Robert Pattinson's old-fashioned shape

April 30th, 2011

Robert Pattinson thinks he has an "old-fashioned" body.

The 24-year-old actor jumped at the chance to play a young vet opposite Reese Witherspoon in 'Water for Elephants' because he has always wanted to star in a 1930s film, and was astonished at how well he suited the costumes.

He told more! magazine: "I always wanted to do a movie that was set in the 1930s as I love the clothes they wore. And then this came along.

"The wardrobe was amazing - all authentic stuff - and everything I tried on fitted perfectly.

"I must have an old-fashioned body or something, as the clothes suited me better than regular ones."

Robert also enjoyed working with Reese - who won a Best Actress Oscar for her role as June Carter in 2005's Johnny Cash biopic 'Walk The Line'- and was delighted by how supportive she was.

He said: "When you meet people who have won an Oscar, you think they're going to be off in their own little world, but Reese was incredibly kind and supportive."
