Robert Pattinson was on The Today Show this morning during which the host probed into his personal life. He was the cuckold in the cheating scandal, not the one who cheated, so Today’s Savannah Guthrie went pretty easy on the him. He sort of answered the questions, while being evasive but polite. In stark contrast to how Kristen Stewart answered similar questions the day prior.
Pattinson was thrown a few softballs during his interview. Asked about the franchise coming to an end, he responded: “[It's] the end of my youth… just a slow death from now.” Asked about the insufferable nickname “R-Patz,” he replied: “I don’t understand what the nickname culture is. If I could figure out a way to get rid of that, it’d be amazing. It does sound like an antacid tablet.” Asked about his relationship with his co-star girlfriend, Pattinson joked: “I want to ask because we get asked that all the time… it’s like, who is actually asking? Is it in your contract?” YES… yes it is. He acquiesced a little: “It doesn’t have to be [personal]. It only becomes personal if you answer it.” Here’s a clip.
By contrast, Stewart was on Today Show yesterday and gave a comparatively condescending and surly reply.
Guthrie asked “Kristen, you have so many fans and they will be mad at us if we don’t ask you… Are you back together with Robert Pattinson?” To which Stewart replied dismissively: “Funny you mention that. I’m going to just let people watch whatever little movie they think our lives are. Keep ‘em guessing, I always say.” Her demeanor is more apparent when you watch the clip.
Lastly, Taylor Lautner has given an even more direct reply when asked about cheating in relationships for the December 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine: ”To be honest,” he says, “I’ve never been involved in any of those situations, so I don’t know [if trust can be regained]… It would be just a guess and a shot in the dark, and I don’t want to give that if I haven’t even been there myself.”
Asked about getting back together with an ex-girlfriend, Lautner says: “[It's] absolutely possible. ”It depends on how long you were with that person. If it was a long, serious relationship, I think it’s quite easy to rekindle. I guess it depends on what damage has been done. There’s no ex out there who I’m not friends with today, and I’m extremely thankful for that.”
Lautner continues: ”Honesty and loyalty are key. If two people can be honest with each other about everything, that’s probably the biggest key to success. I like to think of myself as very loyal, and I love everyone I surround myself with, whether they’re friends or girlfriends or whatever. I love people.”
