Although the release of Fifty Shades of Grey is still months off, and it seems like everyone involved has signed an NDA (kinda like in the movie, eh?), one of the film's stars did manage to spill a bit of juice about it this past weekend!
Victor Rasuk, who plays Anastasia Steele's best friend Jose Rodriguez whose adoration of her is unrequited, told E! News exclusively at his Godzilla premiere in Hollywood that he's been "sworn to secrecy," however ...

She's super nice, down to earth and she's going to be a fantastic Anastasia. As a guy, person to person, [Jamie] was amazing to talk to and amazing to work with.
Okay, okay, we get it! They're nice, they're sweet, and as "amazing" as can be! What's it to us -- the fans?!

That everyone approached this project fully committed to doing the story justice.
They all sound acutely aware of how high the stakes are if the flick fails to please devotees. As long as that devotion to E.L. James' followers was at the core of everything the cast and crew did, well, I'm not sure how it could have gone awry. In fact, my bet's on fans finding they're very pleasantly surprised.
What part of the story are you hoping they absolutely get right?
