I’m not sure what I liked best about Robert Pattinson-Emma Roberts’ sofa banter on last night’s The Tonight Show. Was it when Jay Leno asked them if they’d met before, and the 19-year-old Roberts (who just landed a role in Scream 4) responded without a whit of warmth, “About 10 minutes ago. Yes, it was quite an experience.” Or was it when Leno put Roberts on the spot to see if she was Team Edward or Team Jacob, and she barely hesitated before saying, “I’m sorry, your hair looks wonderful in person, but I’m going to have to say Team Jacob.” Watch the video below, and note the look of utter betrayal on Pattinson’s face at the 27-second mark. I can’t look away.
I’m still trying to decide whether Pattinson’s retort was playful or downright rude: “You’ve just revealed yourself to have absolutely no taste.” Either way, it made for an awkward segment. “Do we have to sit next to each other for another few minutes?” Roberts joked. (I think?)
Should Roberts have been more diplomatic? Did Pattinson come off as a diva? Are they both just playing around with each other? Are you on Team Edward or Team Emma?
