Emma Watson is blazing forward on the trail to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie film adaptation with Jonah Hill at her side.. or in this case right on top of her. Or maybe down below her. It really depends on what chapter of the book the movie is covering. After displaying some serious acting chops in movies like Moneyball maybe Jonah Hill isn’t such an unlikely cast for main character Christian Grey.
Emma Watson has always been a shoe in for the female lead, Anastasia Steele. Emma’s real life intelligence, until recently, has mirrored Anastasia’s character from the book.
Now with a new achievement under her belt, Anastasia Steele pales in comparison to Emma. On Sunday, Emma was honored with the MTV Trailblazer Award. In support of his costar, Jonah Hill sent a video message to the MTV Movie Awards to congratulate her.
“Emma Watson is such a beautiful, lovely, talented, hard-working person. I’m very appreciative to be in her life. That’s why I want to take this opportunity to announce officially that we will be starring in the screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Emma, it’s going to be very difficult to go back to being casual, after we start to go so deep into these characters and start exploring each other in such a detailed way. Whew. It’s gonna get rough out there. But I need you to know one thing: My safety word is tangerine.”
So I guess they must not have started filming the really kinky stuff if Jonah hasn’t needed to use his safe word with Emma. It’s clear Emma would be able to dominate an intellectual conversation but what about a sex scene?
