Ever since Robert Pattinson found out Kristen Stewart had cheated on him with her Snow White And The Huntsman director, the actor seemed to be dealing with the public humiliation rather well.

But it looks like the 26-year old's cool demeanour has finally cracked after showcasing some rather odd behaviour at a New York bar by drilling a hole into a table on Monday night.

Just why the Cosmopolis star had a power tool to hand is unknown, as well as the reason for his DIY showcase but it wouldn't be surprising if this was an act of passive aggression after the last few months of emotional turmoil.

The picture emerged on Twitter,
alongside the caption: 'Memories from last night: #RobertPattinson using
#powertools NY never ceases to #surprise @ Wooster St.'

With weeks to go until the Los
Angeles premiere of Twilight, a stunt like this isn't helping Robert keep a low profile.

Especially as the rumours that the English star has reconciled with 21-year old Kristen – his girlfriend of three years -are being covered by every media outlet.

Robert is legally required to appear with Kristen at the upcoming LA screening of The Twilight
Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

But the stress of the looming
premiere looks like it
has been taking its toll on Rob who looked tired and withdrawn as he
made his way through Manhattan.

However, his mood will no doubt have
been lifted after meeting up with best friend Tom Sturridge who is currently in
the Big Apple with fiance Sienna Miller and baby Marlowe.

Rob, dressed down in cobalt blue jeans, sneakers, black jacket and blue beanie, also shielded his eyes with dark sunglasses in his best effort to go incognito.

Robert and Kristen have not been
pictured together since news broke of her relationship with Rupert Sanders in
July, when photos of the pair locked in an intimate embrace were
published by Us Weekly.

The Twilight co-stars reportedly moved out of their shared LA home after the incident.

And the pair will have to brush aside any lingering awkwardness as they prepare to have all eyes on them next month.

A source tells RadarOnline: 'Rob and Kristen are legally required to promote Breaking Dawn Part 2 together along with the rest of the cast.

'Their individual contracts have very
specific language about what is legally required of Rob and Kristen to
do on the publicity tour.'

The insider added: 'The studio execs
at Summit weren't happy when Rob and Kristen broke up, but this is why
there are clauses about what is required of the stars to do.'

The November 15 date is not the only promotional event the pair will have to endure.

Robert, Kristen and the Twilight cast
are scheduled to embark on a worldwide media tour to promote the final
film in The Twilight Saga.
