Q: Not a lot of men connect with the movie so passionately. It’s not really what might be called a “chick flick,” but it’s very romantic and very beautiful.
I know. It’s strange. My dad loves it and he never reads anything. I think maybe because the reality of working in a circus? And then it can be so harsh … maybe (it’s) more relatable to men. But it’s not really a totally romanticized story. It’s impossible to romanticize.
Q: You’ve worked with werewolves in “Twilight.” What was it like working with Tai the elephant in this?
She’s incredible. She’s one of the best actresses I’ve ever worked with. She plays Rosie in the book, and that’s an incredible difficult part to play. It’s really integral to the story. It’s really difficult casting to find an elephant that could pull it off. … Plus, she does impressions.
She does impressions of chickens and stuff. And her general attitude is crazy, but she was also just so calm. She could be in a massive crowd of people … but she just stayed totally calmed, looking quite cheerful all the time. She just needs a bit of hay and that’s it.
Q: You two have that in common, right? I’ve seen you very calm in massive crowds of screaming teenagers.
Yes, but I complain about it afterwards. She doesn’t complain about it; she is an incredible creature.
