Robert Pattinson Skirts The Kristen Stewart Issue On ‘Showbiz Tonight’ [PHOTOS & VIDEO]

They’re supposed to present together at the MTV VMAs in a few weeks, and we’ll have to see how that goes.  In the meantime, Robert Pattinson is making the press rounds, and doing it like a champ.

He and Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg appeared on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, and naturally, things took a turn towards Twilight and Kristen Stewart.

“Since the first Twilight you enter this kind of realm where everything is kind of weird,” Pattinson said in the interview. “You get stuff reported about you and it is weird.”

Cronenberg agreed.  “It’s a very abstract realm that doesn’t really have a lot to do with personal reality,” the director explained.  “People think they know what’s going on but they don’t really.”

What else did Pattinson say?

“You start having a total disassociation,” Pattinson, who was seen coming out of Soho House in New York last night (August 14th) added.
