No. I wouldn't go that far. Robert Pattinson's fans jump to his defense when a reporter goes a little too far and brings up Kristen. Hey there, I'm Lauren Bradshaw. We have your look at the fan reaction along with the latest photos of Robert and Kristen from before all this happened, with some new stills from Breaking Dawn part two. It's all in this PopSugar Rush. So what is it about America and fame? I mean you've been at the heart of it. I think it's because America really wants to have a Royal Family. Our celebrities just like royals? They're our version of royals, at least according to Robert Pattinson. The actor went on the New York Times series Times Talks yesterday with his Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg. He answered questions about the film and fame, but then interviewer David Carr made this mistake. So if you and Kristen have trouble, it's like Charles and Di having trouble. Or it's. I think this would lead to. Next question. Next question. I wouldn't go that far. PopSugar editor, Lauren Turner is joining me now to talk more about it, quite the reaction from the fans there, right? It really was. Yeah, the fans quickly jumped to Rob's defense and they were even shouting, "Next question. Next question.", from the crowd. And it wasn't really long interview, almost an hour and a half, and that was really the only question that was asked about that subject. The rest of the time they spent talking about the film. Director David Cronenberg said, he was just praising Rob and his work. And said that he had watched all of his interviews and all of his movies before casting him and just loved his charisma.Well , and what did you think about Robert's reaction to the mention of Kristen during the interview? I thought it was kind of more of the same what we've been seeing all week. He just wants to laugh it off, make light of it, and move on the next question. Okay. Well there have been rumors going around about maybe a possible reconciliation between Robert and Kristen. I mean who's to say what's gonna happen for sure. Right. But we are seeing them together today onscreen and some new stills from Breaking Dawn Part 2, so tell us about those. So Rob and Kristen are looking very affectionate as Edward and Bella. They're onscreen with their daughter, Mackenzie Foy and some of the other castmates and they're looking really cute. Yeah, I mean I have to say that some of the more romantic photos makes me a little nostalgic and sad given all that's happened. It does, but we probably should remember what director Bill Condon said that the fans are gonna have to separate Rob and Kristen from these characters. Okay. Well, we've seen Robert out and about. Now, he's in public. What about Kristen, when is her next public appearance gonna be, do we know? Well there are reports that she's gonna be at the Toronto Film Festival next month for her film On The Road, and we've known that On The Road was gonna screen there, but maybe now we'll get to see her too. Okay. We'll definitely be watching for that. Thanks, Lauren. Thank you. And Robert has one more appearance tonight to promote Cosmopolis. He's going to be on MTV premiering a new clip from the movie, and then he'll also have an interview with afterwards, so be sure to tune in for that. I'm Lauren Bradshaw, and I'll see you next time on PopSugar Rush.
