There has been so much chatter these last few months about possible candidates to be cast in that erotic novel series that doubles as mommy porn- of course I mean Fifty Shades of Grey. For every articles dishing on who can handle the coveted role of Christian Grey, there comes another one hot on its’ heels about the newest, hottest front runner for the part of Anastasia Steele. Let’s face it, if they don’t nail the casting (no pun intended) of Ana then it really won’t matter who is chosen to play Mr. Grey because the film will bomb.
The latest name circulating this week is Anne Hathaway. Maybe it’s because she is a real actress, well respected for her craft, or maybe it’s because she set light bulbs a flashin’ this past week when she flashed the world while stepping out of her car, either way as of right now Anne may equal Ana.
On the one hand I could see her immersing herself in the part, because well, that’s what real actresses do. I also have to say, after seeing Anne’s leather get up this week that looked like she was running for Bondage Prom Queen and then going commando beneath it, she’s a bit grittier than I had previously thought. Girlfriend may relish the idea of breathing life and a dark world of sexual energy into Ana.
My only concern is age. Anne is absolutely stunning, but does she look a decade younger than her actual age? Can she pass for a young ingenue that is slowly led into the S&M world? Would you like to see Anne land the part? Do you think it’s something that is even on her radar at this point? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
