Robert Pattinson will give his first post-cheated-on interview to GMA next week

Robert Pattinson’s publicity tour for Cosmopolis kicks into gear next week. Meaning this is Rob’s last week to enjoy Reese Witherspoon’s Ojai ranch and the kickin’ Ojai music and wedding-crashing scene. Rob has made the executive decision to put on his sparkly big-girl panties and be a professional. The New York Cosmopolis premiere will be August 13, next Monday. And then on Wednesday the 15th, Sparkles will sit down for his first live interview since Kristen Stewart’s momentary indiscretion.

Ready or not, R-Patz is coming out of hiding next week. In seclusion since learning of love Kristen Stewart’s fling with Rupert Sanders, Robert Pattinson will kickstart promotions for his new film, Cosmopolis — including a live TV interview on Good Morning America next Wednesday, August 15, a rep for the film confirms to Us Weekly.

The British star is also expected to hit the red carpet in NYC two nights earlier.

Pattinson has been enjoying some R&R at the $7 million, 7-acre ranch in Ojai, Calif. lent to him by pal Reese Witherspoon. Over the weekend, he was spotted having “a few drinks and laughs” at a local country-western bar, Deer Lodge.

“Rob’s a total mess, trying to figure out why Kristen did this,” a source told Us Weekly.

Back in late May — about a month and a half before she and Sanders, 41, were photographed making out in L.A. — Stewart had nothing but praise for Pattinson’s performance in Cosmopolis.

“He’s so good in it!” she told MTV News of the edgy, harrowing film, directed by David Cronenberg and based on Don Delillo’s novel. “He’s really, really [good]. I don’t even know how he [did it]. I couldn’t even understand it. It’s so good, it’s so cool and I’m so proud of him.”

First of all, although this GMA thing will be Rob’s first sit-down interview, I think he’s probably going to speak to at least a FEW media outlets on the red carpet for his premiere, don’t you? It’s possible that he could just do photos, but I get the feeling that Rob will probably stop by E!, maybe Entertainment Tonight, and maybe a few others. That press line is going to be EPIC. Poor Rob. Seriously. All of those media outlets there to cover the premiere of his small little Cronenberg movie, and none of the reporters will ask him any questions about the movie.

Also – there are lots of rumors that Rob is going to be spending some time in Australia while filming The Rover. I don’t know when that will go down… maybe soon? The press tour for Breaking Dawn Part II begins in November.

    He didn’t talk about his personal life before, it’s doubtful he’ll talk about it now. I bet GMA has been instructed not to ask any questions about this mess.

    • marie says:

      yeah, I’d be shocked if he actually mentions her.

    • kennedy says:

      Exactly. There is no way his publicist doesn’t lay down the law beforehand. It will be awkward for sure but I doubt those questions will be asked… so less entertainment for us :(

    • EllaDee says:

      I hope so! really hoping that the reporters don’t gang up on him about the affair. He is proud of this movie and deserves to promote it with no interference.

    • Krock says:

      Agree 100%. He won’t talk about it, mark my words. Mark them! lol I’m sure the interviewer will ask about it but he won’t indulge. And he doesn’t have to. The guy was humiliated publicly, why does he have to give everyone a blow by blow (pun intended) of what went down? (pun intended). ;)

  2. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I rarely feel bad for movie stars but I actually do feel a little sympathy for the fact he’s going to have to grit his teeth and go through this mess and only go through it but try and be charming so he drums up support for the movie. I think he may be able to pull it off. I hope he doesn’t have a mini meltdown on the red carpet.

  3. flan says:

    If he’s over her, he’s going to trash talk her.

    Remember, this is a guy who has no qualms about repeatedly slamming his own franchise. He’s quite funny about that too.

    • lisa2 says:

      I actually think the opposite. I think when you are over someone and have moved on and accepted.. you don’t trash the person.

      I doubt he is OVER her if he loved her. That takes time. I just don’t see him trashing her even if he is angry. Would be a douche move. Even if understood.

      I think he may have a bit more class in him then that. He could opt not to talk a lot about it or say that things happen and you learn and move on.

      but no trashing. To me that is a sign of someone that has not moved on.

    • Anname says:

      No way, he was in love with her for 3 years, and he has way too much class to trash her. I don’t think he will add to the ugliness of the situation.

    • diana says:

      He won’t. He has much more grace and self respect than whining and pitypartying.

  4. Bad Irene says:

    Eh what can he really say, he is in a tough spot. If he refuses to talk he will be seen as a spoilt diva and anything he does say will be endlessly picked apart for hidden meaning. Chin up Sparkles!

    • jaye says:

      Given that he’s never really talked about his personal life to the media before, if he doesn’t now I don’t think he’ll be seen as a spoiled diva. I think it will be par for the course for the media.

    • Ming says:

      Heavily doubt that.

      Kid doesn’t want to talk about his – right now – messy love life ? Who the hell would ?

      A Kardashian.

      Media might be dissapointed, he didn’t rip KStew a new one, but personal stuff was almost always a no-go. So it will be all about “no comment” and lot’s of “Okay…” *shrug*

  5. corny says:

    If Baba Walters steps in for the interview, he may shed some sparkly tears

  6. Gigi says:

    Don’t care about him or KS

    Please stop with these stories and write about Fassy (for example!) :(

    • SHump says:

      I’m going to go out on a limb and guess lots of their readers DO care, so good luck banging your head against that wall.

      Novel idea… just read the posts you are interested in!

      • EllaDee says:

        Word!

      • CC says:

        I don’t care about either of them but I find these stories weirdly fascinating froma sociological POV. It’s unusual to see a major male celeb being cheated on, front and center in the news. Usually it’s the (usually) bigger male celeb that does the cheating (see Brad Pitt, Depp, Kutcher etcetc), and they’re the ones that cheat with either nobodies or, the exception to the rule, an angie. Very unusual to see the guy being cheated on. I’m rambling, but yea I find … it’s like a car wreck, it’s bad but you can’t look away.

        Of course there’s also LeeAnn Rimes, 4 nobodies involved in a cheating thing (I’m guessing LeeAnn is the bigger one but I’m in Europe, she’s nothing here)

      • Angelique says:

        Yes, A LOT of people (teenage girls) do care a lot about this story, you are right… how old are you honey?

    • Rice says:

      I actually agree with you Gigi. Munchgate has gone on too long with too many stories made up by the media because no one legitimate is talking. I’m already bored and ready for the next whatever-gate.

      • geekychick says:

        It would be much more interesting if it weren’t all media speculations after the puictures: he’s crying; no, he’s not, she’s at a producer, she doesn’t shower, what will their friends say?, katy perry is chasing him; no, he’s with whiterspoon…blablablabla
        the only interesting question is will he dump her, and knowing agents and career choices in HW, he will.
        On sociological level, this is very interesting, I agree. How much has general public “developed”; (can’t think of a better word) in equality when image is in question? very little, judging by reactions. it will be interesting to see if her career will survive and how his is going to go (I thopught, prior to this, that he'll fade away or go into music in 2-3 years, now I'm not so sure).

    • GiGi says:

      I think the fascination here is that it was played out so publicly. I mean, there isn’t this kind of hype around anyone’s “next public event” after a regular (non photographed) affair.

      Because there’s no conjecture, no “did they or didn’t they” it actually strikes unusual. And because it’s atypical, it’s much more interesting to a lot of people.

  7. bammer says:

    It wouldnt surprise me if he talked about how he’s doing in a roundabout way. Just to get the media frenzy off him. Hes got to appear strong and confident.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yeah he might say something to the effect of spending time with friends or on his music, or preparing for his Australian movie he’s about to film…he’ll play it classy.

      • Ann says:

        He’s actually filming another movie before the Australia one. Mission Blacklist is coming up very soon, fortunately for him. I believe it starts filming in September in the middle east. Depending on when the shoot wraps, it may enable him to bag out of much of the Breaking Dawn promo, which would be aces for him at this point.

        The Rover starts in January. Probably good for him that he’ll be tied up with work for awhile.

  8. DanaG says:

    I won’t hold my breath. Rob never spoke of her before and he sure won’t now. I expect if anyone is stupid enough to ask he will just move on and ignore them. Did he really have a choice about doing the PR?

  9. Aussie girl says:

    I’m alittle bit over it to. Rob you are sooo welcome here in Australia. I’m sure there will be an Aussie girl here to make you sparkle again xxx

    • EllaDee says:

      He is welcomed in Brazil too!

      As long as he stays clear fron the insane twihards… they are crazier than usual here.

  10. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    OMG! OMG! I am glad Rob is going to be present in the press conference for his new movie next week. I just hope nobody asks him about his break up. Press just stay professional and ask questions about his movie and not Kristen.

  11. Dirtnap says:

    SPARKLES SPEAKS!

    And I wish to personally thank him for granting the interview to the folks at GMA and not to the Today Show. Another ratings blow to Matt Lauer’s minions. I love you even more now, Sparkles.

    • Ann says:

      Would have been awesome if he’d only grant the interview to Ann Curry.

    • hmmmm says:

      yes.

      • Dirtnap says:

        Dang …that WOULD have been good. I like the way you think, @Ann. With Curry lobbing the questions, that would have been the most sympathetic interview ever – a PR dream! ; )

    • Rory says:

      I laugh every time I think of that outrageous lie he told Lauer about going to the circus when he was a child. Pattinson told Lauer that there had been an accident with the clown car!

  12. AprilLadyBird83 says:

    The best revenge would be to outshine that girl and become one of the most wanted actors in Hollywood. Its only a mattered of time before her star will fade… she will not age well & is a horrible actress. At least we know how she gets her roles.

  13. mia girl says:

    Pattinson could have just done the red carpet and the general press conference at the premiere. But by also signing up for the GMA live interview, it shows that he really does have the character to put aside his personal issues and face the world to support the film. The guy is behaving like a professional.

    A lot of people who normally wouldnt watch a Pattinson interview will be watching, so if he can be his usual charming, funny self during this press tour, he should gain some new fans in the process.

  14. Mayday says:

    I think this whole thing is going to end up being great for his career. Things have a funny way of working out sometimes.

    I don’t think them being together in real life was good for anything except the Twilight franchise. I think their relationship made it difficult for non Twilight fans to see them for anything other than that.

  15. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    I could stare at that top picture all day…yum yum.

  16. Little Red says:

    I never really cared about either of them before, except in a “good on them for getting work outside of Twilight!” kind of way, but now I’m rooting for these crazy kids. I think my romantic radar is calibrated wrong! To sum up:

    Pre-cheating, I thought their whole relationship was just PR and did not care.

    Post-cheating: OMG THEIR LOVE IS REAL AND TRUEEEEE!

    *facepalm at self*

  17. anon says:

    He will not say anything direct. But will drop hint here and there wrapped in dry humor. should be good. He is witty.
