Actor John Cusack has reportedly "stolen" John Kerry's daughters ALEXANDRA and VANESSA from Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck.

Affleck - who has just split with girlfriend ENZA SAMBATARO - hooked up with the sisters at the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION's opening night in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday (27JUL04) - where both Kerry girls fought for his attention.

But Cusack caused new sibling rivalry when older sister Alexandra, 30, was recently spotted sharing cigarettes and kisses with the High Fidelity actor in Boston - and Vanessa, 27, attempted to steal him away.

Blonde Vanessa tried to sit between her sister and Cusack and was reportedly rebuffed according to gossip site PAGESIX.COM - so she sat on the other side of Cusack instead and chatted with them for a few minutes.
