The erotic novel has quickly become a sensation and Jolie is ‘dead set’ on playing the title character in the film adaption. Really? Do you see Angelina Jolie in 50 Shades of Grey playing Anastasia Steele?
First things first – Jolie is now 37 years old while Anastasia Steele’s character in the book is a 21 year-old virgin passionately captivated by Christian Grey. Jolie is a bi-sexual mother of 6, married twice, has numerous tattoos, used to wear vials of Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around her neck, and famously took Brad Pitt as her own while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston, amongst others. So if we can see past all of that, sure she would be a perfect pick!
A source told the Daily Mirror that ”Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK. All the girls on set were talking about it and how it’s being made into a film. Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she’d love a part in the hot topic on everyone’s lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit.”
People that are currently working with Jolie on the Maleficent film persuaded her to buy a copy of the book and start reading it, and it sure seems like she has. The “mummy porn” is as big in England as it is here in the states. Jolie now believes that she has found her next motion picture to star in.
Dead set on the playing the leading lady, the source continued “Ange is dead set on a major part. She’s up for the challenge.” And what a challenge indeed.
Jolie has the pick of the litter when it comes to film roles so why would she want to something so ridiculous? Is Jolie not feeling the love from Pitt at home anymore? Maybe she thinks she needs to be shown as sexy again and not a “mom” all the time. Whatever the reason may be, there are so many OTHER reasons why I don’t see this working out in her favor at all. Let a D-Lister take this one, Angie.
