Animal searched the Twilight star's pockets

Robert Pattinson has revealed an elephant once tried to steal his sweets.

The actor encountered the animal while researching a role for a circus movie in LA. 

This big female started sniffing my foot – big female elephant, that is,’ explains Rob, 23.

She sniffed it so hard it came up off the pavement like her trunk was a vacuum cleaner. Then she took my entire body in her mouth.

I was holding on to her head, and as I slowly let go she tightened her grip really carefully until I’m just upside down in her mouth.

‘And she’s going through my pockets with her trunk, looking for peppermints. It was the best day of my life.’

Robert, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight
films, admits he is an animal-lover.

The only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog,’ he tells Details. My relationship with my dog, it’s ridiculous.’
