Sara Gruen has revealed all on Robert Pattinson's acting skills and how she admires his 'dedicated' performance
Water for Elephants author Sara Gruen has praised Robert Pattinson’s performance in the upcoming new movie, revealing her admiration for the 'dedicated' Twi-star.
R-Patz – who has recently finished filming the flick – 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.
And it seems, after watching the star on set, author of the book Sara Gruen is fast becoming Rob’s number one fan.
'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.
But despite being an international star, down to earth Rob had no trouble roughing on set.
‘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,’ Sara revealed.
'He’s a nice guy, and he reads. He always has a book in his hand.'
Water For Elephants is set for release in April next year.
