I happen to think that Kristen Stewart has gotten a whole lot smarter since getting caught making out with the very married, Rupert Sanders, in broad daylight. That whole mess may ultimately cost her the love of Robert Pattinson and it has most certainly affected her standing in Hollywood. The home wrecker has been dropped from projects and she knows that she needs to sink her teeth into something solid and attach herself to a name that will bring her some respect.
According to Deadline, Kristen is angling for a role in Focus with Ben Affleck. Her role would be an inexperienced con artist who hooks up with the more seasoned Affleck. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who were behind the camera on Crazy, Stupid, Love will direct Focus. The duo also wrote the screenplay. Denise DiNovi will produce.
Ben is definitely a solid fixture in Hollywood, he’s a powerhouse and has proven that he can do a bit of everything, he writes, acts and produces. In other words, Ben is EXACTLY what Kristen needs to help stabilize her shaky career. However, Kristen is not what Ben is looking for if he wants to keep his marriage in one piece. Let’s not forget that Ben was once a serial cheater and womanizing douche with serious substance abuse issues. Yes, now he seems to be a family guy but what lurks beneath the surface? The Trampire is certainly the one to take a bite and find out.
Can you imagine Jen Garner’s reaction to even the idea of him working with the admitted husband swiper? I just don’t see her supporting the idea of him working on set with Kristen day after day, knowing full well what Kristen is capable of. I mean back when she was filming Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen even got close to Rupert’s wife and kids while screwing her boss! Jen could have Kristen over for dinner and even that wouldn’t ensure that she’d keep her hands off of Ben. I’m guessing Ben probably has a bit of a say in who he works with too and Jen no doubt is leaning on him to not even consider Kristen in the mix.
Do you think Kristen and Ben would work well together on screen? Should the pairing be given a shot and if it is, will it cost Ben his marriage? Should we ask Liberty Ross what she thinks? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
