Kristen Stewart has confirmed she is starring opposite Ben Affleck in the Warner Bros. comedy "Focus." And it looks like the two are going to be steaming up the big screen with several make-out scenes.

Reports started surfacing about month ago that Affleck, 40, and Stewart, 22, were going to star in the film, one even saying the two actors share several kissing scenes, and at least one scene where they're both seen in bed together.

"I can confirm that rumor," Stewart told the Huffington Post of being cast in the film. "It's a comedy. I'm really excited about it. We start shooting in April."

What do you think? Can Kristen pull off a comedy role?

He says he's just busy. I wonder about the rumors about Kristen's past antics and her acting ability.

Uh-oh!  I just read on Yahoo that Ben Affleck has dropped out of the project.  Any suggestions on who her new leading man should be?

I hope for her sake that she can pull it off.  This is her chance to show that she's not a sour puss.

Mheh... I'll probably watch it because of Ben. But who knows; Kristen may rock the role -- you just never know!!

I think I'll reserve judgement on this one for now. Wink
