Robert Pattinson and the Clown

While promoting the film ‘Water for Elephants’ (2011), Robert Pattinson told Today that he witnessed a traumatic event: “The first time I went to the circus, one of the clowns died when his car exploded. Everyone ran and it was horrible “, he declared. A week later, when promoting the film in Germany, the actor was asked again about the story and ended up telling the truth: “I said that, but, in fact, I made it all up”, he confirmed.

However, as a good representative of April 1st, in 2011, during an interview with presenter Jimmy Kimmel, Pattinson admitted that it was all just a big lie.
