Fulfilling his promise to attend the promotional event for his upcoming movie, Robert Pattinson made his first public appearance since his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal at the New York premiere of "Cosmopolis". The British heartthrob was quickly mobbed by shutterbugs as he stepped on the red carpet that rolled out at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday evening, August 13.
Looking handsome in a tailored blue Gucci suit that he paired with a black tie, the leading man of the "Twilight Saga" film franchise was all smiles as he posed for the swarming cameramen. He was joined by co-star Paul Giamatti, who looked dapper in a traditional two-piece suit and a tieless white shirt.
Also spotted on the red carpet were Emily Hampshire who kept it simple in a gray mini dress, Angela Martini who looked chic in a white cut-out dress, Shamone Jardim who oozed sexiness in an asymmetric number, and Carrie Keagan who brought color with her purple dress. Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo also attended the event, looking gorgeous in a skin-tight red dress.
The special screening aside, Pattinson has been scheduled to appear in a number of events to promote the David Cronenberg-directed thriller. He would appear on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" later after the premiere, ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, and stop by "Good Morning America" on the following day.
Scheduled to open in the U.S. cinemas on Friday, August 17, "Cosmopolis" revolves around Pattinson'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.
