that? Rpattz is more outspoken about this elephant love than he has any other relationship.
The film's director couldn't help noticing Rob's love for Tai, saying,
"I wouldn't be surprised if Rob says the reason he took the movie was because of the elephant. He really fell in love."
