Even though he's currently in hiding, believed to be nursing his broken heart after Kristen Stewart cheated on him, Robert Pattinson has announced his intention of continuing his promo tour for his latest film, the drama “Cosmopolis.” Kristen won't be at any of the events, though. Radar Online
has learned from someone close to camp Pattinson that Stewart has literally been “banned” from the premiere
and the afterparty of his film, after the recent cheating scandal.
After she publicly apologized to him for cheating on him with Rupert Sanders, the married director of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” she's been trying to make contact with Robert and perhaps mend their broken relationship.
Because he'd been dodging her calls and refusing to reply to her texts, she will probably try to speak to him whenever he comes out in public next – which happens to be at the premiere of “Cosmopolis.”
Well, not so if his people make sure to keep her out of his way.
“Kristen Stewart has been banished from attending Robert Pattinson’s up and coming New York movie premiere. Security staff have been told to keep K-Stew, 22, away from the red carpet and after party for the Cosmopolis premiere on August 13, in fear she may use it as an excuse to speak with R-Pattz in person,” Radar writes.
The same report argues that movie studio bosses fear that, by allowing Kristen at the premiere, they might allow the scandal to steal the limelight from Robert's film, one with which he stands excellent odds of establishing himself as a serious actor and not just a heartthrob. The film
premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year to overall positive reviews.
“Security was briefed and they were told that Kristen is not allowed anywhere near the red carpet or the after party. The decision was made because Robert just doesn’t want to see her. There were fears that she could use it as a chance to talk to him in person and that sort of drama is not wanted at the premiere,” an insider is quoted as saying.
“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,” adds the spy.
“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 than it already will be,” the source further says.
Directed by David Cronenberg, “Cosmopolis” sees Pattinson playing a corrupt young playboy billionaire, in a world as corrupt as himself.
