Robert Pattinson braved the screaming throngs of fans and the pressure of his first live TV interview since the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal broke to appear on Good Morning America moments ago.

For his effort, Pattinson was rewarded with a box of his favorite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but didn't bite -- either the breakfast treat or the show's Stewart-themed line of questioning.

"I've never been interested in trying to sell my personal life," Pattinson said after George Stephanopoulos asked if the key to surviving in the public eye is to remain silent about scandals. "You get into [this business] to do movies. That's the only way to do it."

That doesn't mean he's adjusted to any of this insanity. "If you start getting used to [the attention], it means you're going crazy," Pattinson said. "It's nice. It's like being on the craziest theme park ride. It's exciting but eventually you have to have a break."

One of the few bright spots to emerge from this whole debacle has been the unwavering fan support. When asked if Pattinson has a message for the loyal legion of women who adore him, the Twilight superstar said, "I live for them," before joking, "I'd like my fans to know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch only has 30 calories a bowl" and laughing, "Pretty much anything that comes out of my mouth is irrelevant."
