(LOS ANGELES) — Funnyman Will Ferrell, 45, appeared on Conan Thursday night to promote his new movie, The Campaign, but his heart just wasn’t in it.
That’s because Ferrell was distraught thinking about the fate of the former couple, Kristen Stewart, 22, and Robert Pattinson, 26, after Stewart’s apology for her “momentary indiscretion” with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Ferrell welled up when he explained his woes to O’Brien about the Twilight franchise couple’s cheating scandal.
“She cheated on him, and they’re broken up and they aren’t going to get back together ever,” Ferrell said.
“They were in love and she just threw it all away!” said Ferrell.
While O’Brien tried to comfort his guest, Ferrell made it clear that he was on Team Pattinson, calling Stewart a “trampire.”
As Ferrell wailed on about the couple, he raised a question on many a Twihard’s mind — what will happen when the former duo has to face each other to promote the final installment of the Twilight saga come November?
Nancy Kirkpatrick, president of worldwide marketing for Summit, the studio behind the Twilight saga, told Entertainment Weekly, “While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November’s opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2.”
Meanwhile, Rupert Sanders’ wife, Liberty Ross, is laying down the law in the wake of his indiscretions with Stewart. RadarOnline reported that the The Snow White and the Huntsman director was looking forward to directing a follow-up to the film, but his wife may prevent him from doing so.
“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again,” said a source to RadarOnline.
