Poor Robert Pattinson. He couldn’t even eat his ice cream because he thought that he was going to “split my Spanx.” Bless his heart.
From E! Online:
Stewart handled his business-as-usual interview turned major get with comedic flair, beginning mock-awkwardly with, “What have you been up to?”
“I had a joke prepared!” Pattinson protested, feigning dismay. “God damn it. I was all set up and ready to go.”
“OK, let’s just do this,” the host continued, busting out two pints of Ben & Jerry’s (Cherry Garcia for him, Karamel Sutra for his guest) and a couple of spoons.
“Now, we’re just a couple of gals talking,” Stewart said. “All right…Tell me everything.”
“I’m trying to avoid eating this, I’m going to split my Spanx,” the Cosmopolis star deadpanned.
“So what are we doing here? Are you all right? Is everything OK? I’m worried about you,” Stewart continued things along.
“My biggest problem in my life is I’m cheap, and I didn’t hire a publicist,” Pattinson revealed. “I’m going to hire a publicist.”
“I think you should,” Stewart agreed, “although, unless you have a time machine…”
“Either way,” Pattinson replied.
And here’s a little quote from People:
But when Stewart noted that for young people going through a breakup sometimes feels like the end of the world, Pattinson answered, “It is.”
The audience then went “Awwwwwww.”
So essentially, Robert Pattinson is a darling angel of a man who deserves all the kindness and hugs and ice cream in the world. That, and now I really, really can’t wait for his interview with Good Morning America tomorrow.
