Robert Pattinson on 'Good Morning America' agrees he's 'doing OK'
Robert Pattinson continued to get the star treatment in New York Wednesday, stopping at "Good Morning America," where he was gifted a box of his favorite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Pattinson sat down to discuss his upcoming movie "Cosmopolis," but before he could get to promoting the new flick, host George Stephanopoulos explained they would have to address the "elephant in the room."
He gently asked Pattinson how he was doing, referring to the recent revelation that his longtime girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, had cheated on him with Rupert Sanders, her director on "Snow White and the Huntsman"
A visibly uncomfortable Pattinson stumbled over his words and changed the subject, making comments about the crowd outside the studio. Stephanopoulos pressed on and asked what Pattinson would like his fans to know.
"I'd like my fans to know Cinnamon Toast Crunch only has 30 calories a bowl in it, for instance," the actor joked, shifting in his seat.
"I take it that you don't want to talk to much about it," Stephanopoulos said.
Pattinson explained he had no interest in showcasing his life outside of acting.
"I've never been interested in trying to sell my personal life, and that's really the only reason people bring it up."
When Stephanopoulos asked if Pattinson has figured out how to get used to the attention his personal life gets he replied:
"If you start getting used to it, it means you're going crazy," he said.
Stephanopoulos finally concluded: "You seem to be doing OK."
And Pattinson replied with a simple "yeah," and the two proeceeded to discuss the movie, which the actor did much more comfortably.
Pattinson, 26, began dating his "Twilight" co-star after they met in 2008. The couple never publicly acknowledged their relationship until July 25, when photos of Stewart, 22, with Sanders, 41, surfaced on the cover of US Weekly.
