NEW YORK — While “Water for Elephants” will be released everywhere on April 22, the highly anticipated film’s stars, including Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, showed up at the movie’s premiere Sunday in New York City this weekend

Witherspoon recently told the Los Angels Times about shooting with circus animals for the film, “I have anxiety. I get nervous, and I shake,” and she further explained that the night before shooting with the elephant, “I didn’t sleep, and I literally shook and shook and shook. … But the performances with the elephant were really magical for me. Against my better instincts I decided to ride the elephant with no harness, with no safety equipment. It was pretty great.”
