Robert Pattinson plus a puppy? Now that just makes our hearts melt. The Twilight star hit the Los Angeles set of his latest film, Water for Elephants, yesterday with a canine costar in tow. The movie, which also stars Reese Witherspoon, features Pattinson as a young veterinarian who gives up his studies to travel with a circus.
Though we’ve never seen the actor out with his own dog, he’s made it clear that the animal is a top priority in his life. “The only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog,” he said in the March issue of Details magazine. “My relationship with my dog, it’s ridiculous.”
We hope Pattinson’s pooch isn’t the jealous type!
