Robert Pattinson's Interest in '50 Shades of Grey' Started a Long Time Ago

Robert PattinsonWell, well, well -- it looks like he definitely has an interest in all things kinky, because Robert Pattinson admits he read Fifty Shades of Grey (or at least what turned into Fifty Shades of Grey) quite some time ago. (Ooh-la-la!)

On MTV's The Yes/No Show, Rob wasn't shy about going ahead and putting it out there that he's just as interested in the erotic fiction craze that's sweeping the nation as the rest of us.

He simply said, "Yeah, I read a little bit of the Fifty Shades of Grey one before it was Fifty Shades of Grey." Yes, he's referring to Masters of the Universe -- the series of erotic fan fiction inspired by Twilight that E.L. James published online between 2009 and 2011.

So basically, he read Fifty Shades before it was known as Fifty Shades -- so he read it fully knowing that it was a blatant steamy spin-off of Edward and Bella's vampire/human love story.

Don't you think that had to be a little bit weird for him to read someone else's fantasies about bedroom actions between him and his on- and off-screen love, Kristen Stewart? (Kinda creepy.)

And when asked whether or not he thinks E.L. James has a bit of a perverted side, he replied, "Oh, yes."

Hmm. I wonder what his tone was while speaking that phrase? Was it simply, "Oh, yes," or more of an "Ohhh, YES" type of answer?

(Either way, it's still hot that he's into Fifty.)

Are you surprised that Rob read what turned out to be the inspiration for Fifty Shades?
