Looks like we can narrow down the casting for Fifty Shadesof Grey a little bit!
Emma Watson appeared to be at the top of the list ofpotential candidates to take on the sweet and innocent Anastasia Steele in thesteamy novel-turned-feature film. But, according to, well, HER, it’s not true.
“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script,nothing,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “There are so many movies you becomeattached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was thesame way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – Inever even saw a script!”
Along with Emma, Elizabeth Olsen was another name that hasbeen thrown around, but she cleared up that rumor pretty quick! When asked ifshe could potentially do it, she replied, “No, no, no!... All of a sudden, thisbook has become a sensation because the women reading it haven't had access tothis kind of thing before. I was talking to a guy who was making a joke aboutit, saying, 'Clearly, these women just need to watch porn'. In a way, he'sright."
Hollywood name after name has been thrown in the pool totake on S&M-lovers Christian Grey and Anastasia, like Ian Somerhalder,Chris Pine, Katie Cassidy, Matt Bomer, etc. But if they want to just hurry upand cast it already for all of us waiting oh-so-impatiently, that would be fantastic.
What do you think about Emma and Elizabeth not being a partof Grey? Are you bummed? Who do you think should take over the role?
