Jon Stewart Comforts Robert Pattinson on "The Daily Show"

Posted Monday August 13, 2012 10:00 PM GMT

In his first interview since the tumultuous breakup with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson received quality, man-to-man comfort from political funnyman Jon Stewart.

The 26-year-old made a highly anticipated appearance on “The Daily Show,” where he was quickly greeted with a pint of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia and Caramel Sutra to heal his broken heart.

An audience member told Us Weekly, "Kristen's name was never even mentioned and it definitely seemed like Jon was giving him a break,” adding, “Jon brought out the ice cream for him and Rob to eat, almost like Jon was feeding it to Rob to help him get through a breakup . . . Jon didn't ask anything about Kristen but it was obvious that was what the ice cream was for.”

Although the “Twilight” hunk was at the Comedy Central show to talk about his new film “Cosmopolis,” he apparently seemed on edge and nervous, according to a source.

It was a busy night for Rob, as he also held his New York City premiere for the film at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
