New '50 Shades of Grey' Favorites for Christian & Ana Are the Creepiest We've Seen Yet

Flicks 83

Ed WestwickAs the days pass and we inch closer and closer to a casting announcement being made for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, it really seems like every possible coupling has been thrown out there as to who will play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

From Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum -- there are plenty of hot duos who could accurately portray the parts.

But a new fan poll shows two new favorites have emerged, and their pairing really seems very strange, and actually very creepy too.

According to Marie Claire, Ed Westwick and Emma Roberts are now on the list of contenders to play Christian and Ana.

Am I the only one who's just a little bit skeeved out, here?

I don't know what it is about Ed Westwick, but he's always creeped me out. And I've never really understood why women think he's so attractive. To me, he's just, kind of meh. I'm sure plenty of Gossip Girl fans will disagree with me, but I cannot picture him as Christian Grey. I just can't. And I also really don't want to. (He's totally disheveled in this photo, for Pete's sake. And his chest hair is so gross!)

Moving on to Emma Roberts. Yes, she's cute, innocent, and brunette. But she's also Julia Roberts' niece, which again, creeps me out. Even though she's 22, I still see her as a kid, and Ana simply can't be played by someone who is still perceived as a child actress. (That's just wrong.)

Neither one of them seem right for the roles on their own, but putting Ed and Emma together is a recipe for disaster. Can you even picture these two having any sort of decent chemistry? Ok, forget decent chemistry. Can you picture them having Fifty Shades of Grey-style chemistry?

(Ugh. Shuddering.)

I'm definitely crossing Emma and Ed off my list of Ana and Christian hopefuls. I just can't get behind this creepy combination.

Do you agree, or do you think Ed and Emma are perfect for the roles?

Totally agree with you on Ed Westwick! He gives me heebie jeebies! Something about him is just plain creepy! Nothing attractive at all about him in my opinion!

I will puke if this casting has any merit. Nobody I know will even bother to see the movies...and what a shame THAT would be. Producers would have to be cuh-RAzy to think either actor embodies the books' title characters.

He's doing 'duckface' for pete's sake! A GIGANTIC HELL NO to BOTH of those...uh... *shudders "choices".

I dont think Ed Westwick is good looking at all. He played an amazing Chuck, and he (as chuck) is probably into BDSM when he is all drugged up to hell but I would see the control and power needed for Christian in him.

I dont really know who emma is

No on Ed, but yes on Emma. She's quite beautiful and seems very innocent. I think she'd be a great Ana. I can't see her agreeing to do a role with nudity, though.

Ian only!

They are not even doing well in that poll that apparently claims them to be the new favorites, lol!! Such bogus. Emma is so boring looking, and Ed couldn't be more wrong for Christian Grey. This is just getting a bit ridiculous...

If he is going to play Christian grey then I will pass on the movie, he has a huge creep factor and he is well..not fun to look at and Christian is supposed to be breath taking not well that!! LOL

Angela Romero

ewww gross all around the guy is creepy and has none of Christians aspects. And your right Emma is a little girl not for this role. The role needs someone who has some kind of sex 50 shades of grey style experience

Now it's just getting stupid tired of all the bull am about to the point I could care less if they have a movie
