Last night, Jon Stewart went easy on Robert Pattinson, whose appearance on “The Daily Show” was his first since his ‘Twilight” co-star/girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, was busted publicly cheating on him with director Rupert Sanders. Jokingly (but sweetly) offering him a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, Stewart said that for young people, breaking up sometimes feels “like the would is ending … this is the first time I’ve seen the world react that way.” An awkward situation, graciously handled by both fellows.

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.”

Though I’m not really sure the way to get respect for your private life is to issue a public statement about cheating. [Crushable via Entertainment Weekly] [Photo: Getty]

Kristen’s longtime boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, is out of the picture, leaving all of the Twilight fans’ lives in shambles –- and Will Ferrell is no exception!
Will visited the set of “Conan” Thursday night to promote his new film, The Campaign, and while Will is usually a barrel of laughs, the comedian was visibly (and hilariously) distraught. Ferrell, not one to ‘hide’ his emotions, explained to Conan what had him so upset. Read more…
