It was only a matter of time before Hollywood stars started getting associated with the political arena. The latest celebrity to enter the fray is Robert Pattinson, who recently posed for a humorous picture with Jon Stewart at a Capitol Halloween celebration in Washington, D.C., on October 20. Stewart is known for his satirical news show The Daily Show, which satirizes various news stories and interviews, so it’s no surprise that he would want to interact with the Hollywood star known for his role in the movie Twilight. It was previously reported that Stewart had met with Pattinson to discuss possible interviews for The Daily Show, and the star later tweeted about it.

The 35-year-old British actor has always been open about his political views, particularly regarding environmental issues. In fact, he was a speaker at a 2012 Conference on Climate Change, which focused on raising awareness about the environmental effects of entertainment. So it’s no surprise that he would want to get involved in politics. Interestingly, Stewart has an interview with Pattinson coming up on The Daily Show on November 3, and it will be the first time that these two influential figures have addressed the topic publicly.

“This is an important moment,” Stewart said in a statement prior to the meeting. “Young people are at the center of so much change right now, and in a better place to lead change than their parents or even their grandparents. We need to listen to what they have to say and make sure that their views are represented in our country’s political process.”

Pattinson’s Past Involvement In Politics

Pattinson has been involved with environmental issues ever since he was 15 years old and became a vegetarian. He also cofounded the organization PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which lobbies for animal rights, in 2002. In an interview with Teen Vogue, the star said he was driven to action after watching footage of animals being raised and tortured for entertainment. He wants to make sure that animals are treated with more respect and that their interests are considered while in the workplace.

The actor has also opposed the use of cosmetic testing on animals and has advocated for veganism. Pattinson supports the Labour Party, which he says cares about the environment, and most recently he got involved with the Tory MP Caroline Spelman’s campaign for Westminster Parliament. He donated a total of £100 (approximately $143) to Spelman’s campaign, and in return, the MP invited him to her office for a chat. He also hosted a fundraising event for Spelman in London in June, and according to NME, he gave the following reason for getting involved in politics: “The current government, across the U.K. and the U.S., isn’t looking after the environment. Someone has to take the reins and protect nature, and it should be the youth. I want to work within the system and help change things for the better.”

Why Is Stewart Interested In Politics?

The Daily Show is one of the most influential satirical news shows in the United States, and it frequently mocks politicians and celebrities for their views on current events. Stewart, who often refers to himself in the third person as “Stephen Colbert,” began his show in 1999 and quickly became known for poking fun at politicians and celebrities. He currently has over 500 episodes of The Daily Show under his belt and has interviewed many high-profile figures, including former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush and Hollywood stars like Matt Damon and Jennifer Aniston.

Stewart came up with the idea for a daily satirical news show while he was hosting The Late Show on CBS. He reportedly wanted a way to give his audience a daily dose of light-hearted comedy and satire during a time that was heavily dominated by Donald Trump and the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. He was also inspired by The Onion News Network, which launched in January 2016 and is described as a “nationally-syndicated news and satire site that aims to be fearless and humorous in its commentary and satire,” and took cues from Chris Rock’s 1989 album Good Hair, which is filled with funny observations about black culture and society.

Like Pattinson, Stewart is concerned about the environment and climate change and believes that young people are the future. Stewart is also a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton and was one of the first Hollywood stars to offer his services to the campaign, which eventually led to him hosting a fundraiser for the Democratic candidate in October. According to The Guardian, Stewart said the following about his political involvement: “I would never comment on another person’s politics, but I will say that I think that in this current political climate, it’s more important now than ever before that we’re trying to bring people together. That’s really the goal: to try to represent the viewpoints of people who might not normally get a chance to be heard, because no one is talking about the issues anymore. That’s what I hope we can do: I hope that this interview will help start a dialog.”

What Will They Talk About?

It is not yet known what topics Stewart and Pattinson will cover during their interview. However, one can probably assume that they will touch on politics and/or the environment. Stewart has interviewed many high-profile figures, including former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush and Hollywood stars like Matt Damon and Jennifer Aniston, so he will have plenty of material to work with. On the other hand, Pattinson has been involved with environmental issues since he was 15 years old and has been working on various projects, including two documentary films, that promote sustainable tourism. It is expected that the interview will be posted on The Daily Show’s website on November 3.
