As he continues to deal with the fallout of his girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheating on him, Robert Pattinson is making his first public appearances.

The actor left Reese Witherspoon's house in Ojai, California, where he had sought refuge, for a night out with friends from the U.K. at a nearby country-Western bar last Friday. A source told People magazine, "Pattinson came in with a few friends, like three guys. There was a big party here already and they came in to hang out with the party. There were two girls that were hanging around him, but not Rob necessarily. He seemed happy, fine."

The source added, "He was laughing and smiling most of the time, but he was low key. He didn't really get up. No dancing or anything. He was totally nice and polite."

The "Twilight" star has also booked a sit down interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, August 15.

The "GMA" appearance will be a live interview. There is no word yet on who will be asking the questions to Pattinson, but he will be there to promote his new movie, "Cosmopolis."

It is one of two upcoming sit-down interviews for the 26-year-old actor; he reportedly is also confirmed to appear as a guest on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" on Monday, August 13.

These will be his first interviews since Stewart publicly apologized for cheating on him with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.

Bill Condon, the director of the final two "Twilight" films, weighed in on the scandal by pleading with fans for "respect" for Stewart and Pattinson.

To Entertainment Weekly, Condon said, "The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it's not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that. Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the 'Twilight' movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it's time that some of that respect be returned to them."
