For a while there, we really believed Mila Kunis might be on the shortlist of contenders being considered to play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Didn't matter that she recently dashed most fans' hopes by telling Allure earlier this month that she's uncomfortable going full-on nude for a role. Didn't matter that E.L. James said -- once again! -- that they're a "long way from casting." Mila lovers were still crossing their fingers that she'd get a crack at the role.
Well, now we can all bury ALL hope of that ever being the case, because at a London press conference for Oz The Great & Powerful, Mila laid Fifty Shades of Grey casting rumors about herself to rest. For good.
A member of the U.K. media must've pressed her about the flick, and Mila said:
Gosh, this Fifty Shades of Grey thing is just not gonna leave is it. No, you will not see me in Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm so sorry.
Apparently, then her Oz co-star Zach Braff quipped:
If I could cast a spell, I'd cast one on Mila to have her do Fifty Shades of Grey. Maybe this means I can be in it?
To which Mila responded, "It's all yours Zac, you'd be fantastic in it!" Ha! Too funny. Because Zach Braff as Christian is craaaazy. Not seeing that for sure.
And although many people could have seen Mila as Ana, I never could. The character is supposed to be so naive, innocent, "pure." A younger actress -- many Mila could pull that off, I guess, but she's too mature for that at this point. Now, whether or not she'd be perfect as the bossy, fiery Chloe Mills in Beautiful Bastard is a completely different story! And one she hasn't rejected yet either!
Are you disappointed to hear there's no way Mila will play Ana?
