Robert Pattinson nursed his broken heart on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night the best way we all know how: With ice cream!
After Kristen Stewart very publicly (and, if you ask us, very stupidly) cheated on Robert Pattinson with her married director, the already super private star went into hiding, making his only public appearances to promote his new non-Twilight movie, Cosmopolis. He hadn’t said a word about a K-Stew split or her cheating scandal, but let’s be real: Jon Stewart gets people to talk, even if only a little bit, and he offered some insight and advice to Robert Pattinson about how to heal his broken heart.
Handing over a pint of Ben and Jerry’s, Jon Stewart told Robert Pattinson, “We’re just two gals talking.” Robert Pattinson can be notoriously and adorably awkward in interviews, and he was sheepish and charming–not at all awkward, especially given the circumstances–in this one. Jon Stewart offered, “What are we doing here? Are you all right? Is everything OK? I’m worried about you, and you’re all right.”
Robert Pattinson didn’t show a broken heart, but instead a dodgy sense of humor. “I’m trying to avoid eating this,” he said of his Karamel Sutra. “I’m going to split my Spanx.”
Watch the clip below. Robert Pattinson neither confirms nor denies that K-Stew gave him a broken heart, but it’s pretty obvious that he appreciated J-Stew’s efforts to cheer him up. Find out how Jon Stewart recommended Robert Pattinson move on from his broken heart. Hint: It doesn’t involve taking her back.
Of course, Robert Pattinson was actually there to promote his movie, so we get to see a clip of that, too. It looks nothing like Twilight, which, depending on your taste, is either awesome or jarring. We all need a pal like Jon Stewart.
Do you think Jon Stewart gave Robert Pattinson the right advice on how to deal with a broken heart? How do you recover from a broken heart? Do you think Robert Pattinson is handling himself well? Tell us in the comments!
