Robert Pattinson Says ‘Water For Elephants’ Felt Like A ‘Big Movie’

'It felt totally different from doing something within the 'Twilight' world,' he tells MTV News of stretching beyond vampire role.

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.”
