Poor Robert Pattinson has been forced to giggle through yet another awkward interview mostly about his mental state post the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal -- this time revealing he is doing his best to disassociate from what is written about him.
Robert has been thrust even further into the spotlight following Kristen's confession of her "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders -- and unfortunately the scandal coincides with the press tour for Robert's new film Cosmopolis.
Not that anyone is talking about the flick!
Robert Pattinson Jokes On The Daily Show -- First Interview Since Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal
During a chat with U.S. network HLN's Showbiz Tonight, which aired on Tuesday night (14 August), the actor admitted he tries to take no notice of stories written about him.
The host started the stilted interview by asking, "Is Robert Pattinson ok?"
To which a visibly uncomfortable Robert responds simply with, "yeah."
The interviewer then pressed on asking if Rob finds it surreal to read articles about himself 'drinking and wallowing in misery', to which he replied, "Since the first Twilight, you enter this kind of realm where... you get stuff reported about you, and it's weird."

"You start having a total disassociation. I don't talk about that (personal life), loads of people just make it up anyway - it doesn't make any difference."
You can watch the awkward exchange below. What do you think? Should the media lay off Robert? Or does the public have a right to know about his private life?
