Rob, you TOTALLY put your fans first when you decided to follow through with your television interviews on ‘Good Morning America’ and ‘The Daily Show’ — even though you’re still reeling from heartbreak over Kristen Stewart’s affair. Find out why I’m so PROUD of Rob!
Rob, 26, appeared on both The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as well as Good Morning America, on August 13 and 15 respectively, where he was asked to address Kristen Stewart’s affair during both segments. Not only did Rob gracefully answer the questions, but he managed to crack a smile here and there despite his alleged heartache.
Rob could have easily abandoned the promotion of Cosmopolis along with his fans by lodging himself in bed, under the covers — for the next few weeks. But instead, Rob greased up his hair, appearing to have shed a few pounds, and threw on the best-looking designer suit I’ve ever seen him wear!
Not only did Rob seem courageous and brave by subjecting himself to questions about his personal life, but he sent a clear message to his fans: Thank you for your support — I’m here for you.
When George Stephanopoulos asked Rob to address his personal troubles, Rob picked a general approach to the inquiry. “I’ve never been interested in selling my personal life, and that’s really the only reason people bring [my relationship] up,” he said on Good Morning America, in between stretches of awkwardly shifting the conversation to a box of cereal.
Rob was offered snacks such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch on GMA and Ben n’ Jerrys on The Daily Show (comfort food often consumed during emotional moments in life). While the shows’ hosts were simply trying to bring humor to the situation with good intentions, Rob is ultimately being humiliated even more due to Kristen’s affair! How embarrassing is it to offer Rob some ice cream to drown his sorrows in — on live television! This is another reason why I think Rob put his fans before his feelings and chances for embarrassment.
Rob similarly dodged any queries about the scandal on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, saying, “Now I’m going to sound like an idiot. My biggest problem in my life is I’m cheap. I didn’t hire a publicist. And in every awkward interview, normally actors get these things scripted.”
Poor, Rob. Hopefully his fans appreciate his strength. Rob put himself out there this week and he deserves all the fan support he can get!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did Rob go above and beyond by appearing on live television this week?
