Robert Pattinson

Stop whatever it is you are doing immediately -- because what I'm about to tell you just might knock you right off your chair. Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James attended Robert Pattinson's party on Saturday night, which probably means she wants him to land the part of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades movie, right?

Yep, Rob threw a birthday bash for a pal, and somehow E.L. managed to get herself a spot on the guest list. Now Twilight fans everywhere are probably freaking out at the idea of the two of them being in the same room because -- DUH -- why else would they associate with each other if he wasn't seriously being considered to play Christian?

(Deep breaths.)

Gee, I dunno -- maybe it's because E.L. kind of has an "in" with the Hollywood types right now since her books are a bit on the popular side? 

Or maybe she's friends with the dude Rob threw the birthday party for in the first place, so he thought he should probably invite her?

Whatever the case, it's not like it was an intimate dinner with a small group of people or anything like that. It was a party, for crying out loud -- and typically parties tend to have lots of people in attendance. At this particular bash, one of those attendees just happened to be E.L. James -- and we probably shouldn't make a mountain out of a mole hill and read too much into her being there.

But then again, I guess there really is the possibility that the two of them will be working together in some capacity in the near future (wink, wink) -- so maybe jumping to conclusions isn't really all that far-fetched?

Hmm. Maybe we shouldn't totally close the door on the idea of Rob being cast as Christian. Stranger things have happened, right?

Do you think E.L. James was at Rob's party because she's interested in him getting Christian's role?
