Robert Pattinson is definitely ready to laugh again — and then some! — as demonstrated Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The British star, 26, giggled and joked throughout his live interview, with no mention of Kristen Stewart or the cheating scandal that shattered their relationship last month.
Kimmel (who made no effort to broach the topic of 22-year-old Stewart”s betrayal and its aftermath) noted to Pattinson that he said he was “homeless,” without permanent L.A. digs, the last time he chatted on JKL.
“I still am,” joked Pattinson, who had shared a posh bungalow in L.A.”s Los Feliz neighborhood with Stewart. Both Pattinson and Stewart have steered clear of that love nest since her revealed July 17 fling with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “No, I rented this archway and I just live behind it. In one of those trash cans,” Pattinson said.
Another way Pattinson is not living-so-large “I buy everything off Craigslist,” Pattinson explained, adding that he recently ventured to gritty Chino Hills, Calif. to buy a car for $2500.
The good-natured Cosmopolis star also revealed that he recently stumbled upon an area in L.A. notorious for “dogging” — where men in parked cars covertly cruise for sex.
“I used to turn up at this parking lot lookin” at everyone like, “Why are all these guys sittin” around in their cars all the time” And I”m goin” there everyday kinda thinkin” nothing of it, coming out in my little Lycra pants, and one day there was a big raid,” he explained.
Kimmel likened one scene in Cosmopolis to a “prostate exam,” and Pattinson seemed “upset” during the filmed encounter.
“Someone was telling me about this vein that comes out of my forehead that only ever happens when very good things happen or very, very bad things,” Pattinson said.
Stewart, by all accounts, is not feeling quite so cheery. Photographed for the first time Aug. 20 in L.A. since the scandal broke, “she isn”t sleeping and she stays up all night crying,” a source tells the new Our employees, out now. “She”s close to a total meltdown.”
