Robert Pattinson stopped by the Today show Nov. 8 -- a day after his costar and on-again girlfriend Kristen Stewart appeared on the program -- to promote the fifth and final installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
After making some small talk about the film, co-anchor Savannah Guthrie put the 26-year-old actor in the hot seat, prompting him to open up about his rekindled romance with Stewart post-cheating scandal. (The actress, 22, had a fling with Rupert Sanders, her married Snow White and the Hunstman director, back in July.)
"So yesterday I asked Kristen if you two had gotten back together," Guthrie began, noting that Stewart had dodged the inquiry. "So now I want to ask you."
Pattinson then turned the question around, saying politely, "I want to ask, because we get asked it all the time. Who is actually asking? Is it in your contract?"
At that, the Today co-anchor backed off a little. "Does it get annoying?" she asked. "Is it a high price to pay? You've gotten these films, it's made you incredibly famous, there's been so much good with it -- but it is personal now."
