Robert Pattinson, 24, has admitted he has a phobia of horses. Furthermore, Robert being afraid of horse caused a few problems on the set of “Water for Elephants.” Robert said one scene with a stallion left him shaken. “I had to get knocked down by a horse,” explained the Twilight star. “That was terrifying. It was just one split second but [it was] a fully grown stallion – I’m kind of relatively scared of horses as well.”
Robert said there was a silver lining in the cloud – he was very thankful he did not have to ride a horse since he is not a very good rider either.
Robert has said that he found filming Water for Elephants very different from filming The Twilight Saga movies. The Twilight Saga movies are very familiar and comfortable for him while Water For Elephants was a whole new experience.
