"We're going to be fine," Kristen said after being asked about the potentially awkward public appearances the twosome will have to make in November while promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2."'We're totally fine," she added.
Both Pattinson and Stewart have maintained a relatively low profile since the 22-year old actress was caught cheating on her boyfriend with director Rupert Sanders. Pattinson had already made several appearances in promotion of his latest film "Cosmopolis" while Stewart kept quiet.
The actress came to the Toronto International Film Festival to promote her latest film "On the Road" but the journey got off to a rocky start when she was hounded by vicious paparazzi at the LAX airport. However, she was greeted by adoring fans that pledged their support and as a result Stewart stayed on the red carpet for longer than planned to sign autographs and take photos with her fans.
During the press conference the actress talked about the excitement of her latest film.
"We have been waiting for this thing to be unleashed for so long. It was sort of one of those situations where you just have to put yourself in your body and go appreciate the moment," the "Twilight" star said.
"I was a little nervous, obviously. I'm always nervous before a red carpet," said Stewart. "To be honest, I was just kind of telling myself, like, just don't black out. Be there, don't just figuratively put your head down and barrel though it. Be there, appreciate it. Luckily, very, very much I was able to do that."
"On the Road" also stars Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst. The film was received with mix reviews with Variety stating that "Despite the high level of craft here, it's an inadequate substitute for the thrilling, sustaining intelligence of Kerouac's voice."However, they did praise Stewart by stating that " Stewart and Dunst, whose warm, emotionally accessible turns lend Marylou and Camille more flesh and character than they had on the page."
