LONDON - Reese Witherspoon says working alongside an elephant for new movie “Water For Elephants” was one of the best experiences of her career.
“It was one of the best experiences of my career. I worked with her for three months just training. I had to get into shape - I had no harness, no safety equipment, nothing,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Witherspoon as saying.
“It was literally just me and the elephant and I had to climb onto her. It’s a really beautiful thing where you learn to communicate with a creature non-verbally. She’s the big star of the movie,” she added.
The film stars Witherspoon as a circus performer whose horse dies, putting her act in jeopardy, until her husband - the circus ringmaster - buys her an elephant.
