Child Star All Grown Up Would Make the Perfect Anastasia Steele in '50 Shades' Movie

OMG 28

Alexis BledelThere are so many good looking young brunettes in Hollywood that, at this point, the candidates to play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie are around every corner. One second we're hearing all about Mila Kunis' Ana potential, the next Kristen Stewart's in the mix. Well Alexis Bledel, whose name has been tossed around for the role, recently revealed her thoughts on a possible Fifty Shades of Grey future.

Bledel confessed to Zap2it that she's thought about it, certainly. She also says that she's "had conversations about it with pretty much everyone at one point or another, but [she doesn't] think the script is even finished yet."

I'm just gotta say it: if she knows the status of the Fifty Shades script, then she's REALLY gotta be considering it (or her agent is), right? In my eyes, she'd be perfect.

Sure, she's a little older than the Ana in the book (Bledel is currently 31), but I think she can play the part fine despite that. Heck, how many times have older A-listers played high school and college roles (Rachel McAdams in Mean Girls, anyone?)?

I just love the awesome innocence about Alexis Bledel, which probably stems from her days as Rory Gilmore. Her acting is honest, she's coy and sweet but has this flirtatious way about her, which I adore. In my mind, she's a dead ringer for E.L. James' Ana, an actress who can truly convey a woman coming into her own alongside a sexy Christian Grey.

Who is your current frontrunner to play Ana? Do you think Alexis would be good for the part?

I thought the character was supposed to be a frumpy housewife type?

That wasnt Alexis Bledel in Last House on the Left. That was Sara Paxton.

I like the idea. She fits the role portrayed in the book better than some other prospects.

Alexis is too old for THIS role. Yes she has the look, but so do some others that are being considered, like Emilia Clarke, for example, who are much more age-appropriate, look the part, and are also comfortable with baring it all in front of the camera. Alexis is about 5 years too late for this role. In looking at recent pics, since all the ones going around for her as Ana seem to be old, it's very clear even her baby face is starting to age and she can no longer play a 21 year old.

Alexis is 31 years old. That is ten years older the Ana.... Just no... The actess who plays Ana should be no older than 25...
