International heart throb Robert Pattinson called “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Thursday from the set of “Breaking Dawn” to update us on production of the fourth installment of the Twilight franchise, and his new film “Water for Elephants.”

For the first time, Pattinson addressed the ironic nature of his character’s name “Jacob” in “Water for Elephants.”

“It is quite funny,” explained Pattinson. “As soon as a read it that was one of my main concerns.”

Pattinson fans, be sure to tune into “American Idol” tonight for an new exclusive sneak peek at “Water for Elephants,” 8/7c on FOX.
