Wearing Gucci is one way to make an ex jealous. Robert Pattinson began his publicity rounds at the New York premiere of Cosmopolis last night – his first appearance since news broke of Kristen Stewart’s scandalous affair with director Rupert Sanders. The actor wore a classic two-button suit from Gucci’s Cruise 2013 collection, accessorized with a slim black tie and black leather lace-up shoes (you show her, Rpatz!).
Pattinson also stopped by The Daily Show, where host John Stewart made light of the situation by joking: “Boy, you are better off. Kick her to the curb!” The two ate ice cream and Pattinson also revealed that he was alone in handling the very public scandal. “My biggest problem in my life is I’m cheap, and I didn’t hire a publicist,” laughed Pattinson. Yikes.
The actor seemed in good spirits, though, and will continue doing publicity for his film Cosmopolis. And if he plans on wearing more Gucci throughout the campaign trail, something tells us he’ll be the one having the last laugh. – Christian Allaire
