In Touch Exclusive
Stewart to Star
Opposite Ben Affleck
in New Film 'Focus'
Weeks after In Touch reported she will star with Ben Affleck in an upcoming film containing steamy love scenes, Kristen Stewart is confirming the news.
"I'm really excited about it," the Twilight actress says of the movie Focus. "We start shooting in April.”
The film tells the story of a veteran grifter who takes a young, attractive woman under his wing. But things get complicated when they become romantically involved.
After exclusively obtaining the film’s script, In Touch can confirm that Kristen, 22, and Ben, 40, will share some very steamy scenes, one in which the pair engage in makeup sex after a big fight… and Kristen will go nude. But that’s only one of the script’s sexually charged moments.
In another racy scene, the script reads: “Looking up at the man in front of her, the young woman whispers, 'Just kiss me.' He lowers his lips to hers, her back pressed against the hotel room door. After fumbling for the lock, the pair stumble through the hallway to the bedroom, never breaking their embrace. They fall onto the bed in a tangle of limbs.”
Prior to Kristen’s confirmation of her role in Focus, Ben spoke out about the possibility of working with her. “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,” he said. “But [Kristen’s] terrific, and hopefully it will work out.”
