As Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson make the press rounds for their new film, “Water for Elephants,” an interesting little anecdote has emerged.

Pattinson shot a role as Witherspoon’s son in the 2004 film “Vanity Fair,” but his scene was eventually cut.

That was pre-“Twilight” — you won’t see much Pattinson footage landing on the cutting room floor these days.

Watch the alternate ending scene and gauge the actors’ chemistry for yourself (not in an Electra-complex sort of way).
