The actress did a 30-minute live webcast to promote Balenciaga's new Florabotanica perfume, and does not mention Pattinson at all
(Yahoo!) - Kristen Stewart's first live interview since she cheated on longtime boyfriend Robert Pattinson in July was awkward to say the least, and it only lasted about half as long as it was supposed to! The live webcast was advertised as a 30-minute event to promote Balenciaga's new Florabotanica perfume, but the chat was over after about 16 minutes. Fans submitted more than 5,000 questions for the 22-year-old "Twilight" star about subjects as varied as Pattinson, her favorite music, and her decision to do her first endorsement deal with the high-fashion brand. However, the interviewer stuck to a dozen or so questions that were strictly focused on the fragrance. Sorry, RPattz fans!
But even talking about perfume proved to be difficult for Stewart, who often stammered and appeared to be at a loss for words during the chat. "Luckily, I like the smell of the fragrance, so I don't have to lie about that, and that's great!" she said at one point. She also described the type of person who usually likes the Balenciaga label. "I feel like it does draw sort of fearless people," she noted. "I just find that those are the kind of people who are attracted to Balenciaga. Even in this [fragrance], there's a fearlessness to it ... it's definitely not to be denied." When the friendly interviewer asked if Stewart included herself in this group, she was quick to answer. "Damn right," the starlet said with a laugh. "Yeah, I hope so. I mean, God, I try to do that every day."
