Reese WitherspoonReese Witherspoon's most terrifying horse scenes in new film "Water For Elephants" were cut from the movie because she couldn't force a smile while performing stunts.
The star plays a circus performer in the film and had to ride two horses bareback for one hair-raising scene.
She says, "I was riding two horses bareback, one foot on one horse and one on the other - it's called Roman riding, and it's nearly impossible. And of course they cut it out of the movie.
"I did it and they filmed it and they shot it and they left it (out) because it wasn't that attractive...It was terrifying."
