Amid his headline-grabbing romance woe with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson stays professional by not canceling his duty to promote his new film "Cosmopolis". While it has previously been rumored that Rob has pulled out of the upcoming thriller's press junket, the British actor's representative confirms that the report is fabricated.
Insisting that the "Bel Ami" actor hasn't canceled any of his commitments on the David Cronenberg-directed film, the rep says in a statement, "Cosmopolis is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting." The rep adds, "No confirmed engagements have been canceled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate."
Rumors that Rob has scrapped his "Cosmopolis" press duties spun wildly after ET Online stated that the English heartthrob has "just cancelled an upcoming U.S. press appearance to promote his film Cosmopolis" following Kristen's cheating scandal.
Though Rob's publicist has issued a statement to deny the report, it is still unclear whether or not the "Water for Elephants" actor will appear at the "Cosmopolis" premiere which has been scheduled to take place on August 13 in New York.
The studio has previously planned a press junket in Los Angeles over the August 10 weekend, but the event has now been scrapped. Rob himself is still expected to attend the Times Talks on August 15.
Based on a novel of the same title by Don DeLillo, "Cosmopolis" follows a day in the life of Rob's Eric Packer, a 28-year old billionaire who faces various unexpected troubles while traversing Manhattan in his stretch limo in order to get a haircut from his preferred barber. After being premiered at Cannes, the gritty thriller received positive to mixed early critical reactions.
The thriller is slated for an August 17 release Stateside. Back in May, the film was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, where Rob attended the event with Kristen on hand to support him.
