Kristen Stewart Drops Out of ‘Focus’ Because Will Smith Is Too Old

Kristen Stewart was attached to star in Focus, a film written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who did Crazy, Stupid, Love, but dropped out when Will Smith signed on. The film is about “a veteran grifter takes a young, attractive woman under his wing, but things get complicated when they become romantically involved.”

Ben Affleck came close to signing on at first but dropped out because of prior commitments. Will Smith then agreed but Stewart dropped out because she felt the age difference was too much. Will Smith is 44.

Yikes. First you’re this hot, fresh Prince that all the girls want to sleep with and then you become this creepy old guy no actress wants to have fake sex with. Time is a cruel mistress.

Looks like Focus might get a female lead who can actually act, then!

Let’s see, Kristen has no problem cheating in real life with a 42 year old, but won’t star next to Will Smith because he’s “too old” at 44? Is there a psychiatrist in the house?!!
