Robert Pattinson has said that the 1930s clothes he wore in 'Water for Elephants' suited him because he has an "old-fashioned" body.

"I always wanted to do a movie that was set in the 1930s as I love the clothes they wore. And then this came along," the 24-year-old actor, who stars with Reese Witherspoon in the film, told more! magazine.

"The wardrobe was amazing - all authentic stuff - and everything I tried on fitted perfectly.

"I must have an old-fashioned body or something, as the clothes suited me better than regular ones."
