Robert Pattinson has been fairly tight-lipped about his relationship with Kristen Stewart throughout his Cosmopolis press tour — but this photo, taken at last night’s TimesTalk with RPattz and David Cronenberg, indicates that the Twilight star might be entering a new era of openness. The pic shows Pattinson at the event, sporting a backwards cap, a neutral expression — and a fly that’s unmistakably unzipped. That’s got to be an “OMG!” on the Blush-O-Meter. Let’s take a closer look:
Tag: Twilight (51-60 of 405)
In a conversation as twisty, intense and referential as one of David Cronenberg’s own movies, the director and his Cosmopolis star Robert Pattinson spent the better part of an hour Wednesday giggling and talking to the New York Times’ TimesTalk on live video about everything from the billionaire-gone-downhill film, which opens wide in theaters Aug. 24, to prostate exams, Snooki as American royalty, of sorts, to watching YouTube videos of psychopath Jeffrey Dahmer to yes, THAT situation involving Kristen Stewart, albeit briefly and vaguely.
Things we learned from this new essay by Jodie Foster:
1. An 11-year-old Kristen Stewart once “begrudgingly danced around a sombrero” with Foster. Repeat: Kristen Stewart once danced around a sombrero with the star of Silence of the Lambs.
2. When Foster tells strangers that she’s managed to stay so well-adjusted because she’s “just boring, I guess,” she’s lying.
3. If the Academy Award winner were a young actor today, she “would quit before [she] started.”
Stewart’s Panic Room costar took to The Daily Beast this morning to defend her young pal, who’s been ripped to shreds by the press ever since her cheating scandal broke. Foster’s essay focuses on the difficulties facing celebrities in an age of constant surveillance and criticism. “In my era, through discipline and force of will, you could still manage to reach for a star-powered career and have the authenticity of a private life,” Foster writes.
Today, things have changed: “If I were a young actor or actress starting my career today in the new era of social media and its sanctioned hunting season, would I survive? Would I drown myself in drugs, sex, and parties? Would I be lost?”
Robert Pattinson appeared on Good Morning America today to give his second post-KStew interview — and, once again, he got through the proceedings without directly speaking about the scandal. Pattinson appeared a bit more relaxed when chatting with George Stephanopoulos than he did Monday night on The Daily Show. But the heartthrob still stammered and squirmed a bit when Stephanopoulos asked about his personal life, even though She Who Must Not Be Named was never invoked directly.
Stephanopoulos began by taking a leaf out of Jon Stewart’s book, offering Pattinson some comfort food — in this case, a big box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is Pattinson’s favorite — before getting down to the nitty gritty. “Everybody just wants to know, how are you doing?” the GMA host asked. “And what do you want your fans to know about your personal life?”
Pattinson took a fortifying sip from his mug before giving his answer: “You know, they seem pretty excited about… whatever,” he said with a grin, indicating the throngs outside the GMA studio with a tip of his head. “I’d like my fans to know that… Cinnamon Toast Crunch only has 30 calories a bowl in it, for instance,” he continued. “Pretty much everything that comes out of my mouth is irrelevant.”
This Week's Cover: 'Twilight' Exclusive -- Director Bill Condon on the scandal. Plus: Fall movie preview!
It’s been — let’s just say —an eventful couple of weeks for Team Twilight. Bella and Edward may find eternal, immortal bliss in Breaking Dawn — Part 2 (out Nov. 16), but costars and (only recently confirmed) couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are having a much harder time since incriminating photographs of Stewart and her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, surfaced late last month. “The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” Bill Condon tells EW. “Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”

Will Ferrell is in a glass case of emotion, again! The Campaign star was looking uncharacteristically glum last night on Conan — and when pressed, Ferrell admitted that he’s all busted up about KStew and RPattz’s earth-shattering breakup. “I don’t know if there was anything I could have done to prevent it!” he sobbed, adding, “IT’S NOT GONNA BE FINE AT ALL! Never gonna be fine! What they had was so special, you don’t even know!”
Bottom line: If you enjoy watching Will Ferrell yell (and who doesn’t?), you’ll like this video. Especially around 1:29, when Conan O’Brien struggles mightily not to lose it on camera.
If you haven’t been on the Internet today, you might not know that Kristen Stewart cheated on her boyfriend/co-star Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders (who is 19 years older than Stewart, and married with two kids). Stewart promptly apologized for her transgression, issuing a statement to People: “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.” (UPDATE: Sanders also issued an apology to People.)
The only way we at EW.com could deal with such devastating news is to talk about it. So read a (heavily edited) version of our chat after our heads exploded from all the craziness.
All of those crazy kids’ favorite vamps, wolves, “unique” hairstyles, a bunch of promos for Fox’s fall TV lineup, and scores of unwanted brightly hued surfboards came out to party at last night’s 2012 Teen Choice Awards.
The X Factor‘s Demi Lovato and Glee‘s Kevin McHale co-hosted. Flo Rida, Justin Bieber, and Carly Rae Jepsen performed, and — get this — No Doubt sang live. Hey, it is the ’90s!
The full list of TCA winners is on page 3 of this post; my own personal winners of Fox’s two-hour telecast are below. By all means, list your own in the comments.
