Robert Pattinson will appear on The Daily Show Monday, August 13th, two days before his live sit-down with Good Morning America.  We expect Jon Stewart to steer the conversation away from the recent Kristen Stewart-Rupert Sanders cheating scandal, keeping it light and focused on other topics.  Leave the hard-hitting questions for GMA, and let us laugh, Mr. Stewart.

“Robert Pattinson is confirmed to appear as a guest on The Daily Show this Monday, Aug. 13, to promote his new movie,” a show rep told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.  Pattinson will also premiere the David Cronenberg-directed flick in New York that night, and will speak to reporters on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly nabbed an exclusive from Breaking Dawn – Part 2 director Bill Condon

“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” Condon told the magazine. “Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”

Well said.

Is Summit a bit nervous about promoting the last Twilight installment?  If they are, it’s not showing.  “While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead,” Summit’s head of worldwide marketing Nancy Kirkpatrick told Entertainment Weekly.
