While sharing some Ben & Jerry's ice cream, Jon Stewart interviewed Robert Pattinson on "The Daily Show" on Aug. 13 and the actor tried his best to avoid any questions about the cheating scandal that went public with Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders.
"Are you all right?" the television host asked. "Is everything OK? I'm worried about you, and you're all right?"

Pattinson did not know how to answer the questions and instead, he kept on repeating his need for a publicist, one that would help him deal with scandal situations and how to respond to them.
"I'm going to sound like an idiot, but my biggest problem in my life is I'm cheap, and I didn't hire a publicist," Pattinson said. "And in every awkward interview, normally, actors get these things scripted. I'm going to hire a publicist."
"The Daily Show" interview on Monday was scheduled before the cheating scandal surfaced and was supposed to focus primarily on promoting Pattinson's new film "Cosmpolis," coming out on Friday. However, Stewart did not stray away from bringing up Pattinson's private life and trying to get him to speak about it.
"Listen, the last time I had a bad breakup, Ben and Jerry got me through some of the tougher times," the host told Pattinson. "So, I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about, 'Boy, you are better off. Kick her to the curb! Whatever!"
Pattinson laughed off most of the comments and made no direct reply to any of Stewart's questions.
"The Daily Show" was Pattinson's first interview since the scandal with Stewart and Rupert, her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, went public. Though Pattinson has yet to confirm on camera or in any interview if he has officially split from his "Twilight" costar and love interest, he most certainly did not correct Stewart during Monday's interview and the TV host's constant mention of the couple and the scandal surrounding them.
"When you are young and you break up, it's powerful and it feels like the world is ending," Stewart said. "This is the first time I have seen the world actually react that way. It's insanity. ... Here is my wish for you: That you get to handle your business in private, in your personal life, and I wish you all the best."
"Cosmpolis," which was very briefly mentioned during the interview, will be in theatres Aug. 17.
