Kristen Stewart is out of ‘Focus’

By Tribute on April 22, 2013 | 18 Comments

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ben Affleck, 40, and Kristen Stewart, 23, who were to star in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s comedy film Focus have backed out. Affleck was up for the job but decided to leave the project back in December to work on another film Live by Night. He said, “I was really excited to work with her. I think the movie is going to be fabulous. I’m sure they’ll find a great guy for it.” The ‘great guy’ that has already expressed some interest in the role is none other than Will Smith. However, Yahoo Movies reported that the new cast member caused Stewart to drop the project as well. The movie is about a veteran con-man who falls for his rookie con-woman. She felt that the age difference between her and Will, 44, was ‘too drastic’ to be playing his lover. Writers and directors, Ficarra and Requa, who worked with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in Crazy, Stupid, Love, initially had the pair in mind but due to conflicting schedules, they weren’t able to do the movie. ~E.

    If Kirsten Dunst and Tom Cruise can pull it off, what the hell is Kristen Stewart’s issue? You know what? Her loss – they can find someone WAY more talented and attractive to play opposite Will Smith.

    Do you mean Katie Holmes? lol
    I totally agree with finding someone else for the role. Firstly, it’s a comedy. Kristen Stewart has no funny bone in her body. She isn’t a good actress. Period.

    I’m glad she dropped out (I can’t stand her acting but I love Will Smith) however I find it funny that she was willing to portray Affleck’s lover but not Will’s, even though Will is only 4 years older then Ben.

    Precisely! How is four years apart going to be any different? It’s cuz Will’s black, isn’t it… once she found out he was interested, BAM, she dropped it.

    She is such a loser! And she is not even frigging funny.

    She doesn’t belong in the acting business. At the very least, she should put some of her earnings towards some acting lessons.

  7. Snepts • April 23, 2013 @ 2:41 AM

    Does she not realize that twenty-one years is about the average age difference between an actress and her leading man?

  8. Snepts • April 23, 2013 @ 2:42 AM

    What the heck is she wearing in that pic?!?!

  9. Linda • April 23, 2013 @ 6:47 AM

    Personally I like her. What projects she decides to take on is her call. There is a lot of jugmental people on this web site.
