'50 Shades of Grey' Movie: 5 Actresses Who Would Make a Perfect Katherine Kavanagh (PHOTOS)

Julie Ryan Evans | Jun 20, 2012 Movies

50 Shades of GreyI'm a bit late to the Fifty Shades of Grey frenzy that has set the world -- and at least a few bedrooms -- on fire since it was launched. But I finally finished the first book, and I can definitely see what the fuss is all about. Now, like everyone else, I want to SEE the fuss on the big screen.

I've barely gotten into the second book, but I've already been creating my cast wish list for the movie to come. It changes a lot with every new chapter I read, but one of the characters I'm most intrigued by beyond the obvious stars, Christian and Anastasia, is Katherine (Kate) Kavanagh, Ana's BFF.

She seems so put together, spunky, composed, and charismatic. I can't help but wonder what would have happened if she'd been in that interview instead of Anastasia. Here are five hot Hollywood actresses I can imagine playing the role.

Who would you most like to see play Kate Kavanagh?

  • Blake Lively

    Plenty of people agree she should have a starring role in the film, though there's debate as to if she'd make a better Anastasia or Katherine. I think with her composure and high-class vibe, she's much more of a Katherine.

  • Leighton Meester

    It's too bad Leighton and Blake can't both be in the movie, but that would be way too Gossip Girl for comfort. While she could perhaps play Ana, I also think Leighton would make a great Kate. Though if I had to pick between Blake and Leighton for the role of Katherine ... I'd probably have to give it to Blake by a hair.

  • Emma Stone

    Spunky, sassy, and gorgeous to boot? Check, check, and check. Emma Stone would be the perfect best friend for Ana.

  • Selena Gomez

    If you can just put aside any images of her and Justin Bieber together, Selena actually makes a lot of sense for the role of Katherine. She said the role of Anastasia would be "a little too much" for her, but Katherine I think she could do.

  • Dianna Agron

    The Glee glamour girl is feisty that's for sure. She has the spunk and style to bring Kate Kavanagh right off of the pages. At this point, she's my top pick.
