Robert Pattinson Interviews on 'GMA,' Jodie Foster Defends Kristen Stewart (Video)
We still don't know how Robert Pattinson feels about the Kristen Stewart cheating saga, but at least we know never to trust him when it comes to reading food labels.
After indulging in some comfort ice cream on The Daily Show on Monday night, Pattinson appeared on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning. He was there ostensibly to promote his new thriller, Cosmopolis, but all ears were waiting for any words about Stewart. What they got was something a bit different, at least at first.
"I just want my fans to know," he teased, "Cinnamon Toast Crunch only has 30 calories a bowl in it."
Actually, it has 130 calories per 3/4-cup serving, with 30 calories from fat. And it often takes two servings to make a bowl.
On a more serious note, Pattinson did discuss his life as a paparazzi-hounded celebrity, which is tangentially connected to the Stewart saga.
“The weird thing is, I can’t really tell you what’s interesting about actors either,” he told George Stephanopoulos. “People don’t find the personal lives of people with much, much more power than any celebrity would have — don’t find their personal lives interesting. I think if you put the lives of people who controlled billions of dollars on the front news of every single paper, the world would be a better place. It’s the spin culture. If you took away publicists and things and people spoke for themselves, then they’d have to be responsible for their words.”
Meanwhile, Jodie Foster made much the same point in an essay she wrote for The Daily Beast, in defense of Stewart, her Panic Room co-star.
"I’ve said it before and I will say it again: If I were a young actor today I would quit before I started," she wrote. "If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.
"Sarah Tobias would never have danced before her rapists in The Accused," Foster continued. "Clarice would never have shared the awful screaming of the lambs to Dr. Lecter. Another actress might surely have taken my place, opened her soul to create those characters, surrendered her vulnerabilities. But would she have survived the paparazzi peering into her windows, the online harassment, the public humiliations, without overdosing in a hotel room or sticking her face with needles until she became unrecognizable even to herself?"
Others in Hollywood also rushed to Stewart's defense, once it was reported by The Hollywood Reporter that she will not be part of the potential Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.
Both Sophia Bush and Clark Gregg reacted quite strongly over Twitter; Bush wrote, "When men cheat they don't lose their jobs. #FuckedUp," while Gregg responded to the news by saying, "That's not sexist at all. #Doubleassstandard."
