Ever heard of Skins star Kaya Scodelario? Think she would make a great Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie? Don't get your hopes up. The 21-year-old British beauty was never really a front runner, but nevertheless, she's squashed any and all rumors that she'd star in the racy film by stating, quite simply, "I’m not comfortable doing nudity."
Her reason? It has to do with her mom.
Kaya told Metro:
My mum’s always asked me not to do it and I respect her. I’m nowhere near confident enough in myself. Considering what Fifty Shades is about, I wouldn’t be able to.
Kaya is familiar with racy subject matter, though. Her show, Skins, which airs in the U.K., covers such controversial topics as teen sexuality, substance abuse, and death. It was so contentious, in fact, that when MTV aired an Americanized adaptation of Skins, it was cancelled after one season due to its sexual yet adolescent context.
So no Ana for Kaya ... which leaves room for plenty of other actresses to make their move. Brit Emma Watson was rumored to have secured the part, but that's still up in the air. As of now, fans are clamouring to see Nina Dobrev, Elizabeth Olsen, or Jennifer Lawrence take on the sexy part.
Good for Kaya for knowing her boundaries -- she doesn't care what fame or fortune the role in Fifty Shades might bring: if it exposes her naked bod, she's out.
Her mom must be so proud.
Did you think Kaya Scodelario had a good chance of playing Ana?
