Robert Pattinson Rocks a Croc, Talks Kristen Stewart Rumors With Vanity Fair

'Twilight' Romance?
A timeline of Rob and Kristen's history.
Robert Pattinson has done his best to keep any personal information regarding his relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart at bay, and in his new cover story for the April issue of Vanity Fair (with photos courtesy of famed photog Annie Leibovitz), he approaches the subject directly … but still puts his little R-Pattz cloak over the situation.

“It’s just very traumatic … When this is over the media will lose interest [in the relationship]. There’ll be nothing to say. It won’t fit into a headline anymore.

He goes on to say that Stewart is “a really good actress” and that “there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is,” but falls just short of saying anything about their are-they-or-aren’t-they coupledom.

The finest specimen Robert’s ever worked with is …  Tai the elephant, who he shares the screen with in his upcoming movie Water for Elephants. Rob says: “I cried when the elephant was wrapped. I never cried when anyone else was wrapped.” The film’s director, Francis Lawrence, confirms the on-set romance, saying, “I wouldn’t be surprised if Rob says the reason he took the movie was because of the elephant. He really fell in love.”

Stewart aside, Pattinson reveals his true favorite co-star: Tai, the Indian elephant he worked with on his upcoming film, Water for Elephants. Rob says: “She was the best actor I ever worked with in my life … I cried when the elephant was wrapped. I never cried when anyone else was wrapped.

And a quote with poetic timing also comes through in the interview, as Pattinson professes his love of Charlie Sheen and Two and a Half Men, telling the magazine he’s a big fan of “crazy people who don’t give a f—”
