Robert Pattinson looked better than ever during his first public appearance since news broke that his girlfriend of almost four years, Kristen Stewart, had cheated on him with her director, Rupert Sanders.
The actor stopped by the The Daily Show on Monday night to promote his new film, Cosmopolis, and host Jon Stewart got right down to business.
"So, what have you been up to,” Jon asked with a laugh, addressing the elephant in the room.
“God, I thought we already prepared this,” Rob said with a smile. “I had a joke prepared!”
To loosen to mood, Jon handed Rob a container of Ben & Jerry’s and joked that they were just “two gals,” wallowing over a breakup and bonding over ice cream. “Alright, tell me everything,” Jon said.
“I’m trying to avoid eating this [ice cream] because I’m going to split my spanx, the Twilight star, 26, replied, clearly dodging the question. "This is the weird thing about these interviews.”
Rob went on to say that he wasn’t very prepared for the interview. "Normally actors get scripted with an anecdote — I'm going to hire a publicist,” he awkwardly said with a laugh, adding that his personal problems have nothing to do with "the real issues of Americans.”
