Ryan Seacrest's radio show came to a screeching halt last night after he asked "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson the most controversial, hard-nosed question in the history of questions ... what's the deal with you and Kristen Stewart?
As soon as Ryan asked the question -- apparently forbidden by the Twilight powers that be -- Pattinson's cold-blooded handler flipped out and pulled Robert right outta the chair.
Robert remained charming as he got up and left ... but the bottom line -- he still left.
“Robert Pattison is class act,” Seacrest Tweeted following the event. “However the rep he was with yanked him off the air and off the mic when when I asked about Kristen. Unreal!”
If I were him, I'd probably be a little upset. It's one thing to ask about the New Moon movie and his career, but I think personal life is just that - personal. Plus, if he and Kristen want to come out with a relationship that's their business. Either way it's not like any of the fans are ever going to be involved with either in a relationship. Any thinking other than that is just delusional.
Pattinson, 23, recently dished on his fans’ weird behavior at the recent London premiere of the Twilight sequel, which hits theaters November 20.
“There were girls who had scratched the side of their necks, so they were freshly bleeding when they came up to get a signature. They were like, ‘We did this for you’. I didn’t know what to say. ‘Thank you, guys?’” he said.
“This is my life. People know my name and ambush me in public and try to figure out what hotel I’m staying at. I have accepted it as real now, but it still feels surreal.”
“I was getting quite scared the other day,” Pattinson added. “When I go back to London, the only thing I’ve done all year will be to have gone around to cities and have people scream at me and stuff, and ask things like, ‘What’s it like to play the most beautiful person in the world?’ I feel like I have nothing to talk about to my friends any more. It’s going to really destroy me when I go back home.
“But it just makes me more and more conspicuous.
“I’m wearing two hoods, a hat and sunglasses, which kind of stands out in the middle of the night. So I’m learning to sprint.”
