Kristen Stewart has long been criticized for her acting and well, Ben Affleck is Ben Affleck. Now Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart will star in a sexy comedy…Well, that’s going to be interesting!
Kristen Stewart recently confirmed that she will star with Ben Affleck in an upcoming “sexy comedy” called “Focus”. So after “Twilight” and “On The Road” (which is rumored to be what will earn Kristen Stewart an Oscar nomination), the next big thing for Kristen Stewart is a comedy. Now will see if she knows how to laugh, not to mention Deadline reports there’s going to be some hot scenes…
It was Deadline Hollywood that reported first that Kristen Stewart will costar in “Focus”, which will feature “passionate” love scenes with the “Argo” director and actor. “I can confirm that rumor. It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it. We start shooting in April” Kristen Stewart told The Huffington Post today.
According to Deadline, Kristen Stewart will play “an inexperienced con artist who hooks up with the more seasoned Affleck” and the 40-year-old believes the “Twilight” star will be “terrific”. “I’m hesitant to get into casting stuff because I don’t know what’s finished or isn’t because people come in and out of things all the time, but [Kristen’s] terrific and hopefully it will work out” he told E! News.
In the meanwhile, both Kristen Stewart and Ben Affleck have big things coming up. “On The Road” is rumored to be earning Kristen Stewart an Oscar nomination for the best supporting actress. But fans aren’t all that convinced. For the most part they say Kristen Stewart did “surprisingly ok” but not at all that good to deserve an Oscar.
Ben Affleck on the other hand is doing much better with fans’ appreciation. “Argo” was surprisingly better than what most of us imagined, although it also helped the movie was based on a real story. He is also most likely going to win some Oscar nominations for best picture, best director and best supporting actor.
“They all stayed in the foreign service and kept doing their jobs” said Ben Affleck of the people portrayed in his movie. “One of the guys Joe Stafford, who Scoot McNairy plays in the movie, is in Sudan now – stilling working for the United States! It’s amazing. He’s gotta be in his sixties. I don’t want to go to Sudan, even for a weekend” he added.
