Robert Pattinson says he had to go face to face — literally — with one of the things that terrifies him the most…horses!

Robert Pattinson may seem confident and manly, but there IS something that gets him shaking in his boots — and he had to work with that beast while shooting his upcoming film, Water for Elephants.

“I had to get knocked down by a horse. That was terrifying,” the 24-year-old actor told USA Today. “It was just one split second but (it was) a fully grown stallion…I’m kind of relatively scared of horses as well. I’m just glad I didn’t have to ride any of them. I’m not particularly good at horse riding.”

In the film, Rob plays a veterinary student who joins the circus after his parents are killed. Rob’s character, Jacob, falls in love with a girl named Marlena, who is played by Reese Witherspoon. Water for Elephants hits theaters April 22. Are YOU excite d to see Rob get knocked over by a stallion?
