Seriously, this breakup/cheating scandal/whatever has done wonders for him. He is looking so sharp lately and more mature. I’m digging it. So, he’s started making the rounds for his promotions for ‘Cosmopolis’ which opens on Friday, ya’all. He’s hit up The Daily Show, NYSE, Good Morning America and Showbiz Tonight to name a few….and he’s going to continue to be very visible in the coming days.
Pushing a bit harder than Jon Stewart did on Monday’s The Daily Show, George Stephanopoulos gifted Pattinson with a box of his favorite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch — and then sweetly asked Pattinson to address the “elephant in the room.”
“Everybody just wants to know: how are you doing? What do you want your
fans to know about what’s going on in your personal life?” Stephanopoulos asked gingerly.
Quickly flustered, Pattinson giggled, smiled and stammered. “[My fans] seem pretty excited about . . .kind of whatever. Um, I’d like my fans to know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch is just 130 calories [a serving!]. Pretty much everything that comes out of my mouth is irrelevant.”
Stephanopoulos then asked the Twilight star how he handles the personal stuff in media interviews. “You go into it to do movies. I’m never been interested in trying to sell my personal life. The reason why you go onto TV is to promote movies.”
Asked if he ever “gets used to” the pandemonium, he mused. “If you start getting used to it, then you become crazy. But, uh, it’s nice. It’s like being on the craziest theme park ride,” he said. “Totally exciting, but eventually, at some point, you’ve got to have a break.”
“You seem to be doing okay,” Stephanopoulos reasoned to the star, whose romantic status with Stewart, 22, remains up in the year: “Yeah, yeah,” he said quietly.source
It’s so crazy how NICE everyone is being. It’s kind of amazing and we’ll probably never see anything like this again. It’s probably because he’s not hiding in a closet somewhere showering himself in booze and he’s actually sticking with his commitment to the film and the press stuff. Good on him.
