London: Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson says he cried on the sets of his latest film `Water For Elephants` after completing his shoot with an elephant.

The 24-year-old actor admits he was sad when his animal co-star Tai finished her last day of filming and he shed a tear for the performer, reports

"I cried the last day that Tai was on the set of `Water For Elephants`, and during the film, `March of the Penguins`," he told Seventeen Latino magazine.

The actor says he enjoys making movies with animals more than professional actors as there is less pressure.

"I think I have more affinity with animals than with people. For many reasons, I prefer working with animals and children than with actors. Often when you`re working with actors, it becomes something almost competitive," he said.
