He has two films to promote
It just got a little nicer to be in Nice. Robert Pattinson arrived Friday in the French Riviera and was immediately set upon by fans at the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport who were anxious for a glimpse of the handsome star, who despite being used to the attention still managed to look a bit startled. The British actor had his shades on and was toting a copy of the Independent newspaper. A couple of bodyguards warded off his admirers.
Pattinson is in town to attend the Cannes Film Festival, which kicked off Wednesday, on behalf of not one, but two films.
The Rover, the dystopian crime drama he shot in Australia costarring Guy Pearce and from a screenplay co-written by Joel Edgerton, screens May 18, while the David Cronenberg-directed Maps to the Stars premieres the following night.
While there are plenty of stars for him to be hobnobbing with on the Croisette, not least of which being his Maps costars Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack and Carrie Fisher, there is an actress he'll probably miss seeing like a ship in the night.
So we can only wonder if Kristen Stewart is coming last minute to avoid seeing her ex-boyfriend Rob Pattinson or if that is just how her schedule allows. Fans of the two as a couple can only hope for a reunion of the two stars but honestly I think that ship has sailed and the two will not be getting back together any time soon.
