The Telegraph says the host brought out a couple of tubs of ice cream, but HeatWorld quotes Pattinson saying, “I’m trying not to eat this as I’m going to split my spanx. I’m double spanxed,” before digging in. Stewart joked, “The last time I had a bad break-up, Ben and Jerry got me through some of the tougher times so I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about, 'Boy, you are better off. Kick her to the curb.'”
Pattinson, known as RPatzz to his fans and his girlfriend Kristen Stewart, aka KStew, split up last month after US Weekly published photos of her and Rupert Sanders, the married director of her film "Snow White and the Huntsman," kissing in public. ABC News says KStew issued a public apology, "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." But after the news broke, Pattinson moved out of the couple's LA home and has kept a low profile until now.
Pattinson looked a little uncomfortable when Stewart asked him, “Are you alright? Is everything ok?” Pattinson replied: “This is the weird thing about these interviews. Now I’m going to sound like an idiot." “My biggest problem in my life is I’m cheap and I didn’t hire a publicist. In every awkward interview, normally actors get these things scripted.”
And now there is word that Pattinson and KStew are ready to meet up. HeatWorld quotes an insider saying, “Rob needed time to deal with his huge shock and upset, but he’s agreed to face her.” “He’s back in LA [to promote his new film, Cosmopolis]. Now he has all his friends around him, he’s started feeling stronger.” “He’s incredibly hurt, but he still cares about Kristen and is actually worried about how upset she has been. A reconciliation is not on the cards, but they both know they need to thrash things out.” And the insider says a face-to-face meeting is scheduled at the Hollywood Hills home of a mutual friend.
