"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."
King has interviewed celebrities, sure, but because 'Larry King Live' is also a news show, he has hosted more newsmakers and politicians than anyone else you can think of (including Oprah).
We took a look back at the long, stories history of 'Larry King Live' and chose 11 greatest moments, plus a bonus selection that featured a memorable appearance by a certain late night talk show host while filling in for King.
In honor of what would have been Johnny's 85th birthday, we've decided to present, as a tribute to the King of Late Night, the six best talk show hosts in the post-Carson era. So after sharing our take on the six most annoying talk show hosts recently, here's the other side of the coin.
But that's not all ... we're also celebrating Johnny's day with a special giveaway. The contest winner will receive the amazing DVD set, 'Tonight: 4 Decades of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.'
"Living well encompasses a lot," he told TV Squad in an interview last week. 'The Nate Berkus Show' is "not just about design, but it's about everything that goes on in the home."
That can encompass many topics, from entertaining tips to planning a budget vacation. But Berkus also hopes his show will address issues, Oprah-style, that affect his audience, like gay bullying.
He spoke to us about why he's spoken out about bullying, what's coming up on the show and his dream segment.

Funnyman Jay Leno won't have much to laugh about when he sees the new ratings figures for 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno'. After a chaotic year of changing hosts, multi-million dollar pay deals and very public feuding between the Leno and Conan O'Brien camps, it seems as though viewers have voted with their remotes and switched off this summer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leno's attracting far fewer viewers in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic than Conan O'Brien did whe he hosted the show. And, just to pile on the misery, the show has also hit a new record summer low in 'Tonight Show' history.
However, it's not all dire news for Leno. He's still ahead of CBS's 'Late Show With David Letterman' in the ratings, though CBS has pointed out that unlike Leno, Letterman's ratings have held steady since last summer when he -- ahem -- also reached an all-time low.
Sept. 7 also marks the first episode of the show's 14th season, and the day 'View' co-host Barbara Walters is scheduled to return after recovering from heart surgery.
CBS mega-host Julie Chen and executive producer/actress Sara Gilbert will be joined by Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur on the show, which they insist will not just be a 'View' clone, comparing the similarity to that of Leno and Letterman "it's just another talk show format," Gilbert pointed out.
On Thu. July 29, President Obama will chat with Whoopi, Elisabeth, Sherri, Joy and Barbara -- marking the first time a sitting president of the United States will appear on a morning talk show.
According to TVGuide.com, President Obama will film his episode on Wednesday as part of 'The View's' "Red, White & View" campaign. Look for Obama to tackle topics such a his administration's successes, family life at the White House, jobs, the economy and the Gulf oil spill.
"We are so pleased and honored that President Obama will be a guest on The View," Barbara Walters said in a statement.
Chen will sit on the panel of 'The View'-like talk show hosted by 'Roseanne' star Sara Gilbert that will replace CBS's long-running soap 'As The World Turns' this fall.
'As The World Turns' will come to an end in September after 54 years on the air, with Gilbert and her gang of moms taking over the time slot in October.
According to Deadline Hollywood, CBS looked at several different programs to replace 'As The World Turns,' including a cooking game show with Emeril Lagasse and a new 'Pyramid' hosted by Andy Richter. However, 'The View'-esque program tested pretty well with audiences.
Smith, who has already failed with a chat show on ESPN, is not a good candidate as a host because he's a grating personality. So are these people who we think about the six most annoying talk show hosts. Here's who made the list and the why ...
There were three big tributes for the night honoring Dick Clark, Agnes Nixon and 'As the World Turns.' Ryan Seacrest presented a special Emmy to Clark for his contributions to TV, including 'American Bandstand.' After a video flashback, he was saluted by live acts.
By the end of the night, the big winner of the night would be CBS, with 'The Bold and the Beautiful' winning the Outstanding Daytime Drama for the second year in a row.
Outstanding Informative Talk Show was won by 'The Doctors,' a first for that show, while 'Ellen DeGeneres' was the winner for Entertainment Talk Show. DeGeneres herself wasn't there, and another no-show was the surprise victor for Outstanding Talk Show Host, Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Tyra Banks had long been contemplating ways to forge an Oprah-style media empire well before the debut of her eponymous talk show in 2005. Setting aside her guest shots on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' in the 1990s, Banks decided to establish her TV-Q as a host by successfully launching 'America's Next Top Model' in 2003. That gave her the clout to fashion 'The Tyra Banks Show' -- which she segued to just three months after leaving the runway -- into something that was part tabloid, part tasteful.
Now that Banks has announced she's ending her talk show this season -- she'll be focusing on her production company, Bankable Studios, among other projects -- we formally add 'The Tyra Banks Show' to the pantheon of great talk shows we wish hadn't bit the dust.
"I was wrong for what I did," Brown said, who watched and reacted to clips of Rihanna's interview with Diane Sawyer last month. "I would definitely say that it's not something I look past or look over."

Heading into the premiere of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show's' 24th season, television pundits were debating whether Oprah had lost her edge; ratings had tumbled 7 percent over the past year, with one week of reruns notching the show's smallest viewership ever.
