Robert Pattinson on The Daily Show: All Class

The opportunity was there for Robert Pattinson last night.Robert Pattinson Cosmopolis Premiere Pic

Making his first public appearance since news of Kristen Stewart cheating on him with Rupert Sanders broke, the actor appeared as a guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

And the host good-naturedly broached the topic right away, asking Pattinson what he's been up to and adding: "Are you all right? Is everything OK? I'm worried about you."

Did Rob take the bait? Did he throw Stewart under a bus on national television?

Robert Pattinson and Jon Stewart

Nope.

"My biggest problem in my life is I'm cheap, and I didn't hire a publicist," Pattinson replied. "I'm going to hire a publicist."

Stewart then broke out some Ben & Jerry's and tried to bond with the handsome star.

"Now, we're just a couple of gals talking," Stewart said. "All right... Tell me everything."

Pattinson went along with the joke, laughing about splitting open his Spanx and only grew serious after Stewart noted that - for young people - going through a breakup often feels like the end of the world. To this, Robert simply responded:

"It is."

But he proceeded to tell the audience it was okay and no one should feel sorry for him. Talk then turned to the film Pattinson was there to promote, Cosmopolis.

It was a deftly handled interview on both sides, with the Stewart-sized elephant in the room acknowledged in a funny, classy way... given the circumstances. Watch the full exchange below.

Well he sure has shown that he isn't the kind to bad mouth an ex. I haven't heard him mention anything negative about her. That shows he has class and isn't a hateful person. He's not gay. She knows she messed up she admitted it, but he's hurt and it's going to take time for him to heal, so he's not going to take her back right away. He may if he finds it in his heart to forgive her. But until then he's seems to be doing a good job of staying focused on his career and dealing with things with her in a professional way. I wish him well.

I applaude Robert Pattinson for being a man and not talking bad about Kristen I wish all men was like that.

I'm really happy to see that their is still classy gentlemen out there. He had every chance to throw their relationship under the bus, but he remained classy. Oh @ Doh: just because your generation has no class or understanding of what privacy and respect is, dosen't make a man gay because he chooses not to make his Ex look worse then she already does.

I must admit, I was a little surprised that Jon Stewart was baiting him as much as he was last night. I don't think he wanted RPatz to necessarily "bash" Kristen Stewart, but, maybe just admit that he was hurt/upset, but, doing ok... I had to laugh when Jon Stewart said, "Boy, you can do so much better, kick her to the curb." That was pretty funny--and, true... RPatz was a class act throughout the whole interview... I don't think he needs to waste money on a publicist, he's doing just fine on his own...

Come on it is so obvious he is gay as a blade and could not keep it up and I'm sure Kristen was not going to stand for that very long. The next relationship u will see him in will be with a boyfriend. He must hang out at gay bars.

He is a "class act." One can only hope that Kristen will recognize that her indiscretion was not only detrimental to her career, but to her self respect. It's quite obvious that Rob was the mature one in their relationship. I wish them both happiness and success in the future.~0:-)
