R-Patz – who has recently finished filming the hotly anticipated movie – stars as Jacob Jankowski, a veterinary student who drops out of college to work as a vet for a travelling circus.

In the film he falls for a circus performer played by Reese Witherspoon, and tries to defend her from her abusive, animal trainer husband.

His co-star Christoph Waltz – who picked up a Best Supporting Role Oscar for his part Inglourious Basterds earlier this year – has praised the star, tipping him to receive the prestigious Oscar prize next year.

‘It’s in my house,’ Christoph said when questioned on his gong, ‘but the way things are looking, I might have to hand it off to Rob next year!”

And Christoph’s not Rob’s only famous follower. Water For Elepants Author Sarah Gruen has already revealed she’s Mr Pattinson’s number one fan, after watching the star in action on set.

‘I think Robert Pattinson is really going to shine in that role. He’s so dedicated,’ she said in an interview with The Dallas Morning News.

‘This was a rough-and-tumble shoot, and when I was there on the set, he’d be lying in the dirt for 18 straight takes in a row, and he would nail every single one.
