Robert Pattinson, 'The Graham Norton Show'Animals can be notoriously difficult to work with. According to Robert Pattinson on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), he especially found it challenging to film one scene with an elephant for his new movie. In the animal's defense, it was a rather specific and awkward scene.

"She was just supposed to be sniffing my crotch," Pattinson explained, but as we saw her trunk was more all over the place, and wound up resting on his chest.

He had to improvise the scene a bit, or try to force what was in the book. The problem? "It's incredibly awkward if you're trying to do the scene and you're like holding her trunk down there." In the end, it was a bizarre scene with the elephant's trunk going "all over the place."

"The scene made no sense, she just kept slapping me in the face," Pattinson said. In the scene, Reese Witherspoon asked if the two wanted to be alone, which would have worked if the trunk had been where it was supposed to be. Instead, it looked like maybe she thought Pattinson's character liked abuse?
