This breakup surely has not been easy on RPatz…
Robert Pattinson made an appearance on Good Morning America this morning to promote his upcoming film, Cosmopolis. I’m sure his publicity tour has been a nightmare, but he is a trooper, showing up to all his scheduled interviews and taking it like a champ. However, it does get awkward sometimes.
Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos spoke with Pattinson and asked him about the “elephant in the room.” That elephant being Kristen Stewart, Pattinson’s longtime girlfriend and Twilight castmate, who cheated on the actor with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Offering his condolences (in a way) Stephanopoulos offered Pattinson a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch since it was morning time and Robbie likes him some sugar cereal. The box’s top was open. The whole thing was super tacky to begin with.
George starts off the interview like he is going to skip the cheating scandal and jump right into Cosmopolis talk. But no such luck for Robert, George wants to talk about Kristen right off the bat. In my opinion he really should have waited until he was at least a few questions deep before asking. As an interviewer you must build some kind of trust/rapport before touching such sensitive subjects. Throwing an opened box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch isn’t going to do it. How did Good Morning America and Georgie boy NOT know this? Morons!
“How are you doing and what is going on in your personal life?” George probes. Robert conveniently grabs his coffee cup and takes a long, drawn out gulp. Just enough time to think, then decide, “F this guy!”
“You know what…” he starts to say, then the crowd saves his ass by cheering. Robert diverts attention to them. He is clearly uncomfortable and you can’t help but feel terrible for the guy. Then he continues,
“I’d like my fans to know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has only 30 calories a bowl for instance! …Pretty much everything that comes out of my mouth is irrelevant.”
And just like that, Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s stock just went through the roof.
Awhhh, don’t you just want to hug him right there on the spot? Poor kid really is dealing with a lot, but he is 100% class act, and he’ll be the one who will come out of this on top.
