The actress shocked fans of the vampire franchise last month (Jul12) when she confessed to an "indiscretion" with married moviemaker Rupert Sanders.
Pattinson and Stewart had reportedly decided to avoid each other by pulling out of appearances at four events in the U.S., but a spokesman for Pattinson insists the rumour is untrue, claiming the actor was never scheduled to attend the conventions.
The rep tells GossipCop.com, "We have not cancelled any confirmed professional appearances for Robert. Specifically, he was never invited or set to attend these events."
Stewart stunned devotees of the fantasy franchise last month (Jul12) when she admitted to an "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders behind the back of her boyfriend and co-star Pattinson.
She has been lying low ever since, while Pattinson braved the spotlight last week (ends18Aug12) for a round of press duties for his new film Cosmopolis.
However, the pair, who are reportedly no long dating, have decided to avoid each other by not attending the final four conventions in Detroit, Los Angeles and New Jersey over the coming months.
A spokesperson for Creation Entertainment, the company behind the events, says, "Although Rob, Kristen and Taylor (Lautner) will not be with us this time out we will have a super lineup of other 'Twilight' stars and the weekend will be filled with special events, movie prop and costume displays, contests, panels, auctions, parties, exclusive merchandise, music and much more, including some surprises!"
The film's male stars - Sam Riley, Tom Sturridge and Danny Morgan - attended the glitzy event at the British capital's Somerset House without their leading lady, after she decided not to fly to the U.K. to help promote the movie.
Stewart hit headlines last month (Jul12) when she admitted to an "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders behind the back of her boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson and she has been lying low ever since.
When asked about Stewart's absence from the premiere, her co-star Morgan said the actress was upset she wasn't able to attend, telling website Heatworld.com, "It's a shame. We would have all loved her to be here and it would've been great and I know she's sad she can't be here.
"She would've loved to be here because I know she's so proud of this film and her performance in it and she's amazing in it. People will be blown away by it. She's incredible."
Stewart will reportedly return to the spotlight when On The Road is showcased at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada next month (Sep12).
The 22 year old has been lying low since confessing to cheating on her Twilight co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson with married director Rupert Sanders last month (Jul12), but she will have to face the media and the public once again in September as she begins promoting her latest film, On the Road.
Stewart, who portrays Marylou in the big screen adapatation of Jack Kerouac's classic novel, has been confirmed to attend the annual Toronto event alongside castmates Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams and Garrett Hedlund, reports People.com.
On the Road will premiere at the festival, which begins on 6 September (12) and runs for 10 days.
Pattinson has already had to put his personal troubles aside and focus on work - he hit the red carpet for the New York premiere of his new movie Cosmopolis on Monday (13Aug12) and has continued to fulfill all of his press commitments since.
He split from Stewart after news of her "indiscretion" broke last month and has refused to even mention her name in TV appearances this week.
The Twilight star has been a regular in the headlines since shooting to fame in the vampire movie franchise, but the tabloid frenzy reached a peak last month (Jul12) when his co-star and girlfriend Kristen Stewart confessed to an "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders.
Despite the scandal, Pattinson decided not to cancel planned interviews to promote his new movie Cosmopolis, but he has refused to talk about his romantic problems, insisting he has "never been interested in trying to sell" details of his personal life.
However, the actor admits he is constantly reading what is being written about him and compares his love for gossip to an "addiction".
In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, he says, "Yeah, I read it. It's my life. You sort of want to read it. You feel like you need to read it. It's one of those things where you keep picking the scab. You know you shouldn't be doing it. But it's a weird kind of addiction. You desperately want to stop."
The Twilight star played the female lead in the fantasy action blockbuster, and Universal studio bosses announced a follow-up after it grossed almost $400 million (£250 million) worldwide.
However, the next installment of the film franchise was thrown into doubt last month (Jul12) when Stewart was caught romancing married director Rupert Sanders behind her boyfriend Robert Pattinson's back.
Sanders was recently confirmed as the director of the Snow White sequel, which Stewart had already signed up for - but, on Tuesday (14Aug12), writers at The Hollywood Reporter published an article claiming the actress had since been axed.
The report alleged the movie's plot would now shift its focus to The Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, with Charlize Theron reprising her role as the Evil Queen.
However, a Universal representative spoke out on Wednesday (15Aug12) to clear up the rumours, insisting studio executives have yet to make an official decision on the direction of the next storyline.
The spokesperson tells UsMagazine.com, "We are exploring options to continue the franchise and no decisions have been made."
Foster aired her thoughts on the cheating scandal surrounding the Twilight star in a lengthy commentary for news website TheDailyBeast.com on Wednesday (15Aug12), blasting the media for constantly hounding Stewart as she tries to deal with the public fall-out from her "indiscretion" with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
The Oscar winner, a former child star herself, sympathised with Stewart's personal troubles, writing, "There’s no guilt in acknowledging the human interest in public linens. It’s as old as the hills. Lift up beautiful young people like gods and then pull them down to earth to gaze at their seams. See, they’re just like us. But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process."
Foster also urged Stewart to stay strong, ignore the media storm and battle through her problems to rebuild her career - and the 49 year old's words of advice have won the movie veteran praise from the likes of Lowe and Glee creator Murphy.
Taking to his Twitter.com page, Lowe writes, "Love to see Jodie Foster trending (a hot topic on Twitter). She is what all actors should aspire to be. Talented. Low-key. Smart. Loyal."
Murphy brands her essay "amazing" and urges fans to check it out, while former One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush tweets, "Jodie Foster has some great things to say about young Hollywood & ridiculous KS (Kristen Stewart) gossip. What an inspiring woman."
Stewart's revelation last month (Jul12) appears to have ended her three-year romance with British actor Robert Pattinson.
The Twilight star stunned Hollywood last month (Jul12) after admitting to an "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders.
The revelation has turned her into a target for bitter fans and members of the press alike, who have dubbed her a "trampire" for betraying her boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
Foster, a former child star herself, sympathises with Stewart, who played her daughter in Panic Room, and insists she should not have to deal with the intrusive media.
In a lengthy article posted on news website TheDailyBeast.com, Foster recalls the moment she met a happy, sociable 11-year-old Stewart on the set of 2002 film Panic Room, admitting, "I grew to love that kid."
And she fears the stresses and strains of life in the spotlight have taken their toll on the actress.
Foster adds, "A beautiful young woman strides down the sidewalk alone, head down, hands drawn into fists. She's walking fast, darting around huge men with black cameras thrusting at her mouth and chest. 'Kristen, how do you feel?' 'Smile Kris!' 'Hey, hey, did you get her?' 'I got her. I got her!' The young woman doesn't cry. F**k no. She doesn't look up. She's learned. She keeps her head down, her shades on, fists in her pockets. Don't speak. Don't look. Don't cry."
Wrapping up her commentary piece, the Hollywood veteran urges Stewart to fight through the tough times - because surviving a media storm and coming back stronger is the best way to overcome adversity.
She continues, "Eventually this all passes. The public horrors of today eventually blow away. And yes, you are changed by the awful wake of reckoning they leave behind. You trust less. You calculate your steps. You survive.
"Hopefully in the process you don't lose your ability to throw your arms in the air again and spin in wild abandon. That is the ultimate F.U. and - finally - the most beautiful survival tool of all. Don't let them take that away from you."
The British hunk was left heartbroken last month (Jul12) when his Twilight co-star and girlfriend Kristen Stewart confessed to an "indiscretion" with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
The revelation appears to have ended the young couple's three-year romance, but Pattinson refused to let the heartache interfere with his promotional duties and on Monday (13Aug12) he appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, accepting a pint of ice cream from the host in order to drown his sorrows.
On Wednesday, Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos copied Stewart's tactic and tried to butter up the 26 year old with a box of his favourite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, before turning to the scandal.
He said, "I've got to get the elephant in the room out of the way, everybody wants to know how are you doing and what do you want your fans to know about what's going on in your personal life?"
But Pattinson refused to bite, telling Stephanopoulos, "I'd like my fans to know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch only has 30 calories a bowl... I don't know, pretty much everything that comes out of my mouth is irrelevant."
When the journalist continued to press the issue, the actor again dodged the subject and redirected the conversation to his new movie Cosmopolis.
He added, "You go into it (showbusiness) to do movies, I've never been interested in trying to sell my personal life, and that's really the only reason people bring it up. The reason you go on TV is to promote movies."
The British actor found himself in the headlines last month (Jul12) when his Twilight co-star and girlfriend Kristen Stewart confessed to an "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders behind Pattinson's back.
The revelation appears to have ended the young couple's three-year romance, but Pattinson is refusing to let the personal heartache interfere with his promotional duties for his new film Cosmopolis, and has sat down for interviews as scheduled this week (begs13Aug12).
During a chat with U.S. network HLN's Showbiz Tonight, which aired on Tuesday night (14Aug12), the actor admitted he tries to take no notice of stories written about him.
Pattinson says, "Since the first Twilight, you enter this kind of realm where... you get stuff reported about you, and it's weird.
"You start having a total disassociation. I don't talk about that (personal life), loads of people just make it up anyway - it doesn't make any difference."
