Posted Friday May 6, 2011 7:13 AM GMT

Making the most of their time down under, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson were spotted at the Sydney, Australia premiere of “Water for Elephants” today (May 6).

The “Twilight” stud and the “Walk the Line” lady showed up at the State Theater both looking dapper as they hammed it up for the local paparazzi.

Earlier in the day, Rob and Reese attended a press conference during which Pattinson shared a story of an event that almost kept him from doing the circus-themed flick.

Rob explained, “The first time I went to a circus, one of the clowns died. He had a joke car and it exploded. It was terrifying... And that’s the only time I’ve ever been to the circus.”
