On Monday, August 13, 2012, Robert Pattinson will speak with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show.” The prediction is that “Comedy Centro” will have it highest rated “Daily Show” since it premiered in 1996.
Though the 26-year-old “Twilight” star was reportedly heartbroken when he heard the news that his girlfriend Kristen Stewart had cheated on him with her “Snow White and the Hunstman” director Rupert Sanders, Pattinson never mentions the relationship with Jon Stewart. However, when “The Daily Show’s” host mentions that young people going through a break-up sometime feels like the end on the world, Pattinson answered, “it is.”
Officially, Kristen Stewart’s infidelities with married director Rupert Sanders’ was a banned topic in the interview.
The pre-recorded interview by Stewart was supposed to stay away from touchy issues but it seems the anchor managed to wriggle out Robert’s emotions.
According to leaked information Jon referred to the break-up of Hollywood’s new golden couple, who are the Brangelina of this generation for pre-teens and twenty somethings.
Jon reportedly began the interview by handing Robert a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream, saying: ‘Let’s talk about this, man-to-man.’
One online blogger, professing to be a chauffeur for Pattinson’s latest film ‘Cosmopolis’, appeared to have been inside the recording session and witnessed everything first-hand.
The Twitter user, known only as Tinker Bell, said: ‘Rob was real.’
Once he finished taping his “Daily Show” interview Pattinson headed for the red carpet at the “Museum of Modern Art” to promote “Cosmopolis.”
There, he managed a faint smile, as he put on his best brave face for photographers.
“Everyone I know, no matter what their feelings were about Rob and Kristen prior to this, now seems extremely sympathetic towards him and appalled with her behavior,” a Hollywood casting director told the “New York Daily News.”
The New York Daily News reports that “according to a New York image consultant, William Case, the events could be the best thing that ever happened to Pattinson.”
“The revelation humanizes him in the eyes of fans and make him even more lovable, especially to women,” Case told the “NY Daily News.” “If he says he was hurt by the news men will sympathize with him. If he says it was a shock, women will also sympathize with him. Even if he says nothing those who like him in films will still like him; they may even like him more.”
He managed a faint smile, as he put on his best brave face for photographers.
But despite his attempt Pattinson’s eyes told a sad story and it seems the star is still understandably heartbroken about the recent events.
Fans everywhere should be quite proud of how Pattinson is carrying himself now that he has surfaced. Not only is he behaving like the gentlemen we all perceived him to be, he is deliberately respectful of Stewart’s privacy.
Most Pattinson fans know that he has a long history of not discussing the intimate details of his personal life and that didn’t change for his “Daily Show” interview.
For those of you that are hoping a Pattinson/Stewart reconciliation, don’t put any money on it. The situation is quite complex. While it is clear that Stewart will do anything to resolve their shattered romance, Pattinson has to be under extreme pressure from his family and friend to move on. Now Magazine, a web publication in the UK reports that, “Rob’s parents Richard and Clare and his sisters Lizzy and Victoria are trying to convince R-Pattz, 26, it’s not a great idea. ‘They’re worried she may win him over and have told him he mustn’t meet her.”
The website further reported that “’Lizzy’s even offered to accompany him to the ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2’ premiere in November, so that Kristen can’t talk him round.’”
Pattinson is perhaps’ dreading’ promoting the film with Stewart.
I have consistently published articles that asks us all to put aside our tendency to judge Stewart because she is, by her prolonged absence from public appearances, not handling the split well. Thus, we would better serve her and ourselves if we would simply showed some compassion for what she is going through.
As I mentioned in my previous article, Fans and the acting community should be concerned that Stewart doesn’t become so depressed that she makes a mistake she won’t be able to reverse. Think about it … Stewart is not a street girl. In Fact, her mother, Jules Mann-Stewart, is a script supervisor, and her father, John, is a producer and stage manager, so she comes from good stock. It is quite reasonable for her to have withdrawn in order to avoid the humiliation of public shame she would have surely been subjected to.
Thus, as intelligent, responsible and respectful fans, reason suggests that Stewart is not the typical street-wise 22-year-old with a lot of dating experience. Taylor Swift, who happens to be the same age as Stewart has more experience with men. My argument posited the notion that Stewart’s inexperience, general shyness, and depression could be a recipe for disaster.
All we need to do is to take a page out of Pattinson’s playbook and keep our discourse positive and responsible. Together we could make a difference by simply elevating compassion over a desire to dish out punishment.
Don’t you think she’s been punished enough?
