The Twilight star is currently taking part in interviews for Cosmopolis, in some of his first appearances since it emerged that his girlfriend Kristen Stewart had cheated on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Pattinson has now revealed that he tries to distance himself from media reports in an interview with Showbiz Tonight.
Asked if he is okay, Pattinson replied: "Yeah" and then began laughing.
"Since the first Twilight you enter this kind of realm where you get stuff reported about you and it's weird," he said. "You start having total disassociation."
Pattinson continued: "[You say,] 'I don't want to talk about that' - loads of people just make it up anyway! It doesn't make any difference."
Pattinson made his first public appearance since the scandal on Monday when he attended the New York premiere of Cosmopolis. He was later a guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and yesterday opened the New York Stock Exchange.
He is next expected to appear on Good Morning America today (August 15).
