ryan goslingNow that we are enamoured with Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as the stars of Fifty Shades of Grey, it's hard to imagine anyone else in the roles of Christian and Ana. Okay ... hard in a good way, because if there is anything that Fifty Shades taught us, it's that fantasies are good -- really, really good. It is, however, difficult to believe some of these stars walked away from a role in the naughty trilogy.

Yes, even Ryan Gosling. Imagine the memes that would have come of that casting?! "Hey girl ... step into my red room for some, ahem, playtime." Because we love to indulge in fantasies, and in the interest in daydreaming, here are 20 celebrities who were considered for or wanted a role in Fifty Shades. While things didn't exactly work out for them, it's still fun to dream. And we'd be lying if we said there weren't a few names on this list who we would've dreamed fifty shades of erotic thoughts about, had they been cast in the flick. Oh well -- Thankfully Jamie and Dakota do an incredible job of making those dreams reality. (For the most part.)
