Rebecca Romijn-STAMOS put on a brave face to appear on Jay Leno's chat show last night (13APR04), marking her first interview since announcing her separation from husband John Stamos.

The Hollywood couple announced their split on Monday (12APR04) after more than five years of marriage, and Romijn-Stamos pressed on with promotional duties of her new movie THE PUNISHER - attending the premiere on the same day and then chatting with Leno less than 24 hours later.

After walking onstage in a flattering green dress, Leno told the statuesque beauty, "Thanks for coming. You're a real pro. I know you're going through some personal stuff. You guys are getting separated and I'm very sorry to hear that."

Romijn-Stamos responded, "It's sad and it's painful. We're still friends, but I'm still trying to get my head around it. It's kinda hard to talk about.

"You're my friend and I've got these two movies that I'm really proud of and I wanna honour my commitment to them. But it's hard to come on these shows and be funny when you've got sad stuff going on."

Romijn-Stamos will also be promoting her movie GODSEND in the upcoming weeks, which is slated to hit American screens on 30 April (04).
