R-Patz talks about Stewart’s cheating

Robert Pattinson says he doesn’t ‘‘give a s***’’ that ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheated on him, he just found it really hard to talk about it in public.

The 28-year-old Twilight star broke up with his co-star Stewart in July 2012 after the 24-year-old actress had a short affair with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

But Pattinson says he’s well and truly over the drama.

‘‘S*** happens, you know? It’s just young people - it’s normal,’’ he told the UK’s Esquire magazine. ‘‘And honestly, who gives a s***?’’

Even after the pair split amid international outrage from Twilight fans, Pattinson said he was protective of Stewart.

‘‘The hardest part was talking about it afterwards,’’ he said.

‘‘Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict.

‘‘It’s like that scene in Doubt, where (Philip Seymour Hoffman is) talking about how to take back gossip?‘‘They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.’’Pattinson and Stewart split for good earlier this year.

The British actor also said he couldn’t understand why everyone is so intrigued with his private life.

‘‘I used to dress up my assistant as me, and get him to drive off with like five cars following him around for hours,’’ he said.

‘‘But whenever I see a bunch of paparazzi hanging out, I always think, ‘Oh God, what have they found out?’. Oh, that love child, I totally forgot,’’ he joked.
