Robert Pattinson’s new movie, Water For Elephants has had its UK release date pushed back from April to May.
The movie, which also stars Reese Witherspoon is based on the best-selling novel by Sara Gruen and is directed by I Am Legend’s Francis Lawrence.
The movie is set in the Great Depression and tells the story of Jacob, a poor veterinary student who begins work for a travelling circus.
The movie was due for release on April 22 but has now been pushed back to May 4 in the UK and Ireland.
For our 3rd update of the day, I have a nice little photoshoot treat for you! Thanks to my friend Maria, I’ve been able to add 6 gorgeous out-takes from the photoshoot Reese did for Entertainment Weekly late last year. Reese looks stunning in them! These photos were obtained for Glamour Reese Witherspoon, so please enjoy them here and don’t repost elsewhere.
We still don’t have scans from this magazine, so if anyone is willing to help out and contribute them then please give me a shout! Otherwise I’ll scan my copy when I finally get my scanner fixed 😉
I’ve also added a few new magazine clippings from this year, all contributed by Mirik. One of these clippings includes a new photoshoot image of Reese that I hadn’t seen before. Hopefully we’ll get to see more from that shoot in the near future.
EDIT: Thanks to Maria we have an additional 10 photos from the Entertainment Weekly photoshoot! All just as stunning as the previous 6!
I’ve made screencaps from the official How Do You Know site, mainly because there are a a lot of beautiful photos on there that we haven’t seen anywhere else!

As I posted about last weekend, Water For Elephants is undergoing a few last minute re-shoots. Director Francis Lawrence said on his Twitter that these re-shoots are for the following reason:
shooting a couple little additions and a surprise for the end!!! We’re almost done. Couldn’t be happier.
Needless to say the photographers were out in full force, and therefore I’ve added over 100 new photos from the filming last Friday and Saturday! There are some really amazing and very cute photos of Reese petting and feeding some little lion cubs in there, as well as some great shots of Reese & Robert Pattinson filming.
For all of the Robert Pattinson fans counting down the days until your favorite actor hits the big screen again, know that there’s now just about three months (94 days, to be exact) until the “Twilight” hunk’s next movie, “Water for Elephants,” opens.
When MTV News caught up with Pattinson at Sunday’s Golden Globes (he co-presented the award for Best Foreign Film), we asked whether he thought “Elephants” was a big stepping-stone for him, acting-wise.
“I think so,” he said. “It definitely felt like I was doing a big movie when I was doing it and it felt totally different from doing something within the ‘Twilight’ world because now it just seems so familiar, the ‘Twilight’ stuff. It’s just like going to a normal job, doing that,” he explained of playing vampire Edward Cullen in the franchise.
Pattinson’s “Elephants” co-star Reese Witherspoon told MTV News recently that she couldn’t help but agree with millions of fans about one thing: “He is extraordinarily attractive,” she told us. “I’m not gonna lie.”
Witherspoon shares a kiss with RPattz in the upcoming film and a new photo of the two in a lip-lock may make more than a few “Twilight” fans jealous.
But Witherspoon was quick to add that Pattinson is attractive both inside — and out.
“Robert is such a great guy from a great family,” she told us last month. “That’s the thing that’s so funny. He’s not really this bad boy; he’s just a great guy and really worked hard on ‘Water for Elephants.’ He really worked long hours, long days. He looks totally different in the movie.”
A new international trailer for Water For Elephants has been released. It looks the same as the Finnish trailer we posted a few weeks ago, so perhaps they are the same thing.
Also Robert Pattinson had this to say about the movie when talking to them last weekend:
“It was probably one of the best experiences I’ve ever had making a movie… I’ve been working with [Reese Witherspoon] for the last three days,” he continued. “She’s amazing. She’s great. She’s funny.”
As mentioned earlier today, Reese is in Berlin today, and she and Paul Rudd attended a photocall for How Do You Know. Reese looked classy and casual in a little black dress and tights, and accessorised with a black necklace. The most important ‘accessory’ of all, though, was her stunning engagement ring, which we got our first sight of!
Over 80 HQs from this appearance have now been added to the Gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Hopefully we’ll be getting a few more How Do You Know promotional appearances in Europe this week … I love seeing Reese and Paul Rudd together!!
EDIT: 20+ MQ/regular-sized photos have now been added in.

Great news Reese fans! How Do You Know will be promoted in Europe leading up to it’s release later this month, and Reese is already here to perform her duties! She appeared at a photocall in Berlin today, and we will have photos from that up asap. There may be a premiere in Berlin tonight as well, I’m just guessing there. There is a premiere scheduled for London tomorrow (Thursday 20th), although at one London premiere source it says that this has been cancelled. I’ll keep you posted, so keep checking back for the latest
As you know, we don’t post about Reese’s personal life here, but I thought this one article about her engagement ring was ok.
Entertainment Weekly showed a picture of the ring in one of their recent segments about Reese, and you can see a screencap of that in the Gallery (click the thumbnail preview image below). Hopefully Reese will make an appearance at an event soon so we can get a proper glimpse of it!
The 34-year-old How Do You Know actress accepted a stunning 4 carat Ashoka cut diamond engagement ring from CAA agent Jim Toth. (UsMagazine.com was the first to announce the couple’s “happy” engagement.)
Toth, 40, worked with jeweler William Goldberg to design the perfect sparkler for his bride-to-be. Set on a pave diamond-and-platinum band, Goldberg says Toth was drawn to the rarity of the Ashoka diamond, particularly with its 62 displayed facets and rounded corners.
“Jim wants it to come from him and for it to be completely unique,” a source told Us in November.
According to Goldberg, less than 10% of rough diamonds each year have the potential to become Ashoka cut diamonds, making it “the only choice” for a star like Witherspoon.
2011 Movie Preview: ‘Water for Elephants’
Reese Witherspoon called Tai a ‘calm, … easygoing presence’ during filming, unlike some of the other animals in the circus movie.
On the last day of shooting “Water for Elephants,” Reese Witherspoon was so upset that she broke down in tears. She hadn’t been that saddened by a movie wrapping in years, the actress said, but she had become particularly attached to one costar: an 8,800-pound elephant named Tai.
“The day I had to say goodbye to her, I wept all day,” Witherspoon admitted. “It was one of the most extraordinary filmmaking experiences of my life. You work with actors and directors, but to have this nonverbal complete relationship with an animal that we were all very connected to was very magical.”
Based on a bestselling historical novel released in 2006, the film, due out April 22, centers on a former veterinary school student named Jacob ( Robert Pattinson), who falls for circus performer Marlena (Witherspoon). Because of the characters’ shared affinity for the big top, both actors had to be comfortable interacting with a variety of animals — horses, camels, and, of course, elephants.

Before production began, director Francis Lawrence planned a meeting with the stars and Tai at the 10-acre Perris, Calif., elephant ranch where she lives.
Reese shares lessons of the heart
YOU don’t become the queen of romantic comedies without learning a few things about matters of the heart and Reese Witherspoon is knowledgable.
Witherspoon – newly engaged actress and mother of two – is well-versed in the mysteries and mores of love, and she spends hours discussing and debating them with her girlfriends.
“I’m literally the girl who talks constantly about relationships. I hang up with one (friend), and I pick up the phone and call another one. It’s an ongoing dialogue all day long,” she says. “I don’t understand a woman who doesn’t talk about love and relationships.”
She has been through a divorce (from actor Ryan Phillippe) and breakups (most notably with actor Jake Gyllenhaal), but Witherspoon isn’t one to get hung up on past amorous calamities. She views them as life lessons.
“You gotta be glad that you went through them, and you gotta be glad that you learned from them. You gotta learn what you want,” says Witherspoon, 34, whose fiance is talent agent Jim Toth.
And like so many of the romantically challenged, you have to figure out if he’s the one for you.
That’s the perplexing question Witherspoon toys with in How Do You Know, a rom-com with the actress playing a past-her-prime softball pro who gets cut from Team USA and finds herself torn between two guys: a self-absorbed jock (Owen Wilson) and a somewhat neurotic businessman (Paul Rudd).
But unlike Witherspoon, who exudes certainty and self-assurance, the character of Lisa is a romantic naif.
I noticed the site had fallen behind on Reese’s many Avon adverts from the last few years, so I thought I’d post this one that I just came across. It’s for the Avon Ungaro perfume and is well over a year old, but it hasn’t been posted here I don’t think, and Reese looks gorgeous in it!
