If you’re one of the legion of Robert Pattinson fans who was hoping to get the scoop on how he’s doing and if he’s been talking to Kristen Stewart in the wake of the cheating scandal when he sat down with George Stefanopoulos on “Good Morning America,” you were in for some disappointment.
Stefanopoulos kicked the interview off by saying he had to ask about the elephant in the room — how is R-Patz doing and what does he want his fans to know about his personal life.
After making a joke about the caloric content of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, the gift given to Pattinson when he sat down for the interview, Robert says, “You get into [this business] to do movies. I’ve never been interested in trying to sell my personal life and that’s the reason why people bring it up.”
Pattinson continues, “I think if you start getting used to [the attention], it means you’ve gone crazy. It’s nice. It’s like being on the craziest theme park ride you’ve been on. It’s totally exciting, but at some point you have to have a break.”
The interview then turned to talk of Pattinson’s new movie “Cosmopolis,” which opens in limited release Friday, Aug. 17 and nationwide Friday, Aug. 24.
The 26-year-old actor is certainly entitled to his privacy, but we suspect “GMA” and the fans were a little disappointed not to have him open up a bit more. Perhaps Oprah can take a crack at him next.
