Video: Robert Pattinson Gives His First Semi-Direct Answer To A Question About Kristen Stewart

Last night at a Q+A session hosted by The New York Times, Robert Pattinson gave the first direct answer he’s ever given when asked about his world-ending breakup with Kristen Stewart. Also, David Cronenberg was there and talked a lot about his new film Cosmopolis, global financial markets, and Hegelian philosophy…blah blah blah, let’s get to the juicy part.

When asked by journalist David Carr (around the 52:00 mark) why he thinks people are so obsessed with his personal life, Rob managed to spit out the somewhat clever answer that America really wants a royal family. “It’s a meritocratic version,” he began, then, ”it’s a meritocratic version of it, sort of…actually, no it’s not at all, it’s almost totally random.” Deciding he was just going to fucking go there, David Carr asked, “So if you and Kristen have trouble, it’s like Charles and Di having trouble?” This made the Twihards in the audience boo, but after just a little bit of flustered stuttering, Rob replied, “I wouldn’t go that far.”

Did he just acknowledge that this is happening?!?! OMFG! It’s not much, but it’s the first time he has responded in any way, shape or form to a question about his breakup. (Not counting diversionary tactics, which are a response of sorts.) I’m assuming it’s because he wasn’t given any food to mumble into. They don’t call it “the paper of record” for nothing.

That said, it’s a little upsetting that The New York Times cares about Robsten at all. But the fact that a roomful of Twihards got to hear David Cronenberg talk about Hegel completely makes up for it.

    Do they even know what he meant? He meant that the media surrounding Prince Charles and Princess Di was atrocious!!!! He was saying that their break up will not go that far and it resulted in Princess Di’s death!!!

    “Did he just acknowledge that this is happening” what is happening? That guy was a jerk, its so unprofessional to bring up private stuff. Im glad he was booed. To bad people didnt at the Dailey show and GMA. Josh Horowitz is alot more respectable and notice how calm RP was in that interview!! I think it funny he mentioned that actors arnt interesting andthe paps should follow bankers etc around!! Hey Dillinger 910 I thought you believed it is all a PR stunt?? oh well

    “I wouldnt go that far” meaning, I wouldnt go as far as to compare me and kristen (and the media attention surrounding us) to that of prince and princess
