Robert Pattinson returns to California for ‘Water For Elephants’ re-shoots

US actress Reese Witherspoon waves at the photocall of her movie “How do You know” in Berlin, Germany, 19 January 2011. The movie will start in German cinemas on 20 January 2011.

Last week rumors started hitting the web (including our own Breaking Dawn Open Thread) that Robert Pattinson had left Baton Rouge, where he is currently filming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, and was back in Los Angeles for re-shoots of Water For Elephants.

The movie, based on the best selling book, was shot in Ventura County, California last summer but Robert and his co-star Reese Witherspoon were back this week to shoot a few additional scenes for the movie. first broke the news last week when they posted a Tweet for the film’s director, Francis Lawrence, who wrote: “just shooting a couple little additions and a surprise for the end!!! We’re almost done. Couldn’t be happier.”

The re-shoot brought Reese and Rob back to the big tent on Thursday and Friday where they shared a sweet on-screen kiss and Rob played with a baby who was also featured in the scenes. They also shot a cute scene in which Rob carries Reese through the mud.

Here are a few photos from the shoot, you can see more at
