Quite a few real life couples have already been mentioned as options to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, because -- well, people who are doing it off-screen will probably have much more believable chemistry on-screen -- especially if they're being tied up and/or spanked (among other things).
But now another hot, young Hollywood couple has emerged as a contender -- and it's kind of puzzling that it took this long for them to enter the running, or at least to enter it together. If you haven't guessed yet, I'm talking about Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence and her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult.
But while they're definitely a handsome looking duo -- odds are good that more fans will probably warm up to the idea of Jennifer playing Ana than Nicholas playing Christian.

She definitely has some crazy sex appeal going on, and her name has been suggested by fans and media outlets alike in the past few months as far as possible Anastasias go. And given the success of Hunger Games, it's obvious that she knows how to act, so taking on Ama's role probably wouldn't be a huge challenge for her.
But even though she and Nicholas look great together, somehow he just doesn't strike me as being exactly right for Christian Grey's role. He has stunning eyes and he's good looking -- but he also looks very young for a 27-year-old dude. He has kind of a boyish quality going on, and Christian Grey is anything but boyish.
Yeah, when it comes to this duo, I'm thinking a strong "maybe" for Jennifer as Ana, but Nicholas probably needs to be taken out of the running -- unless he somehow matures and ages a good 10 years overnight.
What do you think of Jennifer and Nicholas as Ana and Christian?
