I feel for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Him for having to deal with her indiscretion with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, and her for doing something stupid.
But people do stupid things when they’re young. They’ll get over it and move on, either together or apart. He looks ok here, doesn’t he? Wearing a Gucci suit for the premiere of his new film Cosmopolis.
Pattinson also appeared on The Daily Show, but declined to say anything about the affair. According to Life & Style, Stewart started off the interview by handing Pattinson a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, joking, “Let’s talk about this, man-to-man.”
Then Stewart exclaimed, “The world has ended!” To which Pattinson responded, “It has.” Then laughed nervously and added, “That was my attempt at a joke” and “I intend not to say anything.”
I mean, seriously, people. Don’t we have better stuff to worry about then celebrities’ relationships? Yeah, I know I’m mentioning it here, but just to make the point that it’s their business and they’ll figure it out. Jon Stewart concluded that section of the interview by saying, “I wish you the best. These things happen when you’re young.” So true.
Check out the trailer for Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg’s heady drama starring Pattinson as a 28-year-old billionaire who rides across town in a stretch limo to get a haircut. And yeah, other stuff happens, too.
Ugh. I think of all the relationship debacles in my life, especially when I was young, and imagine what it would be like to have them transpire in front of the whole world. Horrible. Talk about insult to injury. I avoid asking celebs personal questions in interviews. Do unto others; I wouldn’t want to be asked those kinds of things. I wish Jon had just avoided the subject altogether and kept the interview about his movie – PERIOD.
@Jane Boursaw Yeah, at times, it can be a fine line. The piece I did about Bradley Cooper kissing a baby was as gossipy as I’ve ever gotten. The thing is, though, that I’ve never seen you post anything remotely mean-spirited. Even if you dislike a dress someone has worn, you aren’t mean about it, while many other publications resort to out-and-out name-calling in that situation. I just don’t see the point in being nasty or assuming people are dating because they said 5 words to each other unless the writer gets some sadistic thrill out of it. If the celebs are popular, I really do think the pubs would get just as many readers of stories that are about the work without the nastiness and personal stuff. But maybe I’m wrong; maybe the more salacious, the more hits. Still, does that mean you have to pander? I know I’m not willing to. .
@melanievotaw I’m not willing to either. I think well-written stories with good content always win out. And I’ve gotten more into celeb fashions lately, too. Posts with nice photos of celebs wearing cool designs score lots of hits. There’s a way to balance out the need for traffic – that any site needs to be successful – but without being mean-spirited. If people are looking for the nasty stuff, they can look elsewhere. I’d rather have a nice, positive site that celebrates the entertainment industry in a respectful way.
What I’m interested in is his starring role in the sequel/reinvention? of Lawrence of Arabia. That has to be one of my favorite movies, I don’t quite understand how they’re updating it.
[…] Murad is stunning, and a great choice for Stewart’s first red carpet premiere since her summer breakup trauma. For me, this dress transforms her from an awkward teen into a style-conscious woman who […]
