The world has been waiting for actor and heartthrob Robert Pattinson to emerge from hiding ever since recent events with girlfriend Kristen Stewart drove the couple apart and sent the paparazzi on a hunt for photos of the super-celebrities.
If you’ve been living under a rock, let us bring you up to speed. Kristen Stewart, the Bella to Robert Pattinson’s Edward in the Twilight franchise, has cheated on Pattinson — off-screen. The actress admitted that she kissed her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. The couple has since separated — Pattinson has been staying at Reese Witherspoon’s Ojai, Calif. ranch to hide out from the crowds.
Last night, Pattinson made an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote his new film Cosmopolis. Stewart, obviously wanting to be subtle in his efforts, casually asked the actor, "What have you been up to?" Pattinson, being a good sport, responded, "I had a joke prepared!" "God damn it. I was all set up and ready to go."
Stewart then whipped out Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Cherry Garcia for him Karamel Sutra for his guest, joking that they "we’re just a couple of gals talking." The banter continued on:
"So what are we doing here? Are you all right? Is everything OK? I'm worried about you," Stewart said.
"My biggest problem in my life is I'm cheap, and I didn't hire a publicist," Pattinson revealed. "I'm going to hire a publicist."
"I think you should," Stewart agreed, "Although, unless you have a time machine..."
“Either way,” Pattinson replied.
Stewart shot back, "Listen, the last time I had a bad breakup, Ben and Jerry got me through some of the tougher times. So, I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about, 'Boy, you are better off, kick her to the curb. Whatevah!"
Later, Stewart said "When you’re young, going through a break up, it often seems as it’s the end of the world. This is the first time I have seen the world actually react that way. It's insanity… Here is my wish for you, that you get to handle your business in private, in your personal life, and I wish you all the best."
Pattinson bashfully responded, "I should’ve talked about Cosmopolis!"
