Rumours have been flying around for a while now about whether or not Kristen Stewart will be starring alongside Ben Affleck in upcoming movie 'Focus' and the actress has now confirmed this. Exciting stuff!

'Focus' is set to involve a veteran con artist, played by Ben Affleck, who teams up with a young woman who's new to the whole 'gritter' lifestyle. Production will begin in April.

K-Stew told the HuffingtonPost, “I can confirm that rumor,” referring to stories that emerged last month that she’s slated to be in the film.

“It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it,” she added.

HollywoodLife previously reported Kristen and Ben would be required to shoot "passionate" love scenes. Ben subsequently admitted he hoped Kristen would take the role. Ah, who doesn't love a bit of K-Stew?

Speaking to E! News last month, the Argo director called her "terrific".

Meanwhile, it looks like it's definitely onwards and upwards for Kristen Stewart, as she's recently been named the 'seventh most inspirational star' of 2012.

The 'Twilight' actress came seventh in E! Online's 'Most Inspirational Star List' beating Olympic and Paralympic double-leg amputee, Oscar Pistorius who made history by competing at both London Games this summer as well as group Pussy Riot, who were imprisoned for singing a protest song against the Russian government.

E!Online explained why Kristen's handling of the fall out of her affair, after photos of the actress kissing the director were published in July, was worthy to be on such a list.

They said: “What do you do when you screw up, and get caught? If you're the Twilight actress, you apologise, put your head down and do your work, even if doing your work means putting you in front of the same people—the press and the public—who spent their summer scrutinizing and criticizing your every move. It may not be the classic feel-good tale, but it's a blueprint nonetheless on how to take your lumps.”

Good job, K-Stew!
