Kristen Stewart Says She's 'Daring' Enough to Play Anastasia Steele

kristen stewartSit down Fifty Shades of Grey fans, I have some news. A new potential Anastasia Steele has just been thrown into the mix, and you might not like it: Kristen Stewart. I know. The woman formerly known as one-half of "Robsten" just might be in the running for one of the most-talked about roles in cinematic history. Do you like it? Do you hate it? Do you want to bend it over your knee and spank it like the naughty idea it is?

Although she hasn't read Fifty Shades in its entirety, Stewart has confessed to having read "large excerpts from the book," and when asked whether or not she'd be so bold as to play such a, uh, kinky character, she pointed out that, well, she is daring.

Stewart, in her typical, difficult-to-understand manner, put the following words together in an attempt to answer a question regarding 50SOG: "I haven’t read it, and so I mean, I know what you are talking about, I’ve definitely read some of ‘those bits’ [laughs]. It’s really nuts, I couldn’t believe it. I see people reading it and I’m like: 'Dude you are in public, what are you doing?' [Laughs] But I’m pretty daring. It just takes the right story, and so I don’t know because I haven’t read it. I’m not avoiding it or anything. I just think it’s been made this big deal, so I don’t even know how to answer that question."

Soooo, do you want to play the role or not, KStew? I wasn't able to glean much from that "answer." If my interpretation is correct, it sounds like you're not totally against the idea, right?

Personally, I think KStew would do a bang-up job as Anastasia Steele (heh). I mean, she does have experience in the sexy times department; she could draw from her recent experiences, use them as a learning tool. And, hey, everyone loved her in Twilight, and she had, like, no experience as a vampire. Imagine the heights she could reach with this role.

Again, though, this is just more speculation about who will play Anastasia. I'm sure in a few hours, we'll be hearing about someone new who's been "thrown into the mix." I vote KStew, though. Come on, guys, she's had a rough run. 

Who would you like to see play Anastasia Steele?

I don't doubt her acting abilities, I think Kristen is a great actress, sure she's awkward but I love that about her and I hardly care about this stupid scandal thing. It has nothing to do with me and her movies soooo, but I don't think she should even bother with that movie. I mean, that book shouldn't have been published in the first place and it shouldn't be made into a movie. I don't want any of those actors/actresses who are in the running or "ideal" for Anastasia Steele or Christen Grey should even ruin their career with a movie that is based off such a terrible book that was based off a Twilight itself. I know a lot of people love it but I seriously seriously am against the entire idea.

not such a good idea without Rob...I think the two of them would be great..that is the only way it should be done...that is what I think

Not even going to lie, I did picture her a lot while reading the books, but now I think Alexis Bledel would be perfect!! :) Oh and MATT BOMER as Christian!!!

Hell no... I'd rather chew off my right arm then see "k-stew" ruin the role as Ana ....Ana has an unspoken innocent class to her which Kristen Stewart doesn't in the least bit.
