Yes, that was Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon posing with an actual elephant to promote their new period piece Water For Elephants in Sydney, Australia on Friday.
Both Pattinson, 24, and Witherspoon, 35, dressed casually for the outdoor press conference, and the Oscar-winning Walk The Line beauty especially got a kick out of petting the elephant’s trunk.

Water For Elephants is in theaters now.
