But unfortunately, it’s not what you think it’s for—it’s for Cosmopolis, his new movie, and not to publicly bash Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders for being cheating, sneaky, self-serving bastards bent on wrecking relationships for days. No, I’m sure no one on Good Morning America (where his appearance is scheduled for the fifteenth) is going to bother asking Rob what’s happening with the two, because Cosmopolis is just that good, I’m hearing. From Us Weekly:
Ready or not, R-Patz is coming out of hiding next week. In seclusion since learning of love Kristen Stewart’s fling with Rupert Sanders, Robert Pattinson will kickstart promotions for his new film, Cosmopolis — including a live TV interview on Good Morning America next Wednesday, August 15, a rep for the film confirms to Us Weekly.
The British star is also expected to hit the red carpet in NYC two nights earlier.
Pattinson has been enjoying some R&R at the $7 million, 7-acre ranch in Ojai, Calif. lent to him by pal Reese Witherspoon. Over the weekend, he was spotted having “a few drinks and laughs” at a local country-western bar, Deer Lodge.
“Rob’s a total mess, trying to figure out why Kristen did this,” a source told Us Weekly.
Back in late May — about a month and a half before she and Sanders, 41, were photographed making out in L.A. — Stewart had nothing but praise for Pattinson’s performance in Cosmopolis.
“He’s so good in it!” she told MTV News of the edgy, harrowing film, directed by David Cronenberg and based on Don Delillo’s novel. “He’s really, really [good]. I don’t even know how he [did it]. I couldn’t even understand it. It’s so good, it’s so cool and I’m so proud of him.”
I wonder if GMA is even allowed to ask certain questions. Because honestly, it’s not like Cosmopolis is supposed to be this earth-rending, mind-blowing movie that’s going to win Rob an Oscar or anything, and if I can be quite frank, the only reason he’s probably scheduled on GMA because of this busted-ass relationship thing, and not—not—because his new movie’s supposed to be the bees’ knees. Don’t get me wrong; I’m sure it’s going to be pretty good. But I think people are far more interested in what’s going on in his personal life right now, than that of what’s going on in a movie that he finished filming, like, two years ago or something.
