Robert Pattinson looked relaxed as he walked onto the stage to meet Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” last night, but the host wasted no time dancing around the sensitive subject of Kristen Stewart’s cheating with “Snow White and the Huntsman” Director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart, a master of comedic timing, drummed on the desktop, hemmed and haw a bit and then asked haltingly…”What have you been up to?”
The audience laughed as Rob looked quizzical then acted a bit flustered. “God, I thought we’d already prepared this. I had a joke prepared.”
“Did you?” Stewart replied.
“Yeah, goddamit,” said Rob. Ok… he really was nervous. And so the interview began, with Stewart breaking out the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
“We’re just a couple of gals talkin'” said Stewart. “Tell me everything.”
“This is how you got me on the show,” said Rob, diving into his tub of Karamel Sutra.
“I’m trying to avoid eating this, I’m going to split my Spanx,” Pattinson revealed. He was wearing the same steel blue Gucci suit he wore at Monday night’s premiere of “Cosmopolis” at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, also known as The MoMa. He taped the show earlier.
