With Kristen Stewart ducking out of the London premiere of 'On The Road' it was left to Robert Pattinson's best friend Tom Sturridge, who co-stars in the movie with the actress to answer questions over the status of their relationship.
The 22 year-old, who is said to be close to Sturridge as well was caught kissing married director Rupert Sanders in Los Angeles last month. Since the scandal she has not been seen, but did issue a grovelling apology for her actions calling the fling a “momentary indiscretion” while proclaiming her love for boyfriend Rob.
The 'Twilight' hunk's friends are reportedly urging him to break up with the actress and judging from Tom's reaction to the mention of her name it seems the subject of Kristen is something he isn't happy about.
Speaking to Entertainmentwise at the premiere in London last night Tom couldn't hide his disdain, visibly flinched and looking uncomfortable when asked about his co-star and seemed awkward when asked if it was nice to “work with a friend” on the movie.
Avoiding mentioning the actress' name and with lots of umms and ahhs, Tom replied: “I mean the amazing thing about this film was the cast in general.”
“It was great being part of such a unique group of people.”
That's not exactly what we asked Tom, but we'll take it you're not happy being referred to as a “friend” of K Stews?
The actor didn't mince his words over the scandal later on the red carpet and snapped at a journalist who asked him about the cheating revelations.
“I don't talk about my friends behind their back,” he snapped according to The Mirror.
It's good news that Tom values honesty and loyalty, but probably not for Kristen who clearly doesn't.
What do you think?
Are Rob's friends now anti-Kristen or is Tom just tired of being questioned about his friend?
