It’s not easy being in the public eye 24/7, but Robert Pattinson does his best to promote his new movie Cosmopolis. While in New York the Twilight actor appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart which aired on Monday night (August 13).
This was the actors first public interview after the cheating scandal involving ex-girlfriend and Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart. Their long term relationship ended after Kristen and the married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders admitted in late July to an affair.
“I’m worried about you. Is everything alright?” Jon asked Robert, who wore a tailored Gucci light blue suit paired with a dark blue shirt and black tie.
“Now I’m going to sound like an idiot. But, like, my biggest problem in life is that I’m cheap. I didn’t hire a publicist”Rob said. “And in every awkward interview, normally actors get everything scripted. I’m going to hire a publicist.”
During the show, the comedian even brought Ben and Jerry’s ice cream as a way to console Robert.
“Don’t you think? Listen, the last time I had a bad breakup, Ben and Jerry got me through,” advised Jon. “ So I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about, ‘Boy, you are better off. Kick her [Kristen] to the curb! Whatever.’”
