The ‘Water for Elephants’ star – who was born and raised in London, England – has never met any of the monarchy, but continues to be surprised people believe that he has just because he comes from the UK.

 
Speaking on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, Robert said: “I don’t think I’ve ever met them. I used to tell people when I came to the States that I did. They believed me!

 
“Five or six years ago when I first used to come to Los Angeles there weren’t many English people, now there are like a million and people still believe me.”

 
The 24-year-old actor continues to travel between Canada, the US and the UK for work, and manages to do so with restricted luggage – although he still loses things.

 
He joked: “I have three bags. Luckily I wear the same thing every single day. But I still manage to lose things.”

 
Robert stars alongside Reese Witherspoon in his new movie ‘Water for Elephants’ – about a man who works on a travelling circus in the US depression – but was not scared about working with any of the big animals on set because he has never been hurt by one.

 
He revealed: “I worked with everything, everything we could think of. I guess because I’ve never been hurt by an animal I just innately trust them. It’s completely idiotic.”
