Kristen Stewart Shut Out Of Robert Pattinson's 'Cosmopolis' Premiereby: Posted:
Hide in New York City where you may, Kristen Stewart. Wander Times Square. Score some Broadway tickets. Take in a Yankees or Mets game.
The Big Apple is your oyster, your big pillow on which to cry your eyes out over fracturing your relationship. That said, make yourself scarce Aug. 13 from Robert Pattinson's NYC "Cosmopolis" premiere.
Hired security has specific orders to keep the 22-year-old Stewart off estranged boyfriend and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" co-star Pattinson's red carpet, RadarOnline.com reported Friday morning.
Summit Entertainment may be insisting the pair stand side-by-side to promote Nov. 16's concluding "Twilight" chapter despite Stewart's recent admission to cheating on Pattinson with her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, sure. But in the wake of her exile from the pair's Los Angeles home following the scandal, the orchestrators of the premiere event fear Stewart would try cornering Pattinson to chat.
Rumor has it he's steadfastly wanted nothing to do with her since her unfaithful admission aside from a few cell phone exchanges.
"There's also the fact that if she did attend, it would distract from the film premiere itself and the movie bosses are not interested in that sort of publicity," a source told Radar. "It's going to be Robert's first public appearance since the scandal broke - and they really want to make it less of a media circus that it already will be."
"Less" of a media circus? Well, good luck with that. Nothing's going to make this a lesser circus. Best case scenario, it's kept from becoming bigger. Pattinson may as well start steeling himself now. The "Cosmopolis" red-carpet walk will be but light sparring before the 12-round, prize-fight paparazzi beating he and Stewart combined will be taking when Summit kicks up the "Breaking Dawn" hype tour.
In a display that the Universe has itself one sick sense of humor, director David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" features Pattinson as a billionaire whose life quickly, piece-by-piece falls apart in Manhattan - including his marriage's furthered collapse - as he rides somberly across Manhattan in a limousine.
