It was a big night for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart last night.
Beginning the first of many talk show dates as they promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Pattinson headed for Jimmy Kimmel Live while Stewart got cozy on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
First up was Stewart.
Wearing Christian Louboutin heels and a Peter Pilotto striped mini-dress, the actress charmed her way through the short interview.
Dropping more than a hint about her resumed relationship with Pattinson, the 22-year-old also shared her take on life as one of the most recognizable actresses on the planet.
When asked if she would miss playing Twilight’s Bella Swan, looking at the excitable studio audience Stewart joked,”No, especially not these guys like ever ever.”
Talking about fame, the star complimented the Japanese on their low-key approach to celebrity:
“I just got back from Tokyo and it is an entirely different way there. It’s like people recognize you, maybe they come within five feet and just are like [covering her mouth by way of example] — and I really, really, really dig that.”
But it was when Leno asked the actress about the Halloween mask she was recently seen in at a party last week that things turned risque.
“There were masks next to really weird sex toys, next to — like — fish flavored tootsie rolls, and I bought it all,” said Stewart. The “ow!” that followed left no-one in any doubt what she meant.
More laughs came when the actress pitched Breaking Dawn — Part 2’s plot.
“Well, popped one out. Pretty concerned about that. Me and Edward are doing quite well. People are trying to kill my baby but I am, like, super-spectacular now so I can take care of that — being a vampire.”
Of the much hyped ending to the finale installment, Stewart teased:
“It is so shocking, to be honest. I couldn’t be more inside of it. I couldn’t be more in the loop. Every time I see it or even think about it I get giddy. It freaks me out.”
Over at Kimmel, after walking a gauntlet of fans and flashbulbs, a certain Brit was in playful form. Self-deprecation, bendy legs, “ridiculous” socks, “clown” shoes, weird noises — Pattinson brought it all.
Revealing that he’d skydived during a recent press trip to Australia, the actor described it as, “something I’ve always wanted to do. That’s also how I want to die.”
Getting topical, Kimmel asked his guest if he felt left out of the current election fever to which Pattinson replied:
“I don’t like any kind of responsibility. I would vote for people like me to not be able to vote.”
After a brief clip from Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was shown, the 26-year-old said what he remembered most from his time on The Twilight Saga was the film crew carrying ‘boom’ microphones (said fur balls) everywhere.
A major surprise (for ‘Robsten’ watchers, that is) was the swoop visit Stewart paid to Kimmel’s Hollywood Boulevard studio. Waiting backstage while her beau was interviewed, the back-on couple left together.
Snapped boarding a private jet in Los Angeles today, the pair were headed for New York for yet another round of TV appearances.
After a summer of blazing headlines and online fury, there is something amazing about the fact that these two appear to be not only surviving but thriving. While some remain convinced the couple’s reconciliation is nothing more than a “showmance” to send a $ 2.5 billion franchise out on a series’ best, it seems the reality is kicking the cynics to the curb.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hits theaters on November 16.
