Reese’s Role

 

Trivia

• Channing Tatum, Emile Hirsch and Andrew Garfield all auditioned for the role of Jacob.

• Francis Lawrence describes Reese as a “timeless beauty”.

• Christoph Waltz said Reese helped him understand American culture more, which was completely different to what he is used too. She also helped him understand American circuses, as again, these are different to European ones. He said it was good to work with “two accomplished professionals” [Reese and Robert] who provided this access for him.

 

Quotes » Reese, Cast & Crew

Reese Witherspoon – “”

Reese Witherspoon – “I remember he was verrrrry handsome! I was like, ‘I have a really handsome son!’ I had to sob and cry all over him, but he was great.” – on working with Robert Pattinson before in Vanity Fair

Reese Witherspoon – “He’s an incredibly hardworking person with an incredible work ethic. He doesn’t ever complain. Not once. Which is sort of lower than the national average for actors. They’re always complaining. Especially the men!”

Reese Witherspoon – “[Water for Elephants] makes you think about opportunities and missed opportunities and how important it is to live a full life.”

Reese Witherspoon – “He’s dedicated. And he loves what he does. It’s amazing, he got such an incredible opportunity so young and he intends to use every bit of it to make creative choices from here on out.” [on Robert Pattinson]

Reese Witherspoon – “Well, it’s a boy thing, right? To have dirty fingernails and dirty hair, and his clothes were dirty all the time. It was a nice escape for him to be tan and in the sun all the time instead of the vampire gear.” [on Robert Pattinson]

Robert Pattinson – “It hap­pened while I was film­ing “Water for Ele­phants in which my part­ner is Reese With­er­spoon. We had a scene with ele­phants but there were so many paparazzi around that it was scar­ing the ani­mals and it was impos­si­ble to film. Out of the blue, fans, that were wait­ing for auto­graphs, had enough and cir­cled around the paparazzi. Teens made big guys run away. It was unreal! I was pleased.” [on the funniest experience whilst filming]

Robert Pattinson – “There’s something about her. She’s just this genuinely nice person. I don’t know if she puts an effort into creating a nice aura, but her mood dissipates over the whole set. It was a completely different environment from when she wasn’t there. All the kids and the animals were just drawn to her. It made it incredibly easy to do my part – all my reaction shots are just watching her work brilliantly. She’s really cool and she’s just…never, ever annoying. God, that’s the worst description, isn’t it?”

Robert Pattinson – “Yeah, completely. No, actually, I don’t know what I’m talking about, not really. I only worked with her for two days. But she was lovely to me, I remember that. I didn’t know what I was doing. I was freaking out. It’s pretty much the only time I’ve forgotten my lines, and it scarred me so much I’ve never let it happen again. We did a scene where she cries, and we started doing the scene and immediately there were tears…and I couldn’t remember a single thing in my head. And then they say, “Cut” and she wasn’t crying anymore. I was like, “How are you doing that? That isn’t fair. I want to be able to do that!” [on whether he remembered Reese from Vanity Fair]

Robert Pattinson – “It’s easily one of the best experiences I’ve had making a film and it’s by far one of the best experiences in my life. It didn’t even feel like work and a lot of that had to do with Reese. She makes an effort to make it like that. I think she believes that it’s really important to enjoy your work, especially when you have to be there for so many hours every day. I made a great friend out of it.”

Robert Pattinson – “Reese succeded to make feel me completely at ease. In the real life she is exactly how she seems on screen: very very sweet, friendly, with a positive aura.”

Francis Lawrence – “Reese was the first person I cast in the film and she was a great creative partner in the early days when we were putting this project together.”

Francis Lawrence – “She loves animals and has no fear of trying anything. [But] also, Marlena is a bit tough and hardened. She isn’t a victim and Reese… she is very strong.”

Tai Johnson (Tai the elephant’s trainer) – “Reese Witherspoon visited the ranch often to train with Tai, because she has some really physical scenes with her. She had to climb onto Tai, just how it is known from circuses when the girl sits on top of the elephant. Tai lay on her side and when she got up Reese had to learn to stand on her trunk. They had to train a few different options to climb on top then. In one scene Tai stands on her back legs and Reese directly beneath her. In another scene Tai does a headstand and Reese dances beneath her at the same time. That’s really complicated and we had to train those scenes with a choreographer. The timing had to be right. In another scene Reese stands on top of the elephant. Another time Tai sits on a base and stands on her back legs and Reese then climbs onto her back. They had to train that scene a very long time. Tai does things like that regularly and it’s part of her routine. She practices daily and a lot.”

• Gary Johnson (Tai the elephant’s trainer) – “I think my favourite scene is the last one in which Reese stands on Tai. That’s a very dramatic moment. Although she does a few different routines, this might be the most spectacular one. At one point she lies on Tai’s back and Tai dances with her all through the arena. That scene is very impressive as well. In another very funny scene Christoph Waltz (August) and Reese dance on a podest and Tai gets so jealous, she tips Christoph on the shoulder. Then she steals his hat, throws it on the ground and tramples on it. It’s like she wanted to say, “Let Reese be. She’s mine.” Rosie also seems to feel that Christoph’s role is not really a likeable one.”

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
