The Twilight star will appear on Good Morning America on August 15 to promote his upcoming film Cosmopolis, reports US Weekly.
The appearance marks Pattinson's reemergence into the public eye since the news of longtime girlfriend Kristen Stewart's affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders was revealed.
The actor, who is thought to be hiding out at Reese Witherspoon's ranch in the wake of the breakup, will appear at the Cosmopolis premiere two days prior to the Good Morning America interview.
It has been suggested that Stewart has been banned from the event, which will be held in New York City, in order to "avoid drama".
"The decision was made because Robert just doesn't want to see her," a source said. "There were fears that she could use it as a chance to talk to him in person and that sort of drama is not wanted at the premiere."
