If you were hoping and praying that Emma Watson would be cast as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, you may want to have a seat: She's not. Watson has all but officially confirmed she's not doing the movie, tweeting over the weekend: "Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life."
Damn, Emma, tell us how you really feel.
Last week, the group of Hackers responsible for leaking Beyonce and Kanye West's personal information, reportedly hacked into a German film company's files and discovered that Emma was "confirmed" to star in the movie. But now Emma's telling us that that's not true. Well, actually, she isn't hard-core telling us that that's not true, as much as she's writing a vague, cryptic tweet that may be construed as making fun of the movie. I dunno. I mean, technically, I guess she still could play Ana, but she sure as shit doesn't sound like she has any interest. Am I making any sense here?
Personally, I don't see Emma in the role, as A) I just don't, and B) I just don't harder. I'm sure Emma would do a bang-up job (heh) as Ana, as she's a fantastic actress, but it really just doesn't seem to be her bag. She's more of a magic wand girl than a whips and chains girl, know what I mean, jelly bean?
Who do you want to play Anastasia Steele?
