(CNN) — The paparazzi will likely have a field day with these upcoming appearances from Robert Pattinson.

A rep for the actor has confirmed that the 26-year-old star will still publicly promote his upcoming film in the wake of a public apology from his “Twilight Saga” co-star and rumored girlfriend Kristen Stewart.

Stewart’s statement, issued last week, explained that she’s sorry for a “momentary indiscretion” involving her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, and said that her error “jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”

Pattinson’s relationship with Stewart has been closely watched following that admission. The speculation doesn’t appear to be slowing down, but Pattinson will still brave the red carpet to promote his new film, “Cosmopolis.”

“Cosmopolis is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting,” Pattinson’s rep told CNN. “No confirmed engagements have been canceled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate.”

“Cosmopolis” opens in limited release on August 17.
