The Twilight star was shooting an animal scene when photographers made it "impossible" to film.

According to WENN, Pattinson said: "We had a scene with elephants but there were so many paparazzi around that it was scaring the animals and it was impossible to film.

"Out of the blue, fans, that were waiting for autographs, had enough and circled around the paparazzi. Teens made big guys run away. It was unreal! I was pleased."
