Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been a couple in more than just the “Twilight” movies. They have been dating in real life as well, and in spite of recent news of cheating on Stewart’s part they are still together.
However, Ben Affleck, Kristen Stewart’s supposed co-star of “Focus”, has backed out of the film due to scheduling conflicts. He needed to focus, no pun intended, on his other projects; “Tell No One”, and Dennis Lehane’s “Live By Night”, as well as the award season promotion for “Argo”, says Entertainment Weekly.
Yup, Ben Affleck dumped Kristen Stewart … sort of. Stewart had been so excited to work with Affleck, too.
A Producer approached her:
“Hi Kristen. We know that you were excited about working with Ben, but he dropped out, so we got you a replacement … Brad?”
“Kristen Stewart, meet Brad Womack, former Bachelor.”
The trailer door had opened and in walked Womack, grinning like a goof.
Stewart then dug her phone out of her pocket and texted an SOS to her agent, according to Yahoo News.

Brad Womack, no stranger to TV with “The Soup” also under his belt and several talk show appearances such as “Ellen: The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno”, is a big screen newcomer, unlike Stewart, who has been in several films before her famous role as Bella Swan in the “Twilight” series.
“Focus” is currently scheduled to begin filming in April.
