ETOnline editor Jarett Wieselman has just announced that Rob has pulled out of the press junket scheduled for ‘Cosmopolis’ on August 11th. It is unclear whether Rob will be in attendance for the premiere on the 13th which he had not been previously confirmed for, or the Q&A on the 15th which he had previously been confirmed for.
More from the ETOnline website:
It seems Robert Pattinson isn’t quite ready to face the media in the wake of girlfriend Kristen Stewart’s cheating scandal.
The reclusive star, who was recently spotted in his native U.K. following the events of last Wednesday, just cancelled an upcoming U.S. press appearance in to promote his film Cosmopolis.
No word yet on whether or not Pattinson will appear at the premiere scheduled for August 13 in New York City.
Rob’s rep has released a statement via GossipCop:
A rep for the actor tells Gossip Cop, “Cosmopolis is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting.
“No confirmed engagements have been canceled,” says the rep, adding, “Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate.”
And from EOnline:
The studio apparently had tentatively scheduled a press junket in L.A. for the movie over the Aug. 10 weekend, but the plans have now been scrapped, according to a studio rep.
Having not heard any news of Rob appearing in the US for Cosmopolis press prior to the Q&A on the 15th, it seems that he was never confirmed to participate in a press junket.
