If there has ever been anyone who has managed to handle a cheating scandal with grace, it is one of the victims of the Kristen Stewart / Rupert Sanders affair in Robert Pattinson. The actor appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” Monday night in order to promote his new movie “Cosmopolis,” and the conversation was far more funny than it was tragic.
While Pattinson uttered nary a word about Stewart during the interview, he did sit down and enjoyed a pint of ice cream as he and the host joked about how he needs to hire a publicist, what it means to be in the spotlight, and gave the following line that put everything else in Stewart’s show — which focused on Paul Ryan getting the Vice-Presidential nomination — in perspective:
“I think you’re confused about this show and what the real issues in America are … Tonight, it really is the Twilight show.”
Stewart told him ultimately that, despite his jokes about it, he is hoping that he is able to take care of his personal life privately and not have to be dragged through the mud about anything and everything related to Stewart. as for the movie, Pattinson joked that his real goal is for it to make more money in its first weekend than “The Dark Knight Rises” — which he deadpanned will be hard given that it is coming out in limited release on only six screens.
