We're used to Robert Pattinson stealing our hearts, but his looks aren't the only thing young ladies are swooning over. Turns out he's also an animal lover. The actor was spotted in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday filming scenes for his latest film, "Life," and he looked thrilled to be working with his newest co-star — a cow — and let's just say, we're kind of obsessed.
The snapshot of the "Twilight" actor has now become a celebrity meme. "The Insider" joined in the fun and made a meme of R-Patz with his cow on-stage rocking out with Beyoncé from the 2014 Brit Awards. The 27-year-old actor and his cow were also added to a snapshot of Justin Bieber shirtless (of course) on a beach in Panama.
But this isn't the first time the actor has worked with animals on set. The wolves used in "The Twilight Saga” weren't real, but Pattinson spent time with the real deal to prepare. The entire cast visited Wolf Mountain Sanctuary near Los Angeles to observe the animals' behavior.
R-Patz also worked with circus animals for his role as Jacob in "Water for Elephants." In an April 2011 radio interview, the actor talked to Ryan Seacrest about working with elephants for the film.
"They're the most kind of, sophisticated, gentle, creatures that you could hope to work with," Pattinson said. "When I met Tai, who plays Rosie in the movie, she was with five or six fully grown elephants, and it is relatively intimidating at the beginning."
Whether it's wolves, elephants or cows, the actor is definitely a fan of having four-legged co-stars. Back in April 2011 he told Seventeen Latino magazine why he prefers animals to human co-stars.
"I think I have more affinity with animals than with people. For many reasons, I prefer working with animals and children than with actors."
We can't help but wonder what animal Pattinson will co-star with next. In the meantime, check out this video to see the cute pic of him with the cow and tune in to "The Insider" tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
