With rumors swirling that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are merely a romantic item forged back together strictly for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2 press, it seems that two new players have ironically emerged on the scene to further make the Robsten “showmance” situation even more interesting.
Blonde beauty Taylor Swift reportedly has her eyes firmly planted on Pattinson (she did date Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner); alas, it’s all gossip-y buzz that could be rendered false in an instant. So the singer may not be writing any songs about the British actor anytime soon. As for Stewart’s male admirer, well, that show of love came straight from the horse’sÂ—better yet, the stallion’sÂ—mouth. And he’s a married man to boot!
But don’t expect another fairytale-gone-awry a la Rupert Sanders, the married-with-children, Snow White and the Huntsman director who was the other half of Kristen Stewart’s cheating scandal. This time, the admiration is purely platonic and professionalÂ—but it could still be Stewart’s ticket to leaving the Twilight zone for good.
As E! News confirms, the starlet apparently wants to switch gears completely and get it on the romantic comedy scene with Focus, a rom-com starring Ben Affleck. And he’s all for it. While Affleck wouldn’t confirm or deny Stewart’s role in the upcoming flick, he did admit to E!, “She’s terrific and hopefully it will work out.”
Affleck’s wife, Jennifer Garner, may not share her husband’s enthusiasm about his potential co-star, though. Garner (nor anyone) would want to play the role in which Sanders’ wife, Liberty Ross, was unwittingly cast.
