Rita OraPart of me still feels like this whole Fifty Shades of Grey movie thing is a dream. Or at the very least, that it could fall apart at any second. Do you blame me? We've been teased and disappointed before -- and in decidedly not-kinky ways. Sorry, I had to.

But it's definitely still on, if all the piping hot news and photos from the set are any indication -- and, uh, they are. Rita Ora, for example, was just spotted flying from California to Vancouver to get to work in her role as Mia, Christian's lil' sister. She maybe looked like she would rather have stayed in bed all day, but she DID go get her hair done before boarding the plane. She even wore red lipstick -- very much getting into the world of Fifty Shades. Between that and the acting classes she's been taking, Rita's clearly going into this seriously.

It's too bad that she'll be stuck in the brutal cold of Vancouver instead of heading for one of the film's other supposed locations -- like Miami or even SPAIN. Dude. How much would you love to live in a world where Spain had to double for Georgia? I feel like if Christian had whisked Ana off to Spain in book one, things might have happened a little differently.

We know Rita's not psyched about the cold. She spent the day of her flight to the shoot basking in the sun. Here's hoping it was enough to get her through those long, cold days. Who knows, maybe if she does good enough work, they'll add in a tropical scene for Miss Mia. Though I have a feeling anything so scenic will be reserved exclusively for the lovebirds.

Do you think Rita was the right choice to play Mia?
