RPAU & Robert Pattinson at Sydney Premiere of Water For Elephants (6 May 2011)

image host

I cannot believe it’s been 10 years and thanks Vertigo for the reminder last night. The blurry photo above was taken by me on Rob’s first trip to Australia to attend the red carpet premiere of Water for Elephants on 6 May 2011. It still blows me away that we were invited to the event by 20th Century Fox. It was a balmy May day in huge contrast to today’s windy wet weather. I still vividly remember Rob stepping out of the car on what was an unprecedented 300 metre red carpet. It plays in slow motion on loop in my mind often and Reese was so tiny and stunning. It still feels surreal that we were on that same carpet with him and then Rob on stage at The State Theatre when he walked out – peered into the audience and said “Let’s ava look atchya” – GOLD. Thanks for the memories Rob and I can’t wait until you can come back … we miss you. *Waves to Dean*.

E!News Shares Some BTS “Secrets” About Robert Pattinson ~ Water for Elephants (2011)


I don’t know if these are really secrets, we all knew Rob played Reese’s son in Vanity Fair (even though his scene was cut from the film) and that Rob had a cold during the love scene, but did I know Channing Tatum auditioned? To be honest I may have, but who can really remember all the details from 2011. Water for Elephants was released on 22 April 2011 and as a throwback E!News ran an article on 14 Secrets About Water for Elephants. Below are the excerpts relationg to Rob:

2. Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, was one of the last actors to join in the role of Jacob (no, not that werewolf), with Lawrence admitting, “In all honesty, I was skeptical after Twilight, because I didn’t know, because of how stylized those movies are, I didn’t know what he could do behind all the contacts and make-up and stuff. When I sat down with him, I realized that he’s quite a bit like the Jacob character himself,” he said of his film’s lead. “He’s a really good guy, and even with all the craziness, he’s still very humble, still very comfortable in his own skin.”

3. However, this wasn’t the first time Witherspoon and Pattinson worked together. The Twilight star played her estranged son in 2004’s Vanity Fair, but his part was cut from the final version and the deleted scene ended up as a DVD extra.

“He was walking down this corridor and I turned to the director and I said, ‘That’s my son? He’s so good looking,'” she recalled in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I was like, ‘He’s so hot!'”

4. Channing Tatum, Andrew Garfield and Emile Hirsch all reportedly auditioned for the role of Jacob. 

8. The filming of Marlena and Jacob’s love scene was anything but romantic.

“I was doing it when I had a really bad cold,” Pattinson told MTV at the time. “My nose is running all over the place, and it was in one of the additional photography scenes, and Reese had this wig on, and literally, I was wiping my nose on her wig.” 

9. Witherspoon scored major points with daughter Ava Phillipe when she introduced the then-10-year-old to Pattinson on the movie’s set, along with her younger brother, Deacon.

“Ava seemed especially excited to meet him,” a source told People at the time. “The filming with Rob is going really well and Reese was excited for the kids to meet him.”

Thanks @Monsieur_HJ for heads up

The Film Stage – The B-Side Celebrate Robert Pattinson

image host

The Film Stage’s – The B-Side is celebrating Rob’s career – not so much the successful films that Rob’s received acclaim for, but the movies that he made in between. From The B-Side:

As his star rose, Pattinson would get weirder and weirder in his role choices. The ultimate result is a filmography primarily built by B-sides. Today, Conor and I focus on four: Remember MeWater for ElephantsQueen of the Desert, and Damsel.

We bring up that GQ profile that got some traction at the start of quarantine, The Takeout’s attempt to make Pattinson’s “fast food pasta,” the quite-memorable ending of Remember Me, the impressive life of Gertrude Bell (on which Queen of the Desert is based), and the tragedy that nobody has watched Damsel.

ON THIS DAY : 11 years ago Rob came to Australia for the first time to attend the premiere of Water for Elephants in Sydney. It was the longest red carpet held stretching from the commencement of Pitt Street Mall at King Street all the way to the entrance of The State Theatre on Market Street. It was the first red carpet that RPAU had been invited to and what a a spectacular evening – we will never forget the moment Rob stepped out of the car and was standing in front of us in the flesh. Below is our 2015 post reminiscing about this wonderful night.

Plus to celebrate our 4 year anniversary of the Water For Elephants Sydney premiere – here’s a short snippet of Rob arriving inside the theatre on that night.  I still can’t forget what it was like to finally see Rob in the flesh

Beautiful Jacob Jankowski, how I adore him. These 4 stills we have seen, but not in this, to quote Vertigo ‘big clicky action’ 🙂

Pretty sure this photo is from the London premiere of Water for Elephants in 2011 at Vue Westfield. It’s also the same outfit that Rob wore on The Graham Norton Show.
