The debate is raging. Who will play meek and mousey college student turned sexy vixen Anastasia Steele in the movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey? Not just anyone could stop Christian Grey on a dime, you know.
But as the list of actresses supposedly being pondered for the part grows, so does the concern. Get the wrong leading lady, and the movie version of the best-selling book could be 50 shades of absolutely awful. So who -- exactly -- has had their name thrown into the rumor mill? And, more importantly, what kind of credits do they have that fit the part of Ana?
Here are 10 actresses whose names have been linked to the role so far, and all you need to know to start your petition to get them the gig.
Who do you think would make the best Anastasia Steele?

Fresh off a turn of What to Expect When You're Expecting, Anna Kendrick is hot right now, and certainly hot looking. She's got the alabaster skin and flowing brown locks that fit the character ... and of course, the perfect name.
Not to mention, Anna has made no bones about being cool with the way dedicated fans approach a project. She once said she was tired of fans being ragged on, noting "If you don't like Twilight, don't buy a ticket."
That's just the kind of actress who would "get" the Fifty Shades following.
