I’ll just say this: I think this was the first full interview I’ve ever seen with Pattinson, which made the English accent somewhat jarring. However, he was charming, goofy, and a little snorty. I hope to God he doesn’t become the next Charming Potato: A guy we loathe that slowly ingratiates himself, because after this post and after this interview, he’s definitely growing on me.

Here are the highlights from Robert Pattinson’s first interview since his break-up with Kristen Stewart following her affair with her Rupert Sanders.

  • There was Ben & Jerry’s. Stewart began the interview by bringing out a couple of pints of ice cream. “We’re just two gals talking.” Then later, “I just thought we could talk about, you know, ‘Boy, you are better off, kick her to the curb.”

  • Pattinson revealed that “my biggest problem in my life is that I’m cheap, and I didn’t hire a publicist. And in every awkward interview,” he doesn’t have a script, like other actors. Pattinson acknowledged a need to hire a publicist.

    The “real issues” of the world are Twilight, so said Pattinson sarcastically.

  • Stewart: “When you’re young and you break-up, it feels like the world is ending. This is the first time I’ve ever seen the world actually act that way … here’s my wish for you. That you get to handle your business in private.”

  • The rest of the interview was about Pattinson’s new film, Cosmopolis, which even Stewart acknowledged that no one who tuned in cared about.
