'50 Shades' Director Reveals Truly Twisted Subplot

ana steeleThis honestly may turn out to be the most perverse thing I've yet heard about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Director Sam Taylor-Johnson says there's a story arc just about Ana's pubic hair. Whips and handcuffs? Meh. But this? Yowza! Tell us more!


“Dakota and I had a very funny discussion about the arc and journey of her pubic hair, that she should start one way, and she goes on this journey with it, and in line with how it's written in the book is the journey of that,” Taylor-Johnson says in an interview. “Look out for the journey of the pubic hair."

What's that sound? Oh, it's me, calling my literary agent with a brilliant idea for a picture book.

Me: So it's called The Journey of Anastasia's Pubic Hair, and it's a first-person account of her pubes and what happens to them.

Agent: What DOES happen to them?

Me: Well, I don't know. I never actually got around to reading Fifty Shades. But I'm gonna see the movie and then I'll know! Anyway ---

Agent: I think he gets her to shave them off or something.

Me: Right! So we start with a photo of her, um, you know. And it's thick and lush. And then with every page you turn, you see less and less.

Agent: Um ... okay, you're not really hooking me here with this concept.

Me: But it's exciting! Her pubes sacrifice themselves for Ana's sex life! Can't see it?

Agent: Um, I've gotta go ...

Me: Hello? Hello?

Okay, I guess I need to see the movie before I get the concept down. But I think this idea could really go somewhere!

Are you curious about this "journey" the director mentions or are you concerned?
