Kristen Stewart: 'Focus' with Ben Affleck?

Kristen Stewart is currently in talks to star in the upcoming film Focus.

The 22-year-old actress would star opposite Ben Affleck.

Focus centers on “a veteran con-man (Affleck) who becomes romantically involved with a newcomer (Stewart) and finds the relationship challenged by their illegal activities. When they meet again down the line, the complications have long-lasting effects.”

The flick will be directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Last month, it was announced that Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone would not be starring together in the film.

  • Uh, oh!

    I bet Jennifer Garner will try and talk Ben out of this one!

  • Anne

    I think she would be a great choice. Give the girl a chance!

  • uh oh

    Jennifer Garner !!!!! Don’t trust your husband with this trampire. She’s going to go after Ben and he will no doubt cheat on you! This girl has no morals!

  • hmmm

    Stewart is 24 and Affleck is 40. She plays his love interest…this is a set up for Ben to tap this hoe.

  • Jenna

    A bit of an odd combination no?

  • jen

    But she can’t act and ben’s talents are more with directing than acting (he’s not too bad at acting). But kstew cannot acttttt why?!!
    There are so many young actors out there with real talent and they’re not getting the roles/attn they deserve!!

  • hmmm

    hmmm I stand corrected…she’s 22 and he’s 40…that’s way beyond weird. There’s no more mature talented actresses in Hollywood near 30. Or is that too old in HW?? What audience are they thinking want to see those two and believe they were lovers? Creepy old guys.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    Uh-oh TWO directors? Just who will she screw (first, that is)?

  • sweetness

    Wow what a letdown. This movie could have been with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling (Great actors)…now they go for these two?!! Both of them are the weakest actors ever..He mumbles and she’s got one deadpan expression with gaping mouth….Is this a joke?

  • lainey

    What a mess is gonna be.KS who has a thing for married man, BA who has wandering eyes, JG going to visit him all the time on the set because she doesn´t trust him.It´s gonna be funny and amusing and we are going to have a lot to gossip about.Can´t wait!!!!

  • creed

    I think she is prettier than the fat Donkey-face Jennifer Lawrence!

  • LaCroix

    this is just a rumor.

  • Asha

    So is Kristen going to attempt to homewreck another family this time? Jen Garner, you better guard you man.

  • april

    i saw this headline an was really excited because i love both these actors(who’s personal lives are none of business) and see all these
    comments and am now thinking to myself some people are really sad….hope you all remember karma always comes around

  • ken

    man some people suck….we all need to get lives

  • creed

    @ken: ikr I cant wait till yall are gonna comment on MY life. Ima get so many Oscars AND marry Leonardo Dicaprio

  • sunny

    Kristen Stewart keeps adding to her millions.

  • lara

    yeah i dont think jen has anything to worry about. ben is a real man, unlike rupert(disgusting pig) saunders so he wont have to sell out his family to get jobs…pathetic!!

  • LooseLipz

    Ben has an amazing woman who really can’t be beat on all levels..Why would he risk his marriage with this no good nothing chick?
    I hope she doesn’t get the part.

  • nina

    @lara: like he’s not selling his family to get an Oscar? Please little twilight fan, you’re way out of your leaugue!

  • nina

    @LaCroix: let’s face it, she got the part.. :( I hope Ben drops out after she’s cast in, it would be very entertaining!

  • April

    @lara: I agree and Kristen didn’t go after Rupert, he more than likely approached her. Ben and Rupert are obviously two different men. Ben has daughters who he wants to proud of him and would no more approach this kid if they ever worked together. Why do people have such a low opinion of Ben (who btw has never been proven guilty of any wrong doing) and yet have such high regard for Brad PItt (Angelina even admitted that they fell in love on set of M/M Smith) who is looking like a model stand-up guy? Go figure.

    Ben is smart…he knows how not to get caught cheating

  • lara
  • Emma

    Sounds like Jennifer Garner might need to go Alias on this girl if this actually happens.

  • Carol

    What a shame when there are so many great actresses out there, Jennifer Lawrence for one.

  • April

    @RupertSanders: A cheater only cheats himself and feels regret for his actions. People who don’t honor vows are the only losers and always face fear of detection. No way to live and never really know real happiness. Rupert is still out in the cold. His wife and kids will never give him the kind of respect a real husband and father enjoys. His loss. I hope it was worth it. I’m afraid he is no Ben Affleck.

  • tara

    Emma Stone and Ryan are a better combination than Ben and Kristen. Hopefully, Ben will save the movie.

  • Maddie

    Are we sure Emma Stone isn’t still in talks for this movie? She had lunch with Affleck last week.

  • Liz

    Good for her!

  • Jenny

    TRAMPIRE!!!!

  • R

    this girl must be THE pro in the casting couch, otherwise I can not understand how she can have a career, how??

  • R

    @April: little twihards, your Stew Your Stew is not convincing in the role of the innocent damsel in this story, just like any other role, in fact, iif she f * Rupert it’s because she wanted to.

  • A

    I hope Jen Garner is ready to make a lot of surprise set visits.

  • Hags

    Why, whhhhhhhy Kristen keeps getting roles,wwwwwhy?She’s got our Rob still and now she’ s got awesome roles ,why is this girl so lucky ,wwwwwwhhhhhhyyyyy?lol!

  • Trudy

    @Hags: She keeps getting role because her auditions are done on casting couch lol

  • Finanas

    Are you all crazy stupid jealous teen girls or what ? “huuuuh i’m so mad ! she’s still with Rob and she still plays in movies! that’s so unfair” bla bla bla… GET OVER IT GIRLS. And don’t blame the girl for eternity, she didn’t murder anyone.

  • Julie

    Ben is supposedly one of the biggest womanizers in Hollywood.I don’t know how true this is but if its true then I guess its safe to say that Kristen is in good company and if/when they hook up she will do everything in her power to ensure that they don’t get caught.

  • eve

    Should Jennifer Garner be worried?

  • *

    she’s got a lot of eye makeup in this photo!

  • R

    @Finanas: just coz she’s a toxic untalented bitch with a fan-base of hystérical morons, .

  • green

    @Hags: I agree with Trudy. About kristen still got Rob: I’m sure Rob & kslut reconciliation is PR stunt. Rob had no choice except to play the fake reconciliation. Summit n kristen’s PR team pushed rob into that PR stunt. And I’m sure the affair is real. Maybe kristen PR team spread the rumour that the affair was PR stunt to save kristen image.

  • aquarius64

    If the studio is smart, they put in a morals clause in Kristen’s contract to protect its interests. No doubt Summit shelled out a ton of money for damage control because of the Mini-Cooper Makeout. Make sure she’s pays for her lack of judgment with her wallet, a “fling fine” if you will. And K-Stew fans, no matter how many times you cry for everyone to move on, her cheating will be with her for the rest of her life. It’s part of her Wikipedia entry now. It’s NEVER going to go away; she will never completely live it down. And Rob will forever have the horns of a cuckold on him. No doubts tabloids will run stories about Kristen & Ben hooking up to sell the idea she’s a serial cheat. He will have to put up with the whispers in Hollywood. Since he supposedly took her back, he has to deal with the consequences of that choice.

  • bwn

    @R: yah the thing is its totally one sided its like you a forget that it was ruperts choice too…why cant kristen get a job and us be happy about i?!t..ruperts it talks to do more movies! shes not the only one who’s going to need a moral clause

  • cole

    @bwn: @bwn:at least his wife wouldn’t have to worry about him although she seems to love this attention! i’m sure you all saw her camel toe…disgusting

  • annie

    always a bummer when the untalented keep getting work. i don’t care about this chick’s personal life, but she can’t act worth crap.

  • rachel

    ben afleck cant act either

  • A

    Oh god! I just realized one thing – Since Kristen’s character in this movie in romantically involved with an older guy she will be compelled to talk about falling for someone much older than her LOL The promo junket for this movie will be really really interesting ;) Way to go,Kristen!

  • Prim

    @creed: “Fat Donkey face?” Woooow. Such an awful insult. Really immature. Jen is an amazing actress with a genuine personality who would NEVER betray anyone’s trust. I may not know her but I know enough not to call someone a, and I quote, “Fat Donkey Face”.

  • http://Ipad Pip

    @Prim: What koolade are you drinking?
    Jennifer that dumped her first husband, to date her co-worker Vartan, then dumped him for Ben.
    So Jennifer is not the little hausfrau, that she is playing, so she is a match for Ben in the cheating department.
