VIDEO: Robert Pattinson eats ice cream on ‘Daily Show,’ dodges K-Stew questions

Pattinson looked like he could use a couple extra pints of ice cream.

In the most anticlimactic interview to ever take place on the “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart wished actor Robert Pattinson his privacy regarding the breakup that everyone is talking about, which also served as the entire reason anyone was watching the interview.

It started off promising enough: “So…. what have you been up to?” Stewart joked before pulling out a couple of pints of ice cream to share with Pattinson.

The gaunt-looking “Twilight” star awkwardly dodged questions about his very public recent breakup with Kristin Stewart, who was caught on camera canoodling with the married director of “Snow White.”

Instead, Pattinson said,”My biggest problem in life is that I’m cheap and I didn’t hire a publicist.”

Hmm. Really?

Blah, blah and a couple of spoonfuls of Ben & Jerry’s later, Jon Stewart bored us all out of minds by saying, “Here is my wish for you. That you get to handle your business is private, in your personal life, and I wish you all the best.”

From there, the two went on to discuss the very mundane subject of Pattinsons’ new film “Cosmopolis,” which is “physically impossible” to explain, according to him. Even Jon Stewart had to admit that this topic was definitely a buzz kill.

“Is there anything that you want to say, now that everyone who was interested in what you were going to say a few minutes ago has turned off the TV?” Stewart jokingly (but seriously) asked. “As soon as we started talking about the movie they just went, ‘I’m gonna go make a sandwich.’”

From there, Pattinson said he hoped the make the opening of “Cosmopolis” bigger than “The Dark Knight.”

Has this breakup made R-Patz completely delusional?
