Ben Affleck drops out of Kristen Stewart film

By Tribute on December 21, 2012 | 11 Comments

Ben Affleck has dropped out of the Warner Bros. film, Focus, according to Variety. The Argo actor would have played a veteran grifter opposite Kristen Stewart, who plays a new grifter that he takes under his wing, but things get complicated when they become romantically involved. The film is to be directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa from Crazy, Stupid, Love, which starred Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Sources claim Affleck “very much wanted to do the film, the timing just couldn’t be worked out.” The film is scheduled for an April 2013 start date.  ~Luxy Hariharan

    …orrr… Jenn Garner said nah ah, you aren’t doing that film with her! lol.

    Exactly what I was thinking, C-Dub.

    maybe he can’t stand her either. I’m sure Jennifer is also protecting her man. Good.

    Maybe it’s just what he said…timing. Give Kristen a break…the director was just as much at fault, if not more being a person in authority.

    I don’t blame him, she sucks as an actress.

    Yeah, maybe Jenn knew what the rest of the world knows….that KStew is a no talent a$$ clown and didn’t want her hubby near her.

    She is arrogant , talentless, brainless, boring person always acts childish… She is always the same in every movies. Even her talking is the same!! Oh she is annoying…!

    ^ I must agree with Kelly.

    You wouldn’t expect Martin Scorsese to direct Battlefield Earth; by the same token don’t expect Ben Affleck to star along side that talentless hack.

    Kristen is a great actress. What are you guys talking about?

  10. C-Dub • December 22, 2012 @ 3:36 PM

    Nah you think too highly of her Janice. Someone of Ben afflecj stature can tap better p-day than that why would he risk bad publication on normal looking broad. But me c-dubb am a pervert that would tap anything that walks, Ben is a different story
